This beer was a massive hit at the 2017 Shelton Brothers Festival in Atlanta. On September 1st, Three Taverns German Chocolate Helm’s Deep will be found in bottles for the first time.
Another strong entry in Beer Street Journal’s highly unofficial “dessert beer” category, Three Taverns German Chocolate Helm’s Deep definitely delivers. The 13% alcohol by volume imperial stout has been aging in Sherry barrels and infused with coconut and espresso coffee. Calories don’t count here.
Infused with espresso and toasted coconut before aging in Sherry barrels, this variant of Helm’s Deep produces flavors of German chocolate cake drizzled with coffee and rich Sherry sweetness.
Three Taverns German Chocolate Helm’s Deep will be available in 750-milliliter bottles at the brewery on September 1st.
Three Taverns Brettannicus debuts Saturday, July 15th.
Following in the footsteps of Fortunatus is Three Taverns Brettannicus, a 100% Brettanomyces fermented farmhouse ale. The brewery used their saison malt base of pilsner, spelt, and wheat, then fermented in stainless steel tanks with Brett.
After primary fermentation, the beer was transferred to red wine barrels to mature. It has been bottle conditioning since late 2016. All in all, Brettannicus has been a year in the making.
…This newest release from our Funk Yard makes no apologies for in your face funk.
Three Taverns Brettannicus will be available in 375 milliliter, corked & caged bottles at the Decatur, Georgia brewery on Saturday. $12 dollars each.
Three Taverns 3 Day IPA is back again this weekend, in cans for the first time.

Three Taverns Pomethus, aka Sour Asylum #5 will be available in cans at the brewery starting today.
The Decatur, Georgia based brewery’s Sour Asylum Series features various Lactobacillus fermented beers, sometimes with spice and fruit additions. Three Taverns Sour Asylum #5’s fruit of choice is pomegranate.
Pomethus is a facto-fermented sour brewed with pilsner and wheat malts and matured on pomegranate. Known to ancient traders as the “fruit of paradise,” the sacred pomegranate’s tartness and touch of sweetness are a delectable delight.
Three Taverns Pomethus was originally released last April in 750 milliliter bottles. 12 ounce cans are available as a to-go option on the tour starting today.
Three Taverns Third Age, a barrel-aged old ale, will debut in January.
The strong ale has been aging in PX Sherry barrels, resulting in a very “intense” flavor experience according to the brewery.
…rich with the aroma and flavor of dark fruit, caramel and the intense complexities of sherry and oak.
Earlier this month, Helm’s Deep, another strong barrel-aged beer was released on a special tour at the brewery.
Three Taverns Third Age made a preview appearance at Atlanta’s Strong Beer Fest. 750 milliliter bottles will be available on a ticket tour at the brewery on January 14th, 2017.
Three Taverns Helm’s Deep will debut in bottles in December.
This imperial stout has been been in the works for a while. Not just from the amount of time it takes to age. The crew at Three Taverns have been aging this monster in various barrels, looking for the perfect barrel compliment. That found it in 8 year old Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. Helm’s Deep is their “thickest and chewiest beer to date” according to brewery founder Brian Purcell.
Long hidden in the deep shadows of eight-year-old bourbon barrels, this full-bodied imperial stout emerges thick as the blackest night. An intestinal dark malt complexity with notes of chocolate and vanilla leads to a labyrinth of flavors saturated in vanilla and oak.
A ticketed event will be held at the brewery on December 17th at 12 pm. Tickets go on sale on Monday, December 12th, $45 dollars each.
Three Taverns Sour Asylum 2 is back in action for the season, and for the first time – cans. This sour is basically Thanksgiving dinner in your mouth.
The Decatur, Georgia based brewery kicked off the Sour Asylum Series with Sour Asylum 1, a Lactobacillus kettle soured beer fermented with the brewery’s house lager yeast.
The second edition took that beer a step further with the addition of cranberry juice, cinnamon and clove. A perfect Thanksgiving sour beer. They call it “Cranberry Sauced” for a reason.
At this point, Three Taverns is at capacity. This is preventing them from putting another release into full production right now. With what little time they have to spare, the brewery is launching a taproom only series of can releases.
Cranberry Sauced is the second in our new series of lacto-fermented sour ales. Spiced with cranberry juice, cinnamon, and clove in the fermenter, and balanced by a pleasing acidity from the lactobacillus strain added to the kettle, this unique beer is your perfect companion to the Thanksgiving season.
Three Taverns Sour Asylum 2 is on tap the brewery starting today, September 1st. You’ll find it on tap in market in October.
Latest Return: November, 2016
