Hot on the tails of the newest 5 Seasons location, Hop City Beer is opening in the Brickworks, that new complex over on the West End of the city. Though I’m not a beer fan by any stretch of the imagination (the other day, I had my first one in 5 years), I can’t wait to see what this place packs.
On Thursday, April 2 (that’s tomorrow), there is a grand opening celebration. The store touts itself as “Atlanta’s first craft beer specialty store.” Basically, this is a liquor store without the liquor … and a WHOLE HECK of a lot more beer. According to the email they sent out, they will stock over 1,000 flavors of beer and more than 600 types of wine. For those who like to get adventurous, they also carry home brewing equipment.
As for the party itself – there will be a plethora of free beer samples, live music, and some grub. It runs from 6-9 and is free to everyone. CL ran a more in depth preview on the 30th. As of this writing, their website is not up.
