Join close friends Eric Johnson and Eddie Russell as they partner with our chef, Jackie Burton to bring you a Wild Heaven Beer Dinner on Tuesday, March 18th. 5 beers, 4 courses, $55. A reception starts at 6:00, with seating at 6:30. Reservations required.
Eric Johnson may be best known to you as founder of Trappeze Pub, home of the best beer selection in Athens. In addition to having a great palate and desire to share beers, Eric loves to make beer. With almost 20 years of brewing experience, Eric is the brewmaster behind the Wild Heaven name. Wild Heaven, co-owned by Nick Purdy of Paste Magazine, is an all-grain brewery out of Decatur. Their process combines European and American techniques to create something really special that we are really lucky to have being made so close by. We really love the motto behind Wild Heaven–serve your neighbor.
As you may remember, Eddie Russell came on as a guest chef with Heirloom this past fall between Chris Rountree’s departure and Jackie Burton’s arrival. We learned a lot from Eddie and really missed having him with us so we decided to have him back for one night only. Eddie has been executive chef at Parish in Atlanta and at Farm 255 in conjunction with Matt Palmerlee. A founding member of the Four Coursemen, Eddie now hosts supper clubs with Coterie and Tie along with Matt Palmerlee and Nancy Palmer. Eddie is currently filming the first season of The Cooking Channel’s Belly Up, a show devoted to the revamping of gastropubs all over the country. We are so excited to get to work with him again.
