Man, July has been a blur! From Montreal to Denver, Birmingham, Charleston and finally back to Atlanta, I love traveling but it's time to settle in for a bit. Especially when I have this awesome Ale B-Q Beer Dinner coming up with one of the most revered BBQ institutions in the South, Sweet Auburn BBQ, based in the Virginia Highlands district.
As with all my beer dinners, I pick the breweries to partner with and pair a few of their select beers with the delectable cuisine the chef and talented cooking staff want to hook up. This upcoming joint on Tuesday, August 15th will have renowned Chef Cameron Floyd hooking up the awesome menu below. The brew? I'm showing Georgia love and going with Decatur's Three Taverns and Creature Comforts straight outta Athens. Heard of 'em? (Being facetious there.) I have to taste two more brews Three Taverns has for me to pair, so look for the beer coupling of every course soon!
Below is the stellar press release written by my homies over at Blue Hominy. Oh! And if you have allergies or diet restrictions, vegetarian, chicken and seafood options will be available; just kindly let us know so we can accommodate you. We want everyone happy, content, educated and most importantly, full. Sound good?
See you there!
It's going to be one to remember.
Much love y'all!
