Break time again from the 10 day challenge. I can’t focus on this damn thing even if you paid me. Which no one does, so we’re good there.
But I was going through my phone pictures and came across the ones of the SweetWater Brewery tour that we took while in Atlanta one weekend. Of course visiting Mecca (IKEA), and enjoying local burgers at Vortex (there’s also some pictures from here, although, they were after a few drinks, and are kind of unnoticeable, but don’t worry. I will explain what you’re sort of looking at).
So we get to Atlanta to do the brewery tour, which is $10 and gets you a glass with 6 tickets to sample. And trust me, this wasn’t some wine tasting amount. They pretty much filled your glass, so you were good and tipsy while walking out. But don’t get too tipsy, because, of course, they did have cops on hand. And you could tell they were just waiting for someone to trip on the stairs (how cruel!) walking out. It was freezing, and we had to wait in line outside to get in. Once in, you are packed in there. Although, all the beer for $10 made it quite worth it. Here are some pics from the actual brewery…
1. The sign over the walk-in cooler that housed all the glorious beer.
2. one of the many kegs…
3. the dank tank…they make so much of one special beer a month, and when it’s gone, it’s gone. a limited edition beer, if you will.
4. and the hippie van. gotta love it.
1. skeleton on a motorcycle.
2. coaster, with my drink peeking in.
3. pic of the menu, you know, for proof.
4. beer cooler. they had lots.
5. horseradish burger. i have a love affair with horseradish. and when you put bacon on it, i might as well have died right there.
All in all, it was a successful Atlanta trip. Came back with a brand new media console (amazingness, can’t even tell it’s IKEA. we reassure it daily that it could totally pass for pottery barn), a new area rug, and some sweet little trinkets that went into the extinct yellow room (pics to come on how that room turned out, because I am pretty proud of it).
And of course, any night that can end with New Orleans jazz music and a Red Bull and vodka is a pretty great night!
