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.

Duende – A quality of passion or inspiration.
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.

Creature Comforts Table Beer, formerly known as Epicurious, will return in October.
This release starts with chefs, not brewers. The Creature Comforts team sat down with Ryan Smith, Executive Chef of Atlanta’s Staplehouse and Peter Dale, Executive Chef and Owner of Athens’ The National with the goal of creating a beer to pair with a wide variety of food.
Rather than looking at industry trends for what to brew next, we brewed a beer that best complements drinking with food and friends.
Creature Comforts Table Beer, a foodie’s beer, doesn’t fit any style guidelines according to the brewery. The beer is described as “earthy, floral and soft citrus hop character that is balanced by complex yeast flavors and subtle bitterness on the finish”.
The label artwork for this culinary-inspired can is thanks to the talent of Athens local Bryn Rouse, whose illustrations can be found on her Instagram feed.
Creature Comforts Table Beer will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft in October, 2017.
Style: Not specified
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Limited.
Debut: October, 2016
Latest Return: October, 2017
