Hands down the longest beer name I’ve ever put on this blog.
And if it wasn’t for the label art, I would have absolutely no way to figure the reference, since I have sadly never seen the movie Dodgeball.
To be honest, there are many beers that cross my path whose names, or at least the references, I simply do not know. There’s plenty of Old School references out there, and more than enough other ones, but this was easy since the label art for I Know You, You Know You, and I Know You Know That I Know You (Northeast Style, 7% ABV) is literally written on a dodge ball.
Once you land at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, hop on the MARTA Red Line and take it all the way north. You’ll be in Sandy Springs, Georgia.
From there, you’ll have to get a car ride or something to make it out to the original home of Pontoon Brewing. This location was Pontoon’s sole facility since opening in 2017, and until very, very recently was where all Pontoon production had taken place. If you find a can of Pontoon Brewing here in Florida, right when this article is getting published, the odds are very good it was brewed in Sandy Springs.
Hurricane Ian unexpectedly ravaged the west coast of Florida in late September of 2022. Floridians, always being a group that is no stranger to both receiving disasters and mobilizing to help clean up after them, immediately sprang into action.
I found out about this when I got a phone call from Matt Berg at Riptide Brewing in Naples. He had been in communication with Dave Lester, brewmaster at Unseen Creatures in Miami, about a beer that they wanted to create to help raise funds for those that were affected in Lee and Collier counties.
If you ever find yourself in Atlanta, do yourself a favor and hop the MARTA train over to Decatur just to go to The Brick Store Pub.
It is an amazing 130-year-old building that has become a shrine to the joys of proper, and I do mean proper, beer service. Every single beer is meticulously poured and served in the correct glassware. Most of the time that glassware is properly labeled with the correct brewery’s logo.
