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!
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
Taproom is turning 5 years old! We'll celebrate again with our annual Rock-Paper-Scissors tournament, temporary tattoos, buttons, giveaways, and of course anniversary cake!

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.
Learn all about tea in this in-depth brewing and tasting class.

Our wine guy Lee LaRochelle will lead us in a wine tasting and discussion themed around “Island Wines”.

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!

Every participant goes home with a retail box of loose leaf tea from Rishi!

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.

Teachers, we love and appreciate you. When City of Atlanta and DeKalb County schools (and everyone else) start classes back on Monday, January 7th, we’ll be here before or after school to shower all you educators with gratitude… and FREE BEVERAGES.
Just show your school ID anytime on Monday 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 @teammoby. Or just admire her cute pup Moby, smile, and think happy thoughts —>

Reps from both companies will guide you through the beer/chocolate pairings that complement and highlight the best of both worlds.
