Sweetwater Brewing Company Expansion

Sweetwater Brewing stretches its legs…

In June 2011, the gang over at Sweetwater Brewing Company broke ground on an expansion to increase their capacity from 100K barrels to 400K barrels. Quite the undertaking, but with their ever-increasing popularity, the need for more space to increase production became a necessity. Fast forward to November 2011. Just a short five months after cranes and bulldozers leveled the adjacent parking lot and corrugated metal building, a new Sweetwater Brewing Company stands in its place.

The Time Is Ripe For Pears

Check the neck…

In preparation of pear season, the Pear Bureau Northwest/USA Pears embarked on an eight-city tour to increase awareness around the oblong fruit. The tour, dubbed “The Time is Ripe“, occupied local supermarkets during the day to educate consumers on how to enjoy pears at the peak of ripeness. In the evening, dinners were hosted in one of each city’s premier restaurants to showcase the influence of the pear in a four-course menu.

Eat St. Comes to Atlanta

Atlanta Food Truck scene…it’s time for your close up.

The Atlanta food truck scene has been piping hot for a minute now…this we know. Every week these food trucks descend upon bustling Atlanta neighborhoods to treat the public to their own brand of specialty fare. Menu items that are not only quick and hearty, but are also served out the back of a truck. Classy, right? So we couldn’t have been more happy to find out that the Food Network show Eat St. was putting down stakes in Atlanta for a 5-day stop to feature some of our city’s favorite food trucks.

The “Fancy Pants” Burger at Grindhouse

Oh, you fancy, huh?

How do you stand out among a sea of burger joints? Make your burgers special. Each Tuesday brings something new and delicious to Grindhouse when they add a unique addition to their regular menu. Today’s special? A thick, juicy 1/2 pound burger on a fresh baked bun, cooked to any temp (as rare as you want) topped with aged white cheddar, habanero pimento cheese, sliced cornichons, field greens, and a house-made tarragon mustard, served with fresh cut fries and a chipotle honey mustard dipping sauce, all for 10 bucks. If you’re feeling frisky, add on a boozy milkshake and sit on that badass patio of theirs. It’s a perfect score in our book.

Chicken and the Egg

Modern Southern cuisine comes to roost in Marietta.

We typically don’t venture outside the perimeter on our food excursions. With so much variety and an inordinate amount of new restos opening daily, traveling outside of the Midtown/Downtown “safe zone” can be a daunting task. But every once in awhile a place comes along to make gassing up your car and traveling into unchartered territory more worthwhile. Enter Chicken and the Egg, a new modern take on sustainable Southern cuisine in the heart of Marietta.

I Spirit Vodka

Italian vodka…yes, we’re quite serious…

Imagine that you’ve been invited to a traditional Italian dinner. The spread is wrought with artisanal cheeses, breads, meats, and pastas. Basically you’re dining at the Louis Restaurant from The Godfather, sans the murder and violence. The waiter brings out a tall teardrop-shaped bottle of a brilliantly crystal spirit. In utter disbelief that no wine is being served at the Italian feast, you’re even more shocked to find the crystal spirit adorned in a bed of freshly-picked cherry tomatoes, aromatic basil, and assorted wild berries. The waiter explains that this is the I Spirit Vodka tasting experience, and that your world is about to be forever changed.
