Atwater Beer Buzz December 28

Let the New Year’s preparations begin!

The holiday season is certainly in full swing, with Santa, storytelling, caricature artists, gingerbread houses, and craft beer! The snow is coming down in fits and bursts, leaving a soft blanket almost every morning…so we enjoyed a white Christmas! Atwater on Gore Creek has been busy showcasing their fantastic new winter menu, and Fireside has their winter-themed cocktails flowing in addition to our Holiday/Winter craft beers.

Our weekly Friday Night Flights continue throughout the festivities, and we’re looking forward to Big Beers, Belgians & Barleywines as well as our Brewmaster’s Weekends returning with Eric Rode from Tommyknocker Brewery in February. We’ll be drawing for our Sweepstakes winner for Tommyknocker weekend at the beginning of January, so watch these weekly emails for the announcement of the February Sweepstakes Winner!

Look for our Wednesday Craft Beer Tastings to resume on January 16th with Brian Dillon from Odell Brewing Co. I hear he might be pouring a special new release for you all in addition to his other goodies!
