University of Georgia honeybees & Creature Comforts Common Things

Creature Comforts Common Things

Creature Comforts Common Things debuts this month, a collaboration with the University of Georgia Honeybee program.

Common Things is a mixed culture saison brewed with local honey. Creature Comforts worked with the University of Georgia honeybee program. (The original brewery is located just blocks from the campus.)

This new saison is fermented with the honey in stainless steel tanks before being refermented in bottles.

“We’ve learned a lot about ways to use honey through previous projects and putting it in a light, tart, refreshing beer felt like the next progression. We’re also excited to have another opportunity to showcase locally sourced ingredients in our beer.” –  Blake Tyers, Wood Cellar, and Specialty Brand Manager

Creature Comforts Common Things will be available at the brewery on August 25th in 750-milliliter bottles. The label art was created by staff member Melissa Merrill.

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Honey.)

Creature Comforts Automatic Pale hits this market this week

Creature Comforts Automatic Pale Ale Can

Creature Comforts Automatic Pale Ale returns to cans again this August.

Automatic’ is a hop-forward pale ale, brewed with Mosaic and Crystal hops. If you love that “dank” hop smell and flavor, you will love this beer. Automatic is pale ale on steroids.

“Automatic is meant to be light, refreshing and quite drinkable without falling into the common pitfall of ending up too thin, watery or insipid. No color malts were used, however, the relatively full mouthfeel is enough to support this heavily hopped beer,” said Co-Founder and Brewmaster Adam Beauchamp.”

Local Athens artist Michelle Fontaine created the label for Creature Comforts Automatic Pale Ale. Fontaine took inspiration from 1950’s pop culture as well as the 1940’s Chevy dealership that once occupied the brewery’s building.

You might recognize the phrase “Automatic for the People” emblazoned on the can, especially if you are a REM fan. The album named was derived from legendary Athens, Georgia eatery, Weaver D’s. The southern, soul food eatery is a city staple.

Creature Comforts Automatic Pale Ale is already available on draft at the brewery in Athens. Cans will return to distribution the week of August 20th.

Style: Pale Ale
Hops: Mosaic, Crystal

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Seasonal.
Latest Return: Week of August 20th, 2018

Firestone Walker teams up with Creature Comforts, creates ‘Mother’s Milk’

Firestone Walker Mother's Milk

Firestone Walker debuts a new collaboration this weekend with Athens, Georgia based Creature Comforts in Paso Robles, California.

Every beer collaboration is born out of friendship and mutual respect for one another’s brewing passions. In this case, the fermented love spans 2,000 miles. Introducing Firestone Walker / Creature Comforts Mother’s Milk.

The base beer is a milk stout that has been aging for nearly a year in rye whiskey barrels – a very intentional move. According to Eric Ponce, Firestone Walker’s barrel program manager, the sweetness of bourbon barrels would have been too cloying. “We designed the base beer with the intent of aging it in rye whiskey barrels—we thought it would be the perfect marriage. The dash of salt just makes everything pop on the palate,” he explains in a recent press release.

Mother’s Milk will be available to all attendees of this weekend’s Firestone Walker Invitational. 12-ounce bottles will be available at the brewery on June 2nd.

Style: Milk Stout (w/ Sea Salt. Lactose. Barrel Aged. Rye Whiskey.)
Hops:
Malts: Two-Row, Munich, Chocolate, Franco-Belges Kiln Coffee, Crystal 45, Oats

Availability: 12oz Bottles. Limited Release
Debut: 6/2/18

11.6% ABV
