Nappy Roots will headline a concert Saturday night at the Garage, Monday Night Brewing’s new beer barrel-aging and souring facility, complete with tasting room, patio, and orchard, along the Atlanta Beltline.
The band is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.
Tickets for the all-day festival at the new brewery, which borders the Atlanta BeltLine’s new Westside Trail and is located within walking distance from West End MARTA, are $30 and can be purchased at the door.
The band was also twice nominated for a Grammy Award and a Soul Train Award. In 2011, they were nominated for Album of the Year by SEA for “The Pursuit of Nappyness.”
They recently release a new album, “Another 40 Akerz”.
One of the hits from this release is “Front Porch”. In conjunction with the album release, the band has teamed up with Monday Night Brewery to be the exclusive pourer of two Nappy Roots craft beers that will be launched at the festival this Saturday, Sept. 23.
Doors will open at Garage at 2 p.m, with beers, bluegrass, and games all day. Southern rap legends Nappy Roots will headline a concert that Saturday evening.
“Our barrel-aged beers have won major awards at competitions like the Great American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup, and we’ve realized we’re pretty darn good at barrel-aging,” said Monday Night Brewing co-founder Jonathan Baker in a press release. “Unfortunately we simply don’t have the room to do what we want to do at our current brewery.” The Garage is equipped with multiple barrel-aging and souring rooms as well as open fermentation vessels, which ferment beer using flora in the air around them, Baker said.
The Westside Trail will connect neighborhoods such as West End, Adair Park, Gordon White Park, and Washington Park with a pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly trail.
