A. It’s hard.
2. It requires a lot of barley.
III. Not everyone has a spare abandoned tile factory lying around.
Raise a frosty mug to Monday Night Brewing, an industrial microbrewery that doubles as a pretty perfect spot to sip cold IPAs, opening for tours and tastings later this month on the Westside.
If you’ve been to a local bar before, you’re probably familiar with who these guys are and what they do with beer. If not, well, just know they make exceptionally tasty ales (the kind that are sometimes aged in old bourbon barrels). This is their new home. And you should really get out more.
Like any institution of higher beer learning, they’ve got the whole brewhouse tour thing going on here. You’ll want to do that. It’ll be your chance to get a sneak peek at the making of their mysterious new beer (hint: it’s a double IPA). Also, there’ll be draft samples.
Of course, if you’re just in the mood to drink some suds, play some Space Invaders and not think about a damn thing (otherwise known as “anytime directly after work”), there’s a barroom adorned with a mural of Atlanta landmarks, a wall of several hundred neckties (don’t ask) and all the Monday Night beers on tap.
That’s what’s known as a home-field advantage.
