SECOND SELF BEER 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 9/16/19

Saturday, October 12th at Noon: All-Day Celebration will Include Outdoor Tap Trucks & Collaboration Beers Including a Chocolate-Inspired Beer Benefitting Disaster Relief for Puerto Rico

Local Atlanta brewery Second Self Beer Company is hosting their five-year anniversary party at their Westside taproom (1317 Logan Cir NW) on Saturday, October 12 from noon-10pm!

Celebrating a half-decade since opening on Atlanta’s Westside, Second Self invites the community to an all-day event featuring 30 different beer offerings both inside the tasting room and outside on the lawn at various tap trucks. In the words of Co-founder and Beer Architect Jason Santamaria, “Since we opened our doors in 2014, we’ve worked with a number of  local businesses in the community that have played an important role in our story.” As a way to say “thank you,” Second Self will roll out unique beers during the party that have been developed through creative collaborations from friends like United Distributors Craft Team, Hop City, Brick Store/Leon’s, Atlys Media, Pulp Hot Sauce, Blue Hominy PR, and World of Beverage Grayson.

Two additional friends of Second Self will also be celebrating their one-year anniversary: local Puerto Rican pop-up restaurant, Mi Abuelas, and coffee roaster Slow Wave Coffee. The three have collaborated to create a hot chocolate-inspired beer for the festivities named El Velorio (translated ‘The Wake’). The beer is reflective of the common cultural practice of serving hot chocolate at a Puerto Rican funeral, and proceeds from each sold will go towards benefitting disaster relief for Puerto Rico. Following the party, Second Self will carry the remaining supply of this beer at their taproom and will sell some in limited distribution.

Other Atlanta organizations also joining in on the fun include Georgia English Bulldog Rescue, Carnival ATL, Terminus Legion, Go Kickball and Friends of the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue, as well as a handful of vendors such as  Illegal Food, The Real Mexican Vittles and Psychedelic Snow Co, in which guests can purchase bites to pair with their beers.

Three different ticketing options, General Admission, VIP and Designated Driver, are available for attendees to purchase on Eventbrite prior to the anniversary party and at the door day-off. General Admission tickets ($25) will provide six drink tickets and a take-home souvenir glass. VIP tickets ($75) will include the same souvenir glass in addition to two 16 oz cans of The Wake, unlimited pours throughout the party and entry one hour early as first tasters. Those who plan to drive but still partake in the fun can purchase Designated Driver tickets ($5) and enjoy a selection of non-alcoholic beverages including Cirrus CBD mocktails, coffee, and hot chocolate.

As two Georgia Tech graduates and fraternity roommates who took a leap of faith to open a brewery in their hometown, Jason Santamaria and Chris Doyle have seen a huge growth in their business in just five short years. What began as a small taproom has since expanded twice, with increases in production capabilities and growth into markets across Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina. The team is determined  to not stop at beer but to become a beverage incubator in the South, with a diversity of drink offerings.

Second Self City Winery Collaboration Oathbreaker and We All Must Die Release

Date: Saturday, May 18th and Sunday, May 19th

Time: All Day

About: Second Self Beer Company, the craft brewery based in Atlanta, Georgia, will release a limited dual bottle collaboration with City Winery: Oathbreaker, a dark farmhouse ale, and We All Must Die, a hoppy farmhouse ale, during the Game of Thrones finale weekend in May. Both offerings – Oathbreaker at $15 per bottle, We All Must Die at $18 per bottle – will be sold at Second Self while supplies last. Although available separately, Second Self recommends purchasing these varieties together to experience the full breadth contrast of fermenting with wine barrels versus incorporating must. Beginning on Saturday, May 18, Second Self will officially debut Oathbreaker and We All Must Die at its Westside tasting room, and on Sunday, May 19, both beers will also be sold at a Game of Thrones series finale party hosted at the brewery. In addition to tasting the beer, guests to the party will have the opportunity to interact with medieval characters and enjoy gothic-inspired fare from Illegal Food. Oathbreaker (8.3% ABV) 200 bottles – is a dark farmhouse ale that is 100%  fermented in City Winery Petite Sirah barrels with Second Self’s Sadboy culture (a blend of Brettanomyces Lambicus and Belgian Saison yeast). Marked by rich notes of chocolate and black cherry, a mild roast, and medium body, this dark farmhouse ale is very complex and opens up even more as it warms. It is bottle conditioned with white wine yeast, resulting in higher carbonation and finer texture. We All Must Die (7.0% ABV) 80 bottles – is a hoppy farmhouse ale fermented in stainless then blended with a ¼ pound of Viognier must per gallon from City Winery, in a neutral oak barrel. From there, the beer was finished with Brettanomyces bruxellensis along with the native yeast from the must. When you first decork this beer, you get the full spectrum of Brett’s springtime aroma and flavor with notes of hay and fully ripened fruit. This is complemented with the citrus notes of the hops while the acidity of the vigonier must provides a nice brightness to the beer, as well as a very dry finish. It is bottle conditioned with white wine yeast, resulting in higher carbonation and finer texture.
