At The State Botanical Garden of Georgia a stump with bright yellow blooms and a few green leaves that someone intentionally placed there. Instant art to perhaps contrast the light and dark.
A flemish Red Ale, served in its proper glass. It has the tastes of cherries and because a portion of the beer ferments in oak barrels it has a sort of sour kick at the end. A delicious treat for your taste buds.
Southern Tier Choklat poured in its proper glass. It is a chocolate stout, and my oh my it tastes just like a melted down chocolate bar. This beer was amazing.
Ommegang Seduction is a Belgian Dark Ale. A dark chocolaty cherry brew, though the chocolate wasn’t as strong as the cherry taste. A clean finish to this medium bodied brew.
Thornbridge Raven Black IPA certainly has that strong hoppy IPA taste. It starts off clean but finishes with a big hop punch on the taste buds.

Out at Market Square, an awesome cover band got people up and out of their chairs dancing and having a good time.
