Monday Night & American Spirit Works Whiskey is back on shelves

Monday Night Whiskey

Atlanta, Georgia’s Monday Night Brewing will have some whiskey bragging rights to go alongside their beer lineup. The brewery has an ongoing collaboration with 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 is available in 750-milliliter bottles at Atlanta area liquor stores again in late-August and September.

Pair with Easy Mac & lonely nights. Monday Night Dinner For One starts September

Monday Night Dinner For One

Monday Night Dinner For One debuts on September 1st. A lonely beer for one.

The Atlanta based brewery calls this a “multigrain India pale ale”, as it’s brewed with a mix of torrified wheat and spelt. The difference? Spelt is also called “hulled wheat”, a subspecies of common wheat. Torrified wheat refers to the process the wheat is treated with. In this case – a high-temperature heat treatment that breaks down the structure of the grain.

Both are used in this case for a hazy effect in the IPA. Because -these days it’s all about haze.

A rustic, smooth IPA that’s the perfect pair for ramen noodles, tv dinners and boxed mac and cheese.

Monday Night Dinner For One will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft, starting at 12 noon on September 1st.

Style: IPA
Hops: Mosaic, Motueka, Hallertau Blanc
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: 9/1/18
