Craft beer lovers across the Peach State ‘tapping’ in for Georgia Beer Day on March 5 

The Georgia Craft Brewers Guild (GCBG) invites you to raise a pint to support local, independent craft brewers when Georgia Beer Day returns Saturday, March 5.

The annual celebration, which is organized by the GCBG and benefits its member breweries, highlights Georgia’s vibrant craft beer industry.

This year, 70 breweries across the state are participating (full list below) and will be selling a limited edition full-color collector’s pint glass. GCBG’s member breweries and Boelter Glassware are teaming up to donate $1 from the sale of every glass to the GCBG to help promote and further the common interests of its members and Georgia’s licensed brewing industry.

Designed by artist Ali Lamoureux, the theme of the 2022 commemorative glass is, “From the Blue Ridge Mountains to Driftwood Beach,” which highlights the beauty of Georgia and features two of the state’s most recognizable naturescapes.

In addition to selling the glassware, each participating brewery has the freedom to creatively choose how they celebrate, so please check your favorite brewery’s website and social media pages to learn about specific programming, specials and promotions.

All-You-Can-Eat Crawfish, Classic Low-Country Boil, Live Music, Limited Edition Pint Glasses, Low Country Boil and More 

Saturday, March 5th, 2022 

It’s that time of the year again! Best End Brewing Co.’s third annual Crawfish Boil is returning March 5th, so grab the bib, stretchy pants, and plenty of hand wipes. Seafood enthusiasts are invited to enjoy all-you-can-eat crawfish with classic low-country boil sides, live music, and, of course, cold craft brews. The full menu and bar will also be open for those who prefer Best End’s signature funky flavors over the cajun critters. There is a sweet addition this year of beer floats, in collaboration with Honey Suckle Gelato, for guests to enjoy a boozy treat after the work of cracking open some crawfish. Conveniently located just steps off the Southside BeltLine, Best End’s patio is a perfect urban oasis for a fun spring day.
To participate in the crawfish craze, advance tickets are now available online for $55 and $65 at the door. All tickets provide attendees with a complimentary beer.
Revelers can also raise a *limited edition* glass to this year’s Georgia Beer Day, an annual celebration of- you guessed it Georgia Craft Beer. The day benefits the Georgia Craft Brewers Guild and their member breweries, falling this year on March 5th as well. Adding to the festivities, Best End will be offering a limited edition collector’s glass with the purchase of a craft beer for $10. The 2022 glass is a 16 oz. Libbey Willi Becher showcasing full-color art by artist Ali Lamoreux. Featuring the theme “From the Blue Ridge Mountains to Driftwood Beach,” this year’s design displays the beauty of Georgia with two of its most recognizable nature scapes. Explore the great outdoors, and celebrate Georgia Beer!
The Crawfish Boil will be from 2 pm to 6 pm, while the Georgia Beer Day celebrations will kick off at noon and go until 10 pm.
Best End Brewing is located just off the Southside Beltline in the Lee + White Complex at 1036 White Street SW Atlanta, GA 30310. For more information, visit www.bestendbrewing.com or call 470.391.0999.

Kicking Off on “TWOsday,” February 22, 2022 Through Saturday, February 26


Featuring Over 20 Beer Releases, a Free Comedy Show, Food Vendors, ‘90s-Themed Party & More

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Second Self Beer Co. – the Atlanta craft beverage incubator behind award-winning beers and brands like Rudi’s Hard Seltzer and CBD-infused sparkling water Cirrus – invites the community to join them in celebrating their seventh anniversary with a week-long celebration kicking off on Tuesday, February 22 (also known as TWOsday) through Saturday, February 26 at their Westside brewery (1317 Logan Circle NW).


The festivities will begin on TWOsday (02/22/22) at 2:22pm with a launch party for Totally TWObular (6.22% ABV), a Beermosa-Style Sour IPA brewed with peach and made in collaboration with Bottlesharea fundraising and fund distribution non profit organization for the craft beverage industry. It will be available at the taproom while supplies last with proceeds benefiting Bottleshare.


The celebration continues throughout the week with One-Up Wednesday, where guests are invited to upgrade every pour to the next larger size for the same price from 5-9pm, and Game Night Thursday complete with every type of game – board, Nintendo64, arcade – and $2 pours of Second Self’s newest year-round beer Game Night IPA (6.1% ABV). Combining new school haze with a retro flavor profile, this hazy IPA is simple – yet intricate featuring citra, mosaic and centennial hops for an aroma and flavor profile of papaya, mango and citrus.


On Friday, February 25 from 5-9pm guests are invited to gather under a beer tent outside decked with heaters to enjoy a free comedy show hosted by Vas Sanchez (@the_vas_sanchez_). Inside, the brewery will be honoring their $3 Pint Night with pints of Thai Wheat (4.1% ABV), La Fria (4.5% ABV) and Game Night IPA (6.1% ABV) with the addition of $10 pitchers of Just Beer.


