Here at Taproom we love gathering people together. If you have an idea for an event you'd like to see us host, please let us know!
U.S. Coffeechamps Preliminaries are coming up Aug 16th, 17th, and 18th and we want to help show off our amazing coffee community! We will be featuring some of Atlanta's best roasters in one cupping. This is your chance to try Atlanta's coffee without driving in traffic. It will be a lot fun, a lot of community, and a lot of coffee!
Teachers, we love and appreciate you. On Monday, August 5th, City of Atlanta teachers start back and DeKalb County teachers welcome their students on the first day of classes. As is our tradition, we’ll be here on this start to the school year, showering all you educators with gratitude… and FREE BEVERAGES.
All teachers and school employees, drop by anytime on Monday 8/5 with your school ID and your drink is on the house. Latte on the way in? Yup. De-stresser on your way home? That too.
This fun freebie is made possible by our wonderful friend and neighbor Ashley Derrick! You can shout out some thanks to her on Instagram at @ashderrickatl. Moby the pup loves when we do this every year! #dogood
It’s mid-summer and you’re running out of ideas to get the kids out of the house… We’ve got your back!
Bring the kiddos by Taproom on Saturday 6/29 and we’ll hand each kid a free drink (non-caffeinated, unsweet but TASTY iced hibiscus tea!) and a grab-bag of fun kids stuff: bubbles, sidewalk chalk, temporary tattoos, and more.
All the kids stuff is FREE! (Of course, adults are encouraged to purchase their own drinks too.)
We’ll make up a few dozen grab bags and hand them out until they run out, but kids will be able to get the free iced hibiscus tea ALL DAY.
We're collaborating with East Pole Coffee Co. and others in the local coffee community to bring you a unique specialty coffee event!
Curious about coffee competitions? Want to be a part of all the excitement? Connect with past volunteers, judges, and competitors to learn more about the different ways you can be involved in the US Coffee Champs. Coffee professionals and non-professionals are encouraged to attend, connect, and get involved!
FREE to attend.
*This event will be hosted at East Pole’s roastery/cafe.
We’re partnering with local organization Wellroot Family Services to collect donations of diapers and baby wipes for local foster families. Drop off any donations Tuesday the 4th through Saturday the 8th and receive any beverage for FREE as a thank you!
In Georgia alone, over 15,000 children are in the foster care system and that number is growing. Wellroot Family Services helps connect these children with nurturing foster families and works with foster families to ensure they have the proper training and support every step of the way. However, at least 40 times a week, Wellroot has to say “No” to children in need because they do not have enough loving, compassionate and nurturing foster families for them. Children escaping abusive or neglectful situations need a safe place to live and be loved.
If you are interested in speaking in person with a Wellroot representative for information on how to become a foster parent or on how to support local foster families, come by Taproom on Friday, June 7th from 8-11am, or on Saturday, June 8th from 9am-12pm. Wellroot will have an information table set up both days, and will also be able to receive financial donations to help train and support foster families.
Join us for a FREE tasting event where we sample and discuss different types of iced coffee. We’ll break open bottles of cold brew (made by other coffee companies), brew a demonstration Japanese-style iced coffee pourover, and pull some nitro iced coffee fresh off draft.
The Saturday of Mother's Day weekend, Taproom will be hosting Amaranthus Paper & Flora for a flower pop-up! This is the perfect chance to pick out some special flowers in person for Mom (or yourself!).
Cherie and Meredith are the mother-daughter duo behind Amaranthus, and they'll be ready all morning with buckets of blooms and big hugs. Using colorful Italian crepe paper, they make each stem and bloom by hand, one petal at a time.
They're on a mission to spread lively color and share lasting joy, and their blooms make the perfect Mother's Day gift -- a bouquet that won't die!
Every month we host a hands-on ceramic crafting time with Atlanta Clay Works, the clay studio located just around the corner from Taproom. They provide the supplies and instruction for the project of the month, you create it and paint it, and they fire it and have it ready for pickup at their studio.
Sign up for the session through their website here: https://www.atlclayworks.org/book-online

Join us for an in-depth coffee brewing session with Jonathan! As a small group, we’ll take time to brew and taste coffee, discuss basics of extraction and technique, and troubleshoot common issues with manually brewing coffee at home. Our “Coffee 101” classes are always free and open to all, and the “201” session is a little more intimate and in-depth - come prepared with any coffee questions or brewing methods or techniques that we don’t normally cover in our intro session.
Tickets are limited and INCLUDE a retail bag of East Pole coffee beans for each attendee!
In this workshop we’ll focus solely on the Fruity Aroma section of the Sensory Lexicon. We’ll be using just our olfactory sense to blindly compare unmarked cups of standardized aroma references (e.g. Sunsweet Amaz!n Prune Juice corresponds to a 3.0-level intensity of dried fruit aroma in the Sensory Lexicon).
The aroma experience is FREE with an Eventbrite ticket reservation. Optional $15 tickets include ANY bag of East Pole Coffee Co. beans.

$12 tickets include the class and a tin of Rishi Tea loose-leaf tea to brew at home.
Our wine guy Lee LaRochelle will lead us in a wine tasting and discussion themed around “Island Wines”.
We’ll be tasting wines from the islands of Santorini (Greece), Sardinia (Italy), Mallorca (Spain), Madeira (Portugal) & Long Island (New York).
Must be 21+ to attend. Purchase tickets on Eventbrite.
Our friends at Rishi Tea heard we've got an awesome community of tea lovers, so they're coming down personally from Milwaukee to lead a class! Join us while Matt, a rep from Rishi Tea, leads us in a tasting and discussion about different types of tea and shares tips for brewing the best cup of tea at home.
Every participant goes home with a retail box of loose leaf tea from Rishi!

Join us as we host Restore Workshop (@restoreworkshop) for a pop-up shop where you can score some locally-made Valentine’s Day gifts.

They will also have a table set up where you can get hand-pressed, customizable magnets that you can order and have made while you grab a cappuccino from the espresso bar. Restore Workshop’s mission is to reuse, recycle, and repurpose Atlanta’s unwanted materials and make home decor that is beautiful, unique, functional and also has a story to tell.
