New brewery, Second Self, plans to open mid-September on the Westside

The latest craft beer addition will launch with four beers

Good news for the Westside: the build-out at Second Self Beer Company is on track to open mid-September. The forthcoming brewery by Jason Santamaria and Chris Doyle is tucked away on Logan Circle, in between Monday Night and Red Brick. The breweries are so close to each other that Second Self founders hint we might very well see a 5K race with three heady pit stops in the future. But for now, the focus is on completing construction. And brewing beer. Read more...

Barley + Rye: It's bloody hot out so make yourself a beer float

Four pairings that never fail to please

What’s better than crisp, refreshing summertime beer? Beer with ice cream, obviously. Some traditionalists balk at adulterating well-crafted brew, but I say bring on the scoop. Beer floats will certainly change the flavor of your beer, but done right, you can sense new notes, detect deeper flavors, and hopefully, cool off. Read more...

High on the Vine: Whatever happened to Pinot Grigio?

It’s one of the most popular grapes in the world, but you rarely see it on wine lists

I know people drink Pinot Grigio because it’s one of the most popular varietals in the world and comes in jugs at the supermarket, but it’s been a long time since I last spotted a hearty selection of PG on a wine list. Sotto Sotto in Inman Park, for example, cellars the most Italian wine in Atlanta, and they’ve only got two. Slim pickings since Alto Adige in northeastern Italy is PG’s home. Bacchanalia, which has another extensive cellar, also only carries two. Bone’s, which has 20,000 bottles on hand, carries four. Read more...

Paper Plane/Victory Sandwich Bar team to bring new concept to the Westside

Owner Ian Jones says he hopes to open Victory in Inman Park late this summer as well

Ian Jones, proprietor of Victory Sandwich Bar and Paper Plane, is frustrated. Originally, he had a May opening in mind for Victory Sandwich Bar’s new Inman Park location (913 Bernina Avenue, the space formerly home to Park’s Edge). Then he figured July. Now, due to a seemingly endless series of meetings and reviews with the city permitting department, it’s looking more like August or September, he says. Read more...
