About: The Yard at Ponce City Market will be home to one of the biggest holiday brouhahas Atlanta has ever seen. It’s The Ultimate Showdown of Naughty vs. Nice, with the green, mean, anything-but-clean Grinch and his punishing posse in one corner of the boxing ring and Santa Claws and his jolly crew in the other! Come one, come all and pick a side – TEAM NAUGHTY with Ginger Shred Man, The Iceman and The Nutcracker, or TEAM NICE with Wreath the Reaper, Peppermint Prince and Rowdy Rudy Rudolph. Claim a ringside spot to witness a lighthearted wrestling match for the ages that begins at 11am. The Ultimate Showdown is free to all, and guests are welcome to come early for face-painting, poster-making, temporary tattoos and more family fun starting at 10:30am. Following the wrestling match, Santa and the Grinch will take up residence at Ponce City Market, and guests are invited to bring their cameras for photos with Santa and the Grinch from 1-6pm. Santa will reside in the King of Pops Tree Elves Holiday Forest all season long, and the Grinch will be in his lair on the second floor above the Central Food Hall. Guests can sign up for photos with Santa and the Grinch once onsite and will receive a text notification 15 minutes before their photo time. For those looking to check holiday shopping off their list, we’re sharing Ponce City Market’s Holiday Gift Guide here.

Coffee Cinnamon Old 41- Our Gold Medal winning Oatmeal Stout brewed with Cinnamon and Coffee Beans.
Black Cherry Vanilla Stout- This rich and roasty Stout is perfectly complimented with black cherry and vanilla beans giving this full bodied stout a touch of sweetness with a creamy finish.
Both Sides of the Track – Our collaboration with Burnt Hickory Brewing! American strong ale brewed with rye and black peppercorn.
Dank County Red IPA – Our seasonal Red IPA has a beautiful, deep amber hue, and an amazing hop aroma. Dank County provides a punch of dank, aromatic hops and a solid malt backbone to enjoy in the cooler months of the year.
Black & Tan – A combination of our Blonde Ale and Oatmeal Stout make for a beautiful and tasty black & tan.
KBA – Starting its life as a Strong Amber Ale, Kennesaw Bourbon Ale is transformed through the addition of American Oak Spirals aged on Dry County Bourbon. The addition of the bourbon spirals delivers delicious vanilla and oak notes, while still maintaining the smooth Amber base.
Maltlanta – Brewed with 100% floor malted Maris Otter and a classic English yeast strain, this barley wine was boiled for over 4 hours to create rich and flavorful beer using only a high-quality base malt. This beer has tons of malt and toffee character on the nose, and a rich, full body with notes of bread pudding, caramel sauce, and toasty English malt with a smooth finish.
