Beer Town: Why ‘craft beer’ vs. ‘big beer’ is such a bitter battle

The Brewers Association “Independent Craft” Seal. CONTRIBUTED BY: Brewers Association

“Who really owns the beer you’re buying?”

That’s the big question the Brewers Association (BA) asked in late June, when it launched its seal for independent brewers.

Part of a branding program aimed at giving consumers an easier way to distinguish between “craft beer”and “big beer,” it was the latest volley in an ongoing cold war that heated up to the boiling point in 2017, following news of the sale of Asheville’s Wicked Weed to AB-InBev.

In case you missed it, the once-beloved small producer of sour and barrel-aged beers ...

Head to the New Continental Beer Garden for Weekend Happy Hour, Bocce

Source: Washingtonian Food

The newly-opened Continental Beer Garden feels like a colorful oasis in otherwise concrete-heavy Rosslyn, sandwiched between high-rise apartment buildings and corporate offices. That’s exactly why owner and longtime DC restaurateur, Curt Large, decided to put it there. The neighborhood needed an outdoor spot for drinking and socializing—a spot that would cater to the happy hour crowd that hangs […]

Bob Townsend’s Beer Pick: Arches Bohemian Riot

Arches Brewing Bohemian Riot./Photo courtesy of Arches Brewing.

Last week, I visited Arches Brewing in Hapeville, where I met up with brewmaster Jamey Adams, and we sipped through the current draft lineup, which is focused on lagers.

Among the offerings, I enjoyed the year-round flagship, Unseasonal Lager, an American pale lager brewed with Noble hops, and the spring-to-summer seasonal, Mexican Empire, which is a Vienna-style lager commonly brewed in Mexico.

But I was really taken with Bohemian Riot, a crisp tribute to the beers of Pilsen that is this week’s Beer Pick.

The Brick Store Pub: 20 years and lots of beer

Source: Atlanta Magazine

Dave Blanchard, Tom Moore, and Mike Gallagher, the founders of the Brick Store PubPhotograph by Josh Jameson On June 27, 1997, the Brick Store Pub in Decatur opened its doors for the first time. It was a cloudy, humid Friday evening, and founders Dave Blanchard, Mike Gallagher, and Tom Moore had no idea that the neighborhood pub they’d built would become known as one of the country’s best beer bars, with accolades from popular publications such as Beer Advocate and RateBeer. The three friends and business partners were early champions of a 2004 law that raised the alcohol limit for ...

Stop everything. These are the best wings in metro Atlanta.

The wings at Chase’s Grille and WingeryPhotograph by Ted Golden. Chicken wings are beloved by Southerners, and I am no exception. For the last few years, my local go-to was Jamal’s, a literal wing shack near the Georgia Dome that has since moved to 2001 Martin Luther King Junior Drive. Their wings are small and manageable—not to mention super crispy and loaded up with plenty of lemon pepper or buffalo sauce. But a recent trip to historic downtown Norcross changed the game. Chase’s Grille and Wingery, which opened two years ago in the old Cotton Gin space, has quietly been ...

How 5 Georgia Tech students helped Monday Night Brewing with a predicament

Five mechanical engineering seniors at Georgia Tech invented the Beer Hopper as their capstone projectPhotograph by Jo Tapper When a brewery wants to design and develop a novel, efficient machine to improve beer production, they’ll probably call a mechanical engineer. But for a small, fast-growing craft brewer with a limited budget and resources, the beer-loving college students from the nearby engineering school might just be the best resource. Heck, sometimes the students are the ones calling the brewery. Senior engineering students at Georgia Tech are required to complete a mandatory capstone design course, obliging them to work in teams on ...
