To usher in the flowing taps citywide during next week's third annual beer week in Atlanta, is none other than Atlanta's own, Ale Sharpton and posse, with Beast Feast!
Tonights Beast Feast!
Chefs Mike LaSage from Bone Lick BBQ nad P'Cheen; Joey Ahn from Soho; Parish's Edward Rusel and Jared Lee Pyles from Villains in Old Fourth Ward are magically transformed into beasts to coincide with the Halloween season. Each will then contribute to one beast of a feast! Ale pairings from Sweetwater Brewing Company are expected to harmonize with culinary creations from the fab five chefs on hand. Anti-ale aficionados (or party poopers, if you will) can sip Piccolo Tesoro's rose moscato all night and can jump in on the heavenly delights from OMG Cup and Cakes, along with gourmet ice cream from several area crafters.
For booz and sweets alone you're looking at $19.99 plus a 20% code for my readers. The $39.99 "Killer Deal" includes five feasts from the fab five chefs, plus booz, sweets and a festive environment for sure. But remember: MY READERS CAN USE PROMO CODE "KICKIT" FOR AN EXTRA 20% OFF WHEN ORDERING THROUGH www.xorbia.com for your readers:kickit, TONIGHT, from 7-10pm, at Sweetwater Brewery headquarters, at 195 Ottley Drive, NE, in Atlanta.
