Monday Night Bourbon Barrel Drafty Kilt, part of the brewery’s special Black Tie Series, is now available in cans for the first time.

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.

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.

Joran Van Ginderachter departs Three Taverns for Monday Night; future brewery

Joran Van Ginderachter, brewmaster of Three Taverns Craft Brewery, has parted ways his first American brewery home. He will now assume a brewer role with Atlanta’s Monday Night Brewing.

‘Van Ginderachter studied Chemistry at the University of Ghent before interning with his uncle Peter Bouckaert, a legend at U.S. based New Belgium, and now Purpose Brewing and Cellars in Fort Collins, Colorado. At the close of his internship, Joran returned to Belgium, ultimately co-founding Brouwers Verzet in 2011. The creativity and passion in the American industry brought Joran to Three Taverns, where he has been overseeing the day to day operations, as well as creating the brewery’s wild ale program.

Unfortunately, not everything goes as planned. For reasons not immediately disclosed, Joran Van Ginderachter has departed Three Taverns. Just a few miles away, Monday Night Brewing has stepped in to help.

Peter Kiley, head brewer at Monday Night tells Beer Street Journal that this move is intended to keep extraordinary talent in Georgia. “We know business can be complicated sometimes. Joran is a good friend to us, and an integral part of the brewing community in Georgia,” Kiley said.

This move over to Monday Night is a temporary one. Joran and close friends Shawn Bainbridge and Tim Kilic
will open Halfway Crooks Brewing and Blending in Atlanta in 2018. Expect everything from pilsners to saisons and wild ales from the trio.

In the meantime, don’t be surprised if you see Van Ginderachter brewing at Monday Night or running around the brewery’s new “Garage” location.

“Thanks to a must needed change in Georgia beer laws, the state is poised for growth. We want to keep talent like Joran’s here with us, and we are extremely excited. Even if it’s just for a little while,” said Kiley.

In an interesting, and unrelated twist, brewer Adam Bishop has parted ways with Monday Night. Co-founder Jonathan Baker tells Beer Street Journal that his departure is unrelated to the arrival of Joran.

“It’s just really weird timing,” said Baker.

Branding Update: Monday Night Blood Orange Blind Pirate

Monday NIght Blind Pirate can

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.

Style: Imperial IPA (w/ Blood Orange)
Hops: Columbus, Cascade, Magnum
Malts: 2 Row, Wheat, Caramel

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round.
Release (Cans): October, 2016
