Scofflaw GOAT IPA debuts this Thursday, settling a bet from Atlanta’s ill-fated Super Bowl.
We all know what happened. Atlanta had a massive lead in this year’s Super Bowl, only to see it disappear by the end of the game. The city’s breweries made a few Super Bowl bets, most notably SweetWater with Boston Beer Company, and Scofflaw with Shipyard Brewing. SweetWater has already paid up. Now it’s Scofflaw’s turn.
Scofflaw GOAT IPA is a “New England Style” IPA, chosen because of where the Patriots call home. Scofflaw’s brewmaster Travis Herman worked with Shipyard’s head brew Joe Rank on the recipe.
The new IPA honors the “Greatest Of All Time” New England Patriots while celebrating the friendly collaboration among these two craft brewers. Deep with never-quit character, G.O.A.T. is an unfiltered IPA with a murky first impression that leads into winning flavors and aromas and a miraculous come-from-behind finish.
Scofflaw GOAT IPA will be available on tap at the Atlanta brewery starting Thursday, March 30th. Scofflaw’s Herman sums up his thoughts on the beer: “For spring days when the Atlanta weather is cool, we’ll use lower pressure in our kegs so Patriots fans can hold on to their glass.”
Hops: Simcoe, Amarillo, Mosaic
Availability: Draft only, limited.

Maine based Shipyard Brewing has closed their Winter Park, Florida brewpub as of August 15th. The location never became profitable. According to the Orlando Sentinel, parking was a huge business killer also. Mug Club benefits will be honored at our Sea Dog Brew Pub locations in Lake Buena Vista and Clearwater.
The pub opened in 2011.
