A.B.C. Beverage Tastings

August – December 2017

 Atlas Oyster House is proud to present our next installment of Atlas Beverage Classes (A.B.C.). This semester we will be focusing on handcrafted beers as well as two spirit brands. In addition to the beverage tasting, we will also be featuring small plates, paired with each featured beverage, as prepared by Fish House Chef de Cuisine Jason Hughes and Pastry Chef David Williams.

 A.B.C. will be held outside, on the Deck Bar, on the first Thursday of the month (August through December) and will feature a presenter along with Great Southern Bar Mixologist, Shaun Dixon, discussing the highlighted beverages. Classes will consist of four tastings of beverages with four mini appetizers to complement each tasting. Classes will cover the basics as well as specific information regarding the history of the brewery/distillery and their beers or spirits.

 There are two classes every month, each an hour and a half long. The first class begins promptly at 5:00 p.m. with the second class beginning at 7:00 p.m. Class cost is $20 per person (plus tax and gratuity), per class, which gets each participant one tasting of each of the featured beverages. In addition, throughout the class, participants should be prepared for “pop quizzes,” where we will be giving away T-shirts, beer glassware, gift certificates and more. Seating is limited and reservations are required, so be sure to make yours by emailing maria@goodgrits.com or calling 850-217-2347. The featured themes for each class are as follows:

 October 5: In the Mix: Fresh, Healthy DIY Mixers

A little bit of love goes a long way when creating craft cocktails. Skip the syrups and concentrates, and learn to build familiar cocktails with homemade ingredients from the produce aisle.

  • Margarita with fresh-squeezed coconut sap sweet and sour paired with Gulf shrimp nachos with Brie cream sauce, cumin sour cream and pico de gallo
  • Vodka with homemade tonic paired with blinis with smoked salmon, buttermilk crème fraiche and fresh dill
  • Siesta Thyme featuring homemade thyme tincture paired with a seared lemon-marinated pork tenderloin and Jezebel sauce
  • Dark and Stormy with homemade ginger beer paired with apple strudel with custard sauce
