Orpheus Brewery Print Party

6 - 9 pm, Thursday, March 16 |
Tour with Six 5 oz. samples and souvenir pint glass

  • Orpheus Brewery is teaming up with SGCI to create a signature "Terminus" draft beer - only available on Thursday night! (Purchase a custom Terminus + Orpheus Growler and bring it with you to fill up!)

  • View the Themed Portfolio, "Orpheus: Never Look Back," enjoy the panorama of Piedmont Park from the deck and grab a bite from a local food truck - all while tasting delicious Orpheus Beer.

The brew-smiths at Orpheus Brewery take full advantage of being in the heart of the ATL by keeping the city at the heart of their brewery. This makes sense – they grew up here. Andy went to high school at Paideia, where he graduated in the same class as Porter Co-owner Molly Gunn (what we now refer to as “The All-Star Brew Class”) who years later introduced him to his future Master Brewer, Jason. With ten years of brewing experience under his belt, Jason is certainly passionate and motivated about his beers, and teeming with excitement to offer the fruits of his labors to the community that fostered his passion. "If I go to look at the Porter's draft list with 45 beers on it, I want what I'm making to be the beer that someone sees on the menu and thinks, 'Oh wow, that sounds exciting.' If it's not, then there's no point in making it. Why do something that somebody else is doing?"

Orpheus' brewing methods are highly influenced by Belgian traditions, while also incorporating a healthy dose of American classics. The proof in the pudding? Their Seasonal IPA's which – albeit hoppy – are brewed with unconventional yeasts and grains that lend flavor profiles found in brews of a different color. The rest of their menu sports a myriad of flavors. Their two staple brews, Atalanta and Lyric Ale, are both saisons, the first, a tart plum concoction, and the second, hopped-up like an American IPA would be. The remainder of their draft list boasts everything from sours to imperial stouts, and plenty of barrel-aged brews and strong ales – brews largely, dare we say, are untapped in the Atlanta markets. We’re also thrilled for their forward-thinking projections –including an increasing number of sours (we're already quite fond of their Serpent Bite) and other curious brews on the horizon. Let’s just say – they’ve got our attention as much as they have our tastebuds.
