The Wing Cafe & Tap House in Marietta is hosting a holiday beer tasting on 12/12 starting at 8PM.

Friday, 12/13: Mezcalito’s Grant Park Heaven & Hell Tequila and Beer Pairing, 5PM til close.
Our Grant Park neighbors at Mezcalito’s are offering a helluva deal for Friday the 13th – a $10 flight of two special tequila shots paired with a complimentary Let There Be Light ‘chaser’. Try the beer for free and if you like it, buy a pint and keep the glass (psst, they’ll be doing special pricing for one night only!).
…At the fine establishments listed below, that’s where! To ensure enjoyment at said locations, be sure to call ahead to see if they have the kegs on – some may have already gone through their kegs (tell ‘em to order more!) or some may have them on deck untapped. We’ll continue to update this list as the orders keep flooding in. Cheers to holiday beers, neighbors!

Wild Heaven Craft Beers is thrilled to officially announce plans to build our long-awaited production brewery in Avondale Estates, commencing construction in the coming weeks! This exciting news comes on the heels of reaching two key milestones: completion of full funding for our construction and the transition of “Consulting” Brewmaster Eric Johnson’s daily focus from Trappeze, the globally renowned Athens beer bar he founded in 2007, to his role as Wild Heaven’s brewmaster.
The Wild Heaven brewery is located in Avondale Estates, seven miles east of downtown Atlanta and one mile from the beloved Decatur Square where Wild Heaven launched just over three years ago in the Belgian Bar at the Brick Store Pub. Our 8000 square foot facility will be outfitted with a 30-barrel brewing system that has quite a history in Georgia brewing, having served both SweetWater Brewing and Terrapin Brewing.
A tasting room featuring all of Wild Heaven’s beers and new one-off creations will be the centerpiece of the new space. The Pearly Gates, Eric’s one-of-a-kind pilot brewing system will move from his back yard in Winterville, Georgia to a prime spot adjacent to the main system, allowing the tasting room to feature a constant rotation of experimental and exciting beers that won’t be available anywhere else.
Choate Construction has been selected as the general contractor for the project.
Fans of Wild Heaven will be able to keep track of the project with updates, photo galleries, a time-lapse camera on the Wild Heaven site and frequent social media updates on Twitter @BeerWildHeaven and Facebook at facebook.com/wildheaven.
Nick and Eric invite fans to toast this news with them at the Wild Heaven tent at Hotoberfest in Atlanta on Saturday.
One note: You may notice in the image above, and in some of our previous branding, that our location is listed as “Decatur” – since then, the city limit lines have moved and we officially and proudly call Avondale Estates home.
Howdy, neighbors! So. About these past few months…summer turned out to be a total wash, pun intended.

Festivals, beer dinners, a whole month of winning at all Beer Growler locations, just to name a few choice things.
