Atlas Beer Pairings at Emporium Arcade Bar: Things Come Full Circle

A year and a half ago, I pretty much stopped updating this blog, as my time and mental capacity became consumed by the founding of Atlas Brewing Company. However, I've never stopped wanting to come up with more pairings. On Thursday, October 24th, a bunch of pairings are going to be happening in the most awesome way possible. Emporium Arcade Bar (1366 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago) is bringing in 8 of my beers for a night of beer and arcade game pairings. The menu will be:

Golden Axe with Glasgow Kiss Scotch Ale

Super Mario Bros. with Ramsgate Belgian Bitter (Collaboration with Lake Effect Brewing)

Super Off-Road with Atlas Golden Ale

Terminator 2: Judgement Day with Baskerville Cocoa Milk Stout (Collaboration with Letherbee Distillers)

Arkanoid with Hyperion Double IPA

The Simpsons with Diversey Pale Ale

Street Fighter 2: Championship Edition with Rongo Rye IPA

Adams Family Pinball with Phantasmagourdia Pumpkin Ale

The fun starts at 7pm. Hope you can make it out!


  1. Is it a coincidence that my two favorite beers are paired with my two favorite games? or is something more nefarious at work here?

  2. You know what goes well with beer? flash dirt bike games lol love it!

  3. This seems very entertaining day, of games & beer. I wonder how anyone can actually win if the gamer is drunk?

  4. The cocoa stout sounds interesting
