What beer events are tonight in & around Atlanta?
Wednesday night was the weekly "Wild Card Wednesday" at Red Brick Brewery. This week, they tapped an experimental firkin of Brown presented by HOTOBERFEST. As a beer geek, I was excited when HOTOBERFEST shared about the cask early Wednesday (typically, we don't know what the Wild Card is until we get to the brewery at 5pm). I shared the sneak peek immediately on twitter, so that my followers could make their evenings plans accordingly.
The turnout was decent. Some locals, and a few of the Atlanta Beer fanatics stopped by for the tasting.
I received a some messages Thursday expressing frustration, because my buddies had missed the event. [In the same way, I frequently hear about a tasting or open gathering "after the fact".]
I've found a few online calendars that list Atlanta beer happenings. Unfortunately, most are associated with private clubs or only post major festivals. I am certain, if the general populous were made aware of daily interesting beer events, the events would have higher attendance.
I just had to vent.
