Dock Street Brewery/Facebook

Naturally, they’re throwing a party to celebrate — and they’re providing a memento that will last quite a bit longer than the buzz from your beer.

Starting at 3 p.m. this Thursday, Dock Street will offer their West of Center Pale Ale in cans for the first time.

“To Dan!” double coconut IPAPhotograph courtesy of Wild Heaven Beer On June 6, Atlanta’s craft beer community mourned the loss of one of their own when Dan Rosen, the cofounder of Mazurt Brewing Company, died in an apparent hit-and-run incident on Briarcliff Road. While Mazurt is a brewery-in-planning—it doesn’t yet have a brick-and-mortar location but distributes its products through the festival circuit—it’s already earned a name for itself.

The beer was ...
