Source: Atlanta Magazine

There’s no doubt Atlanta’s craft beer scene is a fast-growing one. From Orpheus to Gate City to Scofflaw, new breweries have popped up all over the metro area during the last few years. One thing Atlanta breweries generally don’t have, however, is a full-service restaurant. New Realm Brewing Company is looking to change that, with the opening of its 20,000-square-foot restaurant and brewery along the Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail. Located next to TWO Urban Licks, New Realm’s restaurant is open to guests of all ages. Chef Julio Delgado, formerly of JP Atlanta, designed the menu, incorporating items that pair well ...

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.

Hapeville’s small-scale Arches Brewing is about to go big

Source: Atlanta Journal Constitution

Arches Brewing opened a little over a year ago, and since then, it’s been flying a bit under the radar. But it looks like that’s about to change very soon.

Located in Hapeville, in the new downtown arts district, near the Porsche Experience Center and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the craft brewery is unusual in a number of ways.

First and foremost, Arches focuses on lager beers, a style that takes longer and is more labor-intensive to make, and is arguably more expensive because of that.

Second, the three-barrel electric nano brewing system Arches’ five founders have been using isn’t exactly ...

Bob Townsend’s Beer Pick: Highland Daycation IPA

Love it or hate it, or think it’s an oxymoron, so-called “Session IPA” is here to stay.

The style pairs a hop-dominant flavor profile with a lower alcohol content than typical American IPAs, making it the kind of beer you can drink during an extended “session” at your local beer bar.

Founders All Day IPA was the first to make it big in the category, and remains a go-to. But other examples include the likes of Sweetwater Hash Session, Oskar Blues Pinner, Stone Go To, and 21st Amendment Down to Earth.

Learn How to Love Craft Beer (Even If You Don’t Think You Can)

Source: Washingtonian Food

For people who’ve grown up drinking mild mass-market beers, American craft brews can be a rough first date. They tend to emphasize hops, whose strong taste and bitter notes can repel palates used to lagers built on rice and corn that have almost nothing to cut through their sweetness.

Like coffee, beer is a taste that requires time. “You don’t wake up out of the womb and start listening to heavy metal,” says Will Cook, a brewer at Atlas Brew Works. Grow up with hard rock and you might eventually get into Guns N’ Roses, “and then eventually ...
