It’s hard to believe, but there are people out there who don’t the Super Bowl happens on Sunday in Miami. I was sitting at a brewery earlier this week and I overheard a guest learn for the first time the game was upon us and even who the teams were.

We’re fully aware the San Francisco 49ers are facing the Kansas City Chiefs. What we don’t know is what you’re doing during the game.

If you haven’t already locked up your plans at a house party or paid for a spot at a restaurant’s Super Bowl party, allow me to offer a few brewery options for watching the big game.

  • Tucker Brewing Company is offering $8.99 6-packs all day Saturday and Sunday to stock up for your party.
  • Three Taverns has $2 off all packaged beer and $10 each case, with two exclusions on the case deal.
  • Good Word Brewing is hosting their third annual “Superb Owl,” a $75 all-you-can-drink-and-eat watch party.
  • Orpheus Brewing is hosting Souperbowl 2020, a competition for the Best Soup in Atlanta. For $15 you get all the soup you can taste and two 5-ounce beer pours.
  • Monday Night Brewing is giving away a special themed football glass with every purchase of Lay Low, their new low-calorie IPA.
  • New Realm is offering both to-go options and a $1,500 private event, food and drink package for the game.
  • Line Creek Brewing is welcoming folks to come tailgate with them and even releasing a special beer for the occasion, an Irish Red Ale called Corkonian.

NEW BREWERY UPDATES…

6S Brewing and Tasting Room is set to open “within the next couple of months,” owner and founder Robb Watson said. He gave me an update on some of the beers coming. They’ll offer core beers in the following styles: IPA, stout, porter, Saison, and pale ale, and will even cater to people drinking gluten free.

When their taproom opens it’ll have 16 taps flowing and will “provide varieties across all styles.”

Monkey Wrench Brewing has been holding soft opening hours on the weekends with six beers flowing. Joe Dreher, who handles creative and marketing for the brewery, says they’ll be “wrenching it up a notch in February or early March.”

Craig Mycoskie, of Round Trip Brewing, has recently been working with his equipment supplier and said delivery of brewhouse equipment and tanks “should be early-mid March.”

In terms of style, Mycoskie said they’ll focus on classic examples “while pushing the boundaries of German styles and ingredients.” He hasn’t finalized the beer lineup yet, but said we can expect German-style beers to be theme in a majority of what Round Trip does.

Outrun Brewing is close to opening within walking distance of Stone Mountain Park. "Right now we're projecting mid-to-late March,” said brewery co-owner and founder Josh Miller. “It depends on licensing and how quickly we can get all our equipment hooked up. We're still waiting on a few things, but if we brew in mid-February we'll be open in mid-March."

Miller calls the future operation a “Mom and Pop” place where he and co-owner Ryan Silva will be “brewing the beer and serving the beer." Their location will be approximately 2,300 square feet with a 250 square foot tap station on property in a building in front. There will also be a lot of outdoor seating. Guests can grab food from a pizza place across the street, a new BBQ spot opening soon around the corner or occasional food trucks at the brewery.

Outrun’s five-barrel will push out 10 beer max on draft in the taproom and Miller said they’ll launch with five different beer styles. The rough lineup is still a work in progress, but he guessed lagers and lower-alcohol IPAs would be in the mix.