On Saturday, February 26 from 1-9pm, Second Self invites their loyal supporters, new friends, first-time visitors and everyone in between to dust off their scrunchies and pull out that old Backstreet Boys CD for the grand finale – a  ‘90s themed costume party. Free and open to the public, the event will feature a selection of over 20 collaboration beers on tap inside the taproom and outside under a beer tent alongside Second Self merch. Guests can also enjoy throwback tunes from Seth Hoover (@deathtodekaf) and BBQ bites from Pitmaster Bryan Furman. 


“We want to say thank you to all that have supported us and cheered us on these past seven years,” said Cofounder and Head Beer Architect Jason Santamaria. “Second Self would not be here without each and every beer-lover that has stopped by the taproom, taken a chance on a different six-pack at the store or threw us a like on Instagram! We hope to see everyone come out and help us celebrate.”

Good Word Brewing: Brunch Edition

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 8/30/21

Crossing over a pair of tracks into a quaint, charming downtown, is an area where local bars, retail, and restaurants dot the shady, tree-lined street. On the corner, Good Word Brewing is a downtown Duluth local gem that prides themselves on unforgettable frosty brews, delectable brunch, and a stellar all-day menu, all in a beautiful OTP downtown. It’s definite, the word is out that Good Word Brewing has a fantastic brunch that should go on your brunch list! With items like this spicy number, gooey cinnamon roll, sensational sausage platter, amazing avocado toast, stellar seasonal hash, beer, brunch cocktails, and even slushies, we were in brunch heaven. Let’s dig in.

Something Good Word is definitely known for is their brews, so we tried a flight with 4 great options. We got Hollow Moon Stout, Are You Living in a Computer Simulation Helles Lager, The Quantum Immortality English Porter, and Face for Radio Pale.  The Hollow Moon Stout that’s roasty and toasty yet mellows on the back was Liz’s favorite, while Are You Living In a Computer Simulation is a Helles Lager that’s smooth and drinkable, great for patio sips and the second favorite. The Quantum Immortality English Porter was malty but light and refreshing with a hint of bitterness. John’s favorite was the Face for Radio that he said was well balanced hops and refreshing. Beyond the brews, they have fun brunch cocktails and slushies! They were out of the slushie, but we tried the South 75. It is botanical gin mixed with bright lemon that starts out tart and almost has a grapefruit end, finished with a splash of bubbly. Who doesn’t love a little bubbly with brunch?

Of the sharable brunch dishes, we opted for the Cinnamon Roll, Sausage Board, and Avocado Toast. Up first is the Cinnamon Roll that’s warm, gooey, sticky sweet and rich! After the sweet hits you, the spiciness of the cinnamon comes in and balances this roll out. The best part is the sticky, sweet middle on the bottom, so start there and work your way up and out. You’ll thank us! Moving from sweet to savory, the sausage board is out of this world! We were most impressed by the presentation and flavors of this board!  Starting with the homemade sausage that’s on one hand spicy, the Marita, and then the other hand bright, Ginger Basil, both pop with flavor. Pair either with pickled vegetables, toast, or mustard, you can’t go wrong. Don’t sleep on the deli sliced sausage with pistachios either; it will melt in your mouth! Finally, we simply had to try the essential Avocado Toast.  It’s creamy and light with the richness of soft-boiled eggs, tangy onion and micro greens. The sesame seasoning and toast give it a crunch and a good dusting of flavor, but not too overpowering. It’s a great overall complete dish with creamy, rich, tangy, and earthy.

Spicy and hearty are two good words to describe our main entrees, Nashville Hot Chicken Biscuit and the Seasonal Hash. Our favorite dish of the day, the Nashville Hot Chicken Biscuit, has it all! This spicy bite starts crunchy, tender, and sweet then the kick on the back of the throat is JUST RIGHT. It’s the perfect flavor combination from the warm and sweet honey to the crispy and hearty biscuit, then the crunchy and spicy chicken. The best bite is as you let the biscuit sit in the honey, it becomes a little soft and sucks in all the flavors: spicy, sweet, sassy! Divine. On the other hand, the Seasonal Hash is a staple dish for a hearty appetite. Bright sauce topped with tender, crisp fingerling potatoes that pop in your mouth. Then, tangy onions, peppers round out the hash and topped with a rich, hearty, runny egg. Let the egg run out and mix with the mixture below, that’s the ticket!

After our brunch, we strolled through the rest of the downtown area, with green space, and shops that we thoroughly enjoyed as well. What do you want to try at Good Word Brewing?
