Creature-Comforts-Cosmik-Debris-7

Creature Comforts Cosmik Debris, a double IPA that first debuted in May 2015 makes a seasonal return this month.

Easily one of the hoppiest releases in the Athens, Georgia based brewery’s lineup, Cosmik Debris has been a fan favorite since day one. In 2016 the brewery canned the imperial IPA, updating the can artwork in 2017. (Above is the 2016 artwork.)

Cosmik Debris has a brilliant aroma from the hop profile that will lessen with age. This beer should be kept cold and consumed as fresh as possible. – Head Brewer David Stein. “

Creature Comforts Cosmic Debris will be available on draft as well as 12-ounce cans in the brewery’s taproom starting March 23rd.

Style: Imperial IPA
Hops: Simcoe, Idaho 7, Mosaic, Cascade Chinook

Creature Comforts Reclaimed Rye finally debuts in cans

Creature Comforts Reclaimed Rye Can

Creature Comforts Reclaimed Rye will (finally) debut in cans year-round on February 17th.

Reclaimed Rye has been a year-round offering by Athens, Georgia brewery basically since they opened their doors. The amber ale is brewed with rye malt and nuanced with a touch of French oak. The brewery teased the artwork two years ago this month, and finally after expansions, building a second production facility, Reclaimed Rye will finally be available in cans.

A uniquely complex and flavorful amber ale. French oak and rye malt lend to a well-rounded body with delicate undertones of toasted bread, spice, and subtle vanilla. We set out to show a new light onto the amber style with this beer and to reclaim it back from the ordinary. Easy to drink with friends at the pub, or just as good as a companion contemplating the stars, Reclaimed Rye is a collection of familiar voices singing a new harmony. 

Creature Comforts Reclaimed Rye joins Athena and Tropicalia, and Bibo Pilsner in their year-round canned lineup. The designs are the brainchild of creative genius Kim Kirby of Young Athenians.

Style: Rye Beer (Oak Aged.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round
Debut (Cans): 2/17/18

5.5% ABV

Creature Comforts Koko Buni is coffee, meets chocolate (and returns this month)

Creature Comforts Koko Buni can

Creature Comforts Koko Buni, the brewery’s coveted milk porter, returns to cans this month. 

One of the first seasonals by the Athens, Georgia based brewery, Creature Comforts Koko Buni is a milk porter, aged on toasted coconut and cocoa nibs  Condor Chocolates and coffee from nearby 1000 Faces. This late fall seasonal has been overwhelmingly popular since its debut a few years ago. We’ve seen fistfights over Koko cans at retailers.

“We decided not to be traditional with the beer and add some ingredients that play well with the already roasty and chocolatey flavors of darker beers.” -Co-Founder and Head Brewer David Stein.

Coffee lovers will find a home here.  Koko Buni starts heavy on the 1000 Faces coffee, and turns chocolatey mid-sip, finishing with a wisp of coconut. (Perhaps a bit less coconut compared to past releases.)

Creature Comforts Koko Buni will be a seasonal draft and 12-ounce can offering.

Style: Milk Porter (w/ Cocoa Nibs, Coffee, Toasted Coconut, Lactose.)
Availability: Draft, 12oz Cans
Distribution: Athens & Atlanta, Georgia (Very Limited)
Latest Return: November 2016

6.8% ABV
