Atlanta has somehow become a craft beer mecca with some of the greatest beer bars in the world. This is a tribute to the beers and the bars.

Best bets for the week

This week there is a lot of great stuff at The Porter.  Stone Double Arrogant Bastard, one of my favorite American ales is at The Porter for $3.50.  They also have New Belgium's Lips of Faith La Folie, a new sour ale that gets good reviews, and Mikkeller Santa’s Little Helper, one of my favorite Christmas ales that probably won't be around much longer.  

The real fun starts Friday though, when Allagash takes over 10 taps.  Besides the readily available White and Curieux we'll be treated to rare offerings of Hugh Malone, Burnam Road, Fluxus, Victory, Odyssey, Interlude, Four, and Triple.  I'm especially looking forward to having Interlude again (it was on tap at BSP a few months back).  It's a beautiful sour beer.

Also try to head over to BSP for two very rare Belgians, Cantillon Lou Pepe Kriek '07 and De Ranke Guldenberg.  Bottles of the Cantillon run $25.00 in liquor stores, but you can get it on tap now for $7.00.  This is a real lambic, supposedly extremely tart and complex.  De Ranke Guldenberg is a strong blonde ale with more hoppiness than you would associate with most Belgian triples.
