ATLANTA – To celebrate an inaugural year of unprecedented growth for a new Georgia craft brewery and to say thanks to its fans, Scofflaw Brewing Company will host a One Year Anniversary Party on Saturday, Sept. 16.
In keeping with the brewery’s independent attitude and to mark the recent change in Georgia beer laws, Scofflaw will open its tasting room and outdoor beer garden to all. No tickets are required for entry and customers can order a wide array of beer choices by the glass.
As might be expected, Scofflaw’s line-up will include plenty of IPAs – 19 in all.
“We’ll be selling cold craft by the pour, like a normal brewery anywhere else in the USA,” said co-founder Matt Shirah, referencing the change on Sept. 1 allowing Georgia brewers to sell individual pours in tap rooms. “We’ll have bottles and cans for sale too. Kids are welcome as always. We’ll do our best to bring the community together now that we’ve gotten through Tropical Storm Irma.”
The core line-up of American IPAs will be on tap – Basement, Hooligan, Double Jeopardy, Westside, POG Basement, Sucker Punch and Grapefruit Westside. In addition, there will be four imperial IPAs – Upper Westside, Double Basement, POG Double Basement and the new Goats Milk IPA. The party will also feature the debut of Drop Kick and the return of Lousy.
Six cask IPAs are also being featured, including Goats Milk #5 and Arnold Palmer Basement – an IPA made with black tea.
Several barrel-aged beers will be on tap. Three variations of the much sought-after Absentium imperial stout series – Vanilla, Coffee and Honey – will be poured as well as Maniac, a strong ale fermented on cherries.
The imperial wheat beer known as Sneaky will also be served in Raspberry and Pineapple Coconut versions. Haole, the brewery’s first pilsner, continues its inaugural tap room appearance. And yep, it’s an imperial version – made with Hawaiian honey and pineapple. Including six casks, 28 different beers will be on tap. (Details on the casks are available on Twitter @ScofflawBrewing.)
The party starts at noon and runs until 8 p.m. The Chip McGuire Band begins at noon, followed by DJ Sky. Food will be available for purchase from DAS BBQ. The brewery urges attendees to use ride services such as Uber and Lyft, cabs or designated drivers.
