Monday Night Han Brolo will soon be found in the Atlanta, Georgia brewery’s lineup soon. We’re already in love with the name.

Beer Street Journal recently tried “Brolo” and the first sips just scream juicy. It’s hard not be with a Mosaic, Mandarina Bavaria, and Simcoe hop lineup.
Monday Night Han Brolo will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft this fall.
Style: Pale Ale
Hops: Simcoe, Mosaic, Mandarina Bavaria
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft

Monday Night Blood Orange Blind Pirate is getting a little branding update. The brewery
This rendition of Blind Pirate got its start in the Clip-On Series – a side project for Monday Night. The brewery takes a year round offering and throws it a curve ball. (Note: The series now includes none year-round beers too.)
The first release was Serrano Eye Patch Ale, a peppery spin on the year round English-style IPA. Not long after, Blind Pirate, their double IPA received a little blood orange treatment. As October winds down, you can get Blood Orange Blind Pirate in 12-ounce cans.
Pirates love citrus fruits almost as much as they love blood. If the phrase “you are what you eat” is true, then pirates are blood oranges. If the phrase “you are what you drink” is true, you’re about to be an incredibly delicious, juicy hop bomb of an IPA. We add bits of real blood orange to every beer, so you know it’s good.
Monday Night Blood Orange Blind Pirate is a draft, and 12-ounce can release.
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round.
Release (Cans): October, 2016
Monday Night Dust Bunny is coming this fall, a new hazy India pale ale.
The Atlanta based brewery is making some packaging changes to their lineup, going all-aluminum for their current production facility
As for Monday Night Dust Bunny, the beer will be on par with the hazy, juicy IPAs currently in high demand. The final recipe is currently being finalized.
Availability: 12oz Cans
Debut: Fall, 2017
The Atlanta, Georgia brewery took their year round scotch ale, Drafty Kilt, and aged it in fresh Heaven Hill bourbon barrels to create this medal winning release. Check out the Beer Street Journal video below, with brewery co-founder Jonathan Baker.
What do Scotland and the American South have in common? An appreciation for good booze. But that doesn’t mean they always get along. We put our award-winning Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale in Kentucky bourbon barrels and let them duke it out in the cellar. Who won? You did. Oh, also we did. Again. A GABF Gold Meal. No big deal.
Monday Night Bourbon Barrel Drafty Kilt will be available in 12-ounce cans sometime in November 2017.
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Can Debut: Mid-November, 2017
Our favorite year-round offering from Monday Night Brewing (Atlanta, GA) looks like it will be getting the aluminum treatment in the near future.
The beer we are talking about is Monday Night FuManBrew, a witbier that rocks just a “whisper” of ginger. Refreshing is the go-to word when describing the this beer we’ve come to love (since it’s 2012 debut of course).
As for the lovable folks at Monday Night, it took four years of test batches (dating back to their garage days) to perfect this beer. As good as it is, the love hasn’t been easy to take everywhere. No cans. Looks like that’s about to change.
This Belgian-style wit is an effervescent, easy-drinking wheat beer, brewed with Belgian yeast, German hops, and a whisper of ginger from the Far East. At 5.2%, it’s light enough to quench your thirst in the heat, but flavorful enough to keep you interested.
Monday Night FuManbrew is already available in 12 ounce bottles and draft, year-round. Something important to note as well – the can will sport the new “Independent Craft” label from the Brewers Association.
Monday Night Tears of My Enemies debuts this month, part of the fanciest lineup in the Atlanta brewery’s arsenal – the Black Tie Series.
The Black Tie Series is home to beers like Mom Jeans, Georgian Imperial Stout, and the well-known Bourbon Barrel Drafty Kilt. The week of Valentine’s Day, it will be home to one more -Monday Night Tears of My Enemies.
Does a scotch barrel milk stout do it for you? This “vindictive” milk stout picks up hints of smoke from the 18 year old scotch whisky barrels, and is finished with a touch of both vanilla and locally roasted Batdorf & Bronson coffee. Despite being a fantastic beer, it almost wasn’t even brewed.
Monday Night’s head brewer Peter Kiley saw a beautiful fusion of milk stout and the Macallan 18 year barrels the brewery recently acquired. A milk stout in coffee can be quite good. Throwing that beer into those sexy, hard-to-get scotch barrels? Fan-freaking-tastic. Unfortunately, Kiley found his vision didn’t have some of the powers that be salivating like he was. These barrels don’t show up at your doorstep everyday.
Perhaps even the best idea is met with a little resistance. Kiley pressed forward, and with good reason. Tears of My Enemies is an triumph for the budding brewer. Enemies starts with a burst of coffee and chocolate, and finishes silky, with smokey hints of the sexiness that is Maccallan 18. A bottle of that scotch will set you back nearly $250 dollars. Lucky for you, this creation is less than $20. If you ask us, it’s the best barrel-aged beer Monday Night has ever released. In the end, the name is pretty fitting for Kiley. Nothing worth doing is easy. You won’t find him gloating. You can taste it in ever sip.
There is nothing more sumptuous than the misfortune of your enemies. That dark, smoky taste of revenge takes over as it hits your lips, marching upon your tongue like an army towards certain victory…
Monday Night Tears of My Enemies will be a 22 ounce bottle release, the week of Valentine’s Day 2017. We suggest you track one of these down.

Atlanta, Georgia’s Monday Night Brewing will have some whiskey bragging rights in March. The brewery has teamed up with local American Spirit Works.
This story starts 5 years ago, with Monday Night co-founder Joel Iverson living next door to American Spirit co-founder Charlie Thompson. The businesses were born literally next door to each other. From a fermentation standpoint, brewing and distilling have a lot in common, so Monday NIght’s head brewer Adam Bishop and ASW’s distiller Justin Manglitz had a lot to talk about.
Monday Night Scottish-style Single Malt Whiskey starts with a mash full of cherrywood smoked malt, the same used in their flagship Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale. The mash was transferred 5 miles down the road using the highly scientific “renting a Penske truck” method. ASW distilled the mash and transferred it to white oak quarter casks.
Fortunately, our patience has paid off. Like the mighty Scottish badger, this Scotch-style Whiskey has a pleasant bite and will burrow into your belly with a smooth, slightly sweet, and delightfully smoky finish. – Monday Night Brewing
Monday Night Scottish-style Single Malt Whiskey will be available in 750 milliliter bottles at Atlanta area liquor stores in March.
