Believe it or not, beer has been around for thousands and thousands of years. It far predates coffee, and many of the traditions around beer have been passed down intact since oldest antiquity. At different times, brewing beer was considered a feminine or masculine art. Medieval monks were often dedicated to the craft.

After all this time, the resurgence in craft brewing has shown that there's still more to learn when it comes to beer. Homes for sale in Atlanta benefit from a vigorous brewing culture with lots of local startups. Some have become known around the United States, while others remain among the area's best-kept secret.

Tips for the Perfect Homemade Bread - JYB Realty

With so many people staying at home during the pandemic, cooking has become a popular activity. Trying out new recipes and brushing up on cooking skills has created a surge of new cooks in the kitchen. At Josey Young & Brady Realty, our real estate agents are noticing a renewed interest in Atlanta homes for sale that offer well-equipped, functional kitchens.

One popular cooking trend that's making a comeback is bread baking. Even people with little cooking experience are baking homemade loaves of wheat, sourdough, and gluten-free bread from scratch. All you need is a few simple ingredients and a little patience. Here are 5 tips for baking the perfect homemade bread for your family:

  1. Use the Right Ingredients
    When baking bread, you only need four main ingredients: flour, water, yeast, and salt. You can use white flour or wheat flour, as well as dry or wet yeast. If you're making sourdough bread, you don't need commercial yeast. You can use a sourdough starter, a live fermented culture, which acts as a natural leavening agent. All of these ingredients can be found in local grocery stores.

Want to partake in some luck o' the Irish as you tour Atlanta homes for sale? Here's what you should know to join in the fun and festivities on Saturday, March 16.

History of the St. Patrick's Day Parade

In 1858, the Hibernian Benevolent Society held Atlanta's first St. Patrick's Day parade to honor the rich heritage of Irish immigrants in the city. Specific recognition was given to Father Thomas O'Reilly and the Hibernian Rifles, who played an important role in Atlanta during the Civil War.

Father O'Reilly earned respect tending to the religious needs of both Union and Confederate soldiers. When General William Sherman captured Atlanta, O'Reilly led a group that ultimately convinced Sherman to spare City Hall, the courthouse, and five churches, including O'Reilly's own Immaculate Conception.

The Hibernian Rifles, named after a nationalist militia group in Ireland, also stood up against Sherman's "scorched earth" campaign. In gratitude, Oakland Cemetery set aside a plot dedicated to the Hibernian Rifles and members of the HBS.

Atlanta Chattahoochee River Kayaking
Starting as a mere trickle in the Appalachian Mountains of North Georgia, the Chattahoochee River descends nearly 2,400 feet in its first hundred miles alone, becoming a might torrent by the time it empties into Lake Seminole, 434 miles from its headwaters. It meanders right through the Atlanta city limits along the way, offering what our real estate agents consider to be some of the best paddling water in the state. 

Chattahoochee River Paddling

The Chattahoochee River is, almost without exception, a very easy river to navigate by canoe or kayak. It rolls along gently between its banks, with an average water speed of around 3 miles per hour, through fields, forests, and farmlands. Only in spring, when runoff from the mountains causes the river to swell, does paddling become more of a challenge. But throughout summer and fall, the Chattahoochee is one of the most reliably calm paddling waters in the Southeast.
