IS there anything better than a cold beer in the summertime? Nah. Well, maybe sipping a cold beer while watching live music. A-ha! Southbound’s way ahead of ya, kicking off a new series, Summertime Brews & Tunes, that’s sure to distract you as the heat index rises.
The local brewery is starting the festivities with some folky faves: Waits & Co., Black Water Choir, and Decatur’s Georgia Mountain String Band.
We all know Southbound loves inviting guest brewers in to help dream up new concoctions; this time is no exception, with a dream team consisting of folks from Waits & Co., Foxy Loxy, Rock 106.1’s Work Release Program, Art Rise Savannah, Wild Wing Café, and Trapper Jack. Together, they’ve created a Habanero Rye Ale, a Dubbel (rich and malty, with a little kick to it), an Imperial Cascadian Dark (a.k.a. a “black IPA”—darker and maltier than a typical IPA), with more surprises to come. Admission includes beer samples.
