Last night kicked off the weekend leading up to the Classic City Brew Fest on Sunday. If you’ve followed along then you know it’s four days of great craft beer at different venues just begging for good companionship. Sarah and I headed down to Trappeze Pub to sample the 3 pins of Phlux Capacitor, Terrapin Beer Company‘s new side project offering. Each cask was flavored using differently ingredients. Vanilla beans, maple syrup and Nelson Sauvin hops were used to produce three different beers from one. Trappeze never disappoints with rare and unique beers either. We met up with Kathleen who chose the Evil Twin Ryan and Beaster Bunny. While Sarah was excited for the New Belgium Valentines.
Denver made it over to Chops and Hops for the Randall of Terrapin Hopzilla plus taco and pint night. The Hopzilla was randallized through guava, lemons, ginger and vanilla beans. This may be one of the prettiest Randalls I’ve seen. The comment was made that Hopzilla never tasted so good. The featured pint was newly released to Georgia, Blue Point Hoptical Illusion paired along side hickory smoked Wagyu tacos with pickles and Dijon.
I may not make it out Friday but hope to get some reports from Aromas during their barrel aged Brewhaha. The list looks amazing, but to see the full list you’ll have to visit in person. The surprises will only be on the tap board. Who knows what Saturday will bring. Not sure what to do? Here’s the full list of events. Athens Craft beer weekend
Stay classy Athens. Prost!
