Raise your glass — and your CheeseSteaks — and toast to Fu ManBrew, the latest from Monday Night Brewing. Because weekends are overrated... but boiled peanuts and beer ice cream floats are definitely not.
Warm, juicy CheeseSteaks and a cold brew? The perfect storm. That's why we were beside ourselves when our favorite little CheeseSteak joint acquired a fancy-pants liquor license just a couple months ago. The latest addition to the taps ain't just any old ale, either. It was only a month or so ago when the boys at Monday Night Brewing rolled out their latest craft concoction, the ginger-infused wit known around town as the Fu ManBrew. Well, consider this the brew's debutante ball.
Woody's is showing their local love by throwing Fu ManBrew a little welcome-to-the-A soiree, complete with Woody's Famous CheeseSteaks, brand-new house boiled peanuts, and a little somethin' called a Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale Ice Cream Float. Curiosity piqued? Thought so. It's perhaps the most genius usage of ice cream we've seen thus far: scooped and plopped into a cold Drafty Kilt or Scotch Ale to make a dessert that'll bring glee to both the discerning grown-up and the sugar-crazed little kid in you.
Monday Night Brewing and Woody's are really a match made in heaven — one's been in Atlanta for a few years, the other a few decades, but both are homegrown right here in the A, and both are beloved by many. The hungry have flocked in droves to the wooden shack on Monroe for a late-night cheese meat fix since Gerald Ford was in office. And even though MNB is relatively new to the scene, their brews have already won them a rock-solid following among the thirsty, craft-loving crowd. Not to mention the fact that a cold, crispy, gingery Fu ManBrew pairs up quite perfectly with a warm, fresh-baked bun stuffed with seasoned beef and melty cheese. And ice cream.
It's all going down on — when else? — a Monday night, thanks to the brewing company's rallying cry: weekends are overrated. Hey, ain't no reason you can't have a Monday Funday. Swing by the CheeseSteak joint for a cold brew, a CheeseSteak or Italian Sausage, a taste of Woody's brand-new Boiled Nuts, one of those aforementioned Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale Ice Cream Floats, and a MNB glass to take home with you.... made especially for toasting to Mondays. Because Sundays are so yesterday.
