Chaz will be in Columbia, SC in a few weeks and won't even drive down to Atlanta to have a few beers with us.  I guess I know where we stand.   :kickrock:

:bird:

I'm going to visit Mikey, not y'all.  :P
#### you.   <_<

You're welcome to come join us in Columbia. Most of his friends there are your age anyways.  :mellow:

If I'm not mistaken, a lot of the Atlanta Beer People will be in Belgium... not that this matters much, but my normal source of free lodging will be gone.  I will be on the road that weekend, but haven't really decided where I'm going, so if this develops further, I might still come.  There is also a promising gathering in TN that I may go to.

I would say that if this is open, IE no limit via ticketing, that it is likely to be a zoo.
non-conformists are all the same...

Probably but who knows. 

Tara and I got tickets and invites from SW, so I figure I'll go.  We will probably get there early to get make sure we get what we want, and we can bounce if its gets crazy.  I am sure we can somehow find something else to do in Atlanta if we decide to leave.

I had no intention of going, but as usual it was a frat party/zoo according to reports.

There were SEVERAL hundred people there, but it was still a good time.  We had a group of 7 of us, and we were able to move around freely and had a really good time.  You should have made it out, Ding.  Lots of tasty treats were had.

It was only in the old forum.  Still a calendar entry for it.

Noon - 4 on the 24th.  I usually get there at opening so I can get a spot and get some food before the craziness starts.

List of what people have signed up to bring so far below:

Sweet. I was mostly wondering what everyone is bringing. I may have an 08 Abyss for Curtis's vertical.  Gotta poke around and see what I am bringing.

Ben already signed up to bring an 08 to go with the rest from Curtis, but I am sure people wouldn't complain if there were 2 :)

Don't forget the pre-party at AtlBeerDog's (Dan Rosen) house Friday night, which will be doubling as Joan and my 25th wedding anniversary celebration... this means my cellar will be raided quite significantly once again.

I asked and Dan said you and Tara are welcome to stay over, there are lots of couches, a basement, and plenty of floor space for air mattress.

We might have a buddy joining us to HMOG, so I don't know if Friday will be in the cards but I will definitely keep it in mind.   :cheers:

Might want to get the beers you are bringing onto the SS.  According to a post by Lee, if it gets too big then they will just use the SS as the guest list.

I talked to Lee at BYCO and he knows we are coming but I'll throw some stuff on the list.

One of my sneaker buddies in Atlanta just turned 21 and he called me asking for advice on what to buy, where to drink, etc.

He mostly likes Blue Moon and Corona right now, but he's trying to get into IPAs.

I'm not really sure what's available in Atlanta, so can you guys give me some good stores, good breweries and good places to drink. He goes to Emory and lives on campus if that helps at all.

He lives at Emory . . . so he's not far from Decatur and Brick Store Pub which is often considered one of the best beer bars in the Southeast and some claim the country.  They always have Weihenstephaner Hefe on tap and that should merry well with his love for Blue Moon. Draft and bottle lists to give you an idea of what's available in Atlanta: http://www.brickstorepub.com/draughtbeer/   Leon's is an off-shoot of Brick Store down the road, good beer selection but they focus more on high end food.  Still a good vibe.  To be honest, there are cool spots for drinking/eating all over Decatur.  Ale Yeah is a beer store not far from there.  Its a little small and boutique-like, but they have a good selection and a good growler selection. 

Elsewhere you have The Porter in Little 5 Points which is another very nice beer bar. I don't deviate much from Brick Store to be honest, so my beer bar suggestions are thin and biased.

  Beer stores: Hop City on the west side, Greens Liquor (on Ponce de Leon and another on Buford Highway), Tower has quite a few stores and they aren't bad either. 

Breweries:  I can vouch for SweetWater of course.  They have an awesome college vibe going on there with a laid back, stoner atmosphere.  In my experience, it is always fun when you visit SweetWater.  5 Seasons has brewpubs around the city with pretty damn good food and equally good beer.  Monday Night Brewing just opened their brewery to tours, but I haven't made it over there yet or tried any of their beers. 


Atlanta has a huge selection these days of available beers and breweries (Bell's, Founders, Port, and Green Flash to name a few). I would look at the Brick Store link above for suggestions from your end.  If he wants IPAs, you can't go wrong with SweetWater IPA of course.  There is also a small brewery South of Atlanta called Jailhouse and they are making some stupid good beers these days.  Available all over the city.  Hope this helps.
