Join us in downtown Decatur on Saturday, March 16th, for the second-annual ‘Mable-McNally St Paddy’s Procession’ which honors two legendary Decatur Irishmen: Maury Mable, the Pied-Piper of Decatur, and Patrick McNally, the Squire of the Square.
Mable first marched through the streets of Decatur on St. Patrick’s Day in 1895 to celebrate his ancestral homeland and continued to lead what became an annual Decatur parade and tradition for over 50 years.
McNally passed away last year and was a longtime Brick Store regular and Decatur fixture. Said Mike Gallagher of Brick Store Pub, “In our almost 22 year history we can’t think of a single individual that had more of an impact on our staff and community than Patrick McNally. His legacy lives on with his children and grandchildren in our community. And of course, through some of his jokes that continue to make the rounds!”
We’ll depart from the corner of Commerce Dr and Sycamore Pl at Fellini’s (Maury Mable’s residence was just across the street) as fellow Irishman Mike Gallagher leads everyone, bagpiper and all, through the streets of Decatur, finishing at Brick Store Pub where we’ll raise a glass of our 2019 Maury Mable’s Irish Stout. Sláinte!

Three Taverns Selects New Brewmaster
Decatur, GA. For Immediate Release
Three Taverns Brewery today announced that former Avery Brewing Manager and Edge Brewing (Barcelona) Head Brewer, Riley Finnigan, has been selected as Brewmaster and will oversee all brewing operations. Finnigan will assume the new role on February 4th.
“I’m really excited to keep building on what Three Taverns has already established. We have some awesome plans on the horizon and I think it’s going to be a lot of fun to join Atlanta’s beer scene which is in a great spot right now,” said Finnigan.
Finnigan’s hiring concludes a year-long search for the open Brewmaster role after Joran Van Ginderachter left in late 2017 to begin his own brewery. “This is an extremely vital position at the brewery and one we were more than willing to take our time with. Our brewing team is second to none and have worked incredibly hard to continue the commitment to quality and creativity that have been a hallmark of Three Taverns since the very beginning,” said Brian Purcell, CEO and Founder.
Finnigan comes to Three Taverns with a wealth of brewing knowledge and experience. He began homebrewing in college and followed that passion to Mexico working with local ingredients and honing his home brew skills abroad. He then spent 6 years at Avery Brewing in Boulder, CO, working his way through various positions including Brewer and finally Brewhouse Manager. From there he moved to Barcelona, Spain, to assume the Head Brewer position at a new craft brewery. His stout and barrel aged stout recipes both won gold at the Barcelona Beer Festival and under his leadership at Edge Brewing, they were awarded “Brewery of The Year” at the Spanish National Beer Championship.
“Riley comes highly recommended from his peers and employers and we couldn’t be more excited to have his work ethic, experience, and vision at the helm,” said Purcell. “His hiring comes at an important time as plans for our second brewing location, The Imaginarium, accelerate. We are excited to bring some Colorado brewing DNA to Atlanta and can’t wait to see what the future holds for Three Taverns under his leadership.”
Founded in 2013, Three Taverns Brewery is distributed only in Georgia and has experienced significant growth year-over-year, finishing 2018 selling over 9,000 barrels. With their mantra of “Surpass the Ordinary” they have become known for their IPAs, barrel aged stouts, and sours.
Morning Smack makes its triumphant return! One of our most talked-about beers, Morning Smack is an 8% Maple, Bacon, Banana, Coffee Imperial Milk Stout. Available in 4-pack cans at the brewery beginning Saturday, February 9th, and will see a limited release in the market the week of the 11th. You can preorder Morning Smack now for pickup at the brewery via CraftCellr.
Theophan is back and now pouring in The Parlour and available in 4-pack bottles to go! There’s also limited distribution that just hit the market. This year’s edition of Theophan The Recluse pours dark as night with a viscous mouthfeel and rich dark chocolate flavors and subtle banana undertones. Get it before its all gone!
Caleb Van Cleef joined Three Taverns in the spring of 2017 and as a cellarman is an integral part of brewing and production. He’s also been instrumental in conceiving and participating in numerous Imaginarium Project beers. Read more about him below in our "Behind the 3" feature, where we highlight instrumental folks of Three Taverns:
How did you first get into craft beer?
Went into a fake British Pub and asked for a High Life but got a Jai Lai instead. Was like “BRO, wtf, this is terrible. Gimme a Guinness on nitro to cleanse my soiled palate.” Dude riposted with: “How you feel about a lewd Russian mystic whose daughter became a lion tamer in the circus?” I say fantastic. He gives me a pint of Rasputin. Had 9 more. Puked it all up. Hook, line, & stinker..
What do you like most about your job?
It’s a tie between showing up to work for Witching Hour shift and putting the centrifuge on autopilot while I watch from bay door #2 for Cordelia the feral brewery cat to emerge from the sewer for her predawn hunt, and brewing low ABV beers without hops on the test batch system hungover.
Where were you born/did you grow up?
Gulf Of Mexico
Favorite spots in Atlanta?
Rainbow Natural Foods salad bar, Righteous Room, retention ponds
Desert Island beer?
Schlitz Red Beer with stick of cold-smoked caribou sausage. If no caribous on my island, Clausthaler.
When you’re not drinking beer what are you drinking?
Right now: Lambrusco Salamino de Santa Croce or Sotol Pickleback.
Interests/hobbies that are not beer-related
Taxidermy. I’ll stuff anything. Or stuffy poetry.
Last great movie you saw/book you read/album you listened to?
