    I have realized lately that a lot of the Atlanta area beer drinkers do not seem to know about the Ale Atlanta group. It has been around for quite some time and meets at 5 Seasons West on the first Thursday of each month.

    For those of us on the North side of town, we recently started a group we are calling Ale Alpharetta since it meets at the 5 Seasons North location in Alpharetta. The meetings for it are on the 3rd Thursday of each month.

    Everyone is welcome at each one assuming you bring beer to share with the group. Some people bring homebrew while others bring commercial beers. You just need to bring something to share. There is no kind of dues or membership fee for either, it is completely free and open to anyone that shows up. Since they are at a place of business, it is suggested that you leave some sort of tip for the wait staff that cleans up after us even if you do not buy something from 5 Seasons.

    There are reminders for each meeting that are sent out on the Atlanta beer-talk mailing list. You can sign up for that list at atlantabeer.com. Signing up for the list is particular important for the Ale Atlanta meetings since there is usually a style theme each month.

    I just wanted to post info about the gatherings since it surprised me recently how many people that are into beer locally do not seem to know about them.

    There is also a Bottle Share the First Sunday of every month at 2pm at the Wrecking Bar in Little 5 Points.

    I forgot about that one until I saw the reminder for it on the beer-talk mailing list.

    I haven't seen an email about it lately. So probably not.

    Since I missed this year's HMOG (for a family gathering with good beer), if the stars align properly, I might be able to make one of the Ale Alpharetta meetings. Calendar marked.

    Since this got bumped up again, and I just sent out the email for the June Ale Alpharetta meeting, I thought I would mention it here as well in case people had not signed up for the beer-talk list. This months meeting will be this Thursday at 7:30 pm at 5 Seasons North. If anyone has any questions, send me a beer mail. If you want to sign up just put your name on this list and bring some beer with you to share on Thursday. No need to list the beers you are bringing unless you want to for vertical or comparison purposes.

    Just so you know, these meetings are not like HMOG. They are much smaller and while we have had some great beers show up, people typically do not dig to the bottom of their cellar for these events.
