Meet the Brewer/Beer Dinner – Terrapin & SOHO Atlanta!

I have to say I really love it when a restaurant  takes an interest in beer.  For the longest time, most restaurants you would step foot into would have the same 3 or 4 beers you’ve seen on tap a thousand times prior.  Luckily, that situation  is changing.  Beer is evolving.   Many restaurants these days are starting to see the complexity of craft beer, and that food pairing isn’t just for wine anymore.

I got to meet Frank Smith, General Manger of SOHO Restaurant in Vinings last week.   Frank was on the quest for greater beer knowledge, because he wants to expand SOHO’s selection.   In my “professional” opinion, that is a great idea!  While speaking with Frank, he mentioned that SOHO is hosting a beer dinner this Tuesday, with brewer Spike Buckowski in attendance.   If you haven’t met Spike or been to SOHO, I can think of no better time to do both.  Here is the menu —
