Monday Night Brewing is celebrating another major milestone this weekend. This year’s annual “Tie One On” marks its seventh anniversary. And the big two-day party will be at The Garage, its beautiful, barely one-year-old second location on the Atlanta BeltLine in the West End.
Musical acts include Kebbi Williams & the Wolfpack, followed by Quiet Hounds. Food trucks will be on premise, including Betty’s Waffle Emporium – sweet and savory waffles created by chef Jen Wesley.
OF NOTE: Saturday is 2-10 p.m. (VIP Experience starts at 12 Noon), and Sunday is 12:30-7p.m. Saturday is 21+, but families are invited on Sunday.
More details and tickets are available at Freshtix.

But in honor of Monday Night’s anniversary, and everyone in need of a little refreshment, one of its somewhat under appreciated seasonal canned offerings, I’m On A Boat, is this week’s Beer Pick.
I’m On A Boat
Monday Night Brewing, Atlanta
Available on draft and in 12-ounce cans
Sort of the sleeper of the newish Monday Night lineup, this golden ale was released as a summer seasonal but seems to be a fixture at both the brewery’s original Westside taproom and the Garage on Atlanta’s Eastside.
At 4.8 percent, with very low bitterness, it’s billed as “easy drinking” and “enjoyable floating on the water, or hanging on shore.” Brewed with Pilsner malt and wheat and finished with fancy Lemondrop hops, it’s the kind of crisp, uncomplicated beer that’s often called crushable, and would make a food-friendly addition to any kind of party or picnic.
Monday night suggests pairing I’m On A boat with grilled chicken, Thai food, or cheddar cheese, which all sounds good. But given the name, and crisp flavor profile, I’d say seafood of all kinds would be great, too.
