ABC Beverage Tastings: April 2020

600 S. Barracks Street Pensacola, FL

Atlas Oyster House is proud to present the next installment of Atlas Beverage Classes (A.B.C.). This semester we will be focusing on local breweries, wineries and distilleries, discovering what is going on in the beverage world right here in our backyard. In addition to the beverage tastings, we will feature small plates paired with each beverage, as prepared by Sous Chef Chad Gorey. A.B.C. will be held outside, on the Deck Bar, the first Thursday of the month (January through June) and will feature a local presenter discussing the highlighted beverages. Classes will consist of four tastings of beverages with four mini appetizers to complement each tasting. Classes will cover the basics as well as specific information regarding the history of the brewery/winery/distillery and their beers, wines, or spirits. There are two classes every month, each an hour and a half long. The first class begins promptly at 5:00 p.m. with the second class beginning at 7:00 p.m. Class cost is $25 per person (plus tax and gratuity), per class, which gets each participant one tasting of each of the featured beverages. In addition, throughout the class, participants should be prepared for “pop quizzes,” where we will be giving away T-shirts, beer glassware, gift certificates and more. Seating is limited, reservations are required; be sure to make yours by emailing [email protected] or calling 850-287-0200. The featured themes for each class are as follows: April 2nd: Escambia County Home Brewers (Pensacola, FL) The Escambia Bay Homebrew Club was founded in the spring of 1985 in Pensacola, Florida. The club’s mission is to further educate us in the art of making fine adult beverages and to share the art of making these beverages with others that are interested in learning. Over the years they have expanded to a full portfolio of which we will sample a few.
