Transit + Beer = Awesome.
One day, Metro Man got on the train, apparently DC’s green line, and saw a lone, empty little can of Heineken. So he decided to write a post based on what beers could be the beer of each Metro line.
The next day, I read his post. And totally decided to steal the brilliant idea and come up with MARTA’s own signature beers. Local beers for local transit. So I give you my list of what beer you should be having when MARTA pubcrawling it.
Red Line: Atlanta Brewing Company’s Red Brick Ale
(alternate choice – Strawberry Colada or Cinnamon Whipahol. If you don’t know, I’m sorry. It’s awesome.)
Gold Line: Terrapin’s Golden Ale
(alternate choice: Red Brick Blonde.)
Blue Line: Sweetwater Blue
(alternate choice: anyone have a suggestion?)
Green Line: Sweetwater 420
(*ahem* green packaging, Earth Day, yada yada. I couldn’t find a local beer with a green name. Therefore, I suggest we change the name of the green line. I mean, it was pretty easy changing the “yellow” line. Get some stickers and we’re all good. So I would like to throw out the following new names: Brown for Sweetwater’s Georgia Brown or Red Brick Brown Ale; Orange for Terrapin’s Pumpkinfest; Purple for Red Brick Grape Ape; Black for the Red Brick Black Brick; or my personal favorite, Peach for Red Brick Peachtree Pale Ale. Peachtree + Beer + MARTA = Best fricking idea I’ve ever had. MARTA marketing can thank me later.)
So remember folks, your best designated driver is MARTA. Cheaper than a cab and won’t get mad at you when it didn’t get to drink, too.
