Historic Oakland Foundation (HOF) kicked off Oakland Cemetery’s fall special event season with a beer created in partnership with Georgia’s oldest craft brewery, Red Brick Brewing.
Rosemary’s Boneyard Brew, a handcrafted blend of Red Brick’s Casual Session IPA and rosemary harvested from Oakland Cemetery’s grounds, will be available only at Oakland’s special events throughout October. The first casks of Rosemary’s Boneyard Brew were tapped at Oakland’s 36th annual Sunday in the Park Victorian festival on October 4.
“We welcome locals and visitors alike to experience Oakland’s fall events while responsibly enjoying a fresh take on one of Atlanta’s favorite brews,” said Mary Woodlan, HOF director of special events.
Rosemary’s Boneyard Brew will also be available at the ever-popular Capturing the Spirit of Oakland Halloween Tours, October 23 through October 25 and October 29 through October 31. These early evening guided walking tours of Oakland Cemetery bring to life the stories of six Oakland residents through historical reenactments. Capturing the Spirit of Oakland is always a sell-out event, and tickets are available in advance only through www.TicketAlternative.com.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Oakland Cemetery to create this beer,” said Red Brick Brewmaster Garett Lockhart. “It only makes sense that Atlanta’s oldest operating craft brewery should partner with the city’s most historic institution.”
Sunday in the Park and Capturing the Spirit of Oakland are sponsored by Six Feet Under Pub & Fish House, Craft Creation & Design, Tin Lizzy’s Cantina, Paces Properties, Fulton Cotton Mill Lofts, H.M. Patterson & Son – Spring Hill Chapel, General Wholesale Company, Doc Chey’s Noodle House, Republic Social House, and Mezcalitos Cocina & Tequila Bar.
