Guinness Perfect Pour Atlanta 2012 [Pics]

Last night was rowdy to say the least.  What did I do?  Partied at the 2012 Atlanta Guinness Perfect Pour Con  Competitors from some of the city’s best bars came out to compete, in a bracketed, single elimination style Guinness pour off.  Bartenders were dropped 2 per round due to “pour fouls” like: overflowing pour, excessive bubbles, too much head, not enough, or getting taps caught in the pour.  Two expert judges scrutinized each pint, eliminating those little screw ups that keep that Guinness pint from looking its best.  Hi five to everyone moving slow after a night of Guinness & car bombs.

Competitors included:  Tilted Kilt, Pub 71, Donovan’s, Ri Ra, Taco Mac, The Fred Bar,  Cheeky, Limerick Junction, Olde Town Tavern, Meehan’s, Old Blind Dog, Fado, Wild Wing, Padriac’s, The Nook, Stout, Buckhead Saloon, Tap, & more…   The 2012 winner?  Ri Ra!  Below are pics from the event.

Duck Rabbit’s End Of Reason

Tomorrow, be at The Fred Bar at 5pm.  Why?  Duck Rabbit.

A rare cask from Duck Rabbit Brewing – “End Of Reason” will be tapping.  Duck Rabbit’s casks are few and far between.

Brewer’s notes on this cask straight from Paul Phillipon:
[quote style=”boxed”]End of Reason is our Baltic Porter, allowed to sour spontaneously in 23 year old Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels; then we dose it with Michigan Montmorency Sour Cherries[/quote]

End of Reason will be served in 11oz pours starting at 5 pm.
