Wild Heaven Eschaton Finally Bottled

Wild Heaven Eschaton has finally arrived in bottles. The Belgian-style quadrupel as been a bottle hopeful since its debut in 2011.

Eschaton is a one-of-a-kind oaked all-malt Quadrupel (or “Belgian Strong Dark” if you prefer) that abounds with dark fruit and pit fruit flavors as well as earthy spiciness. Vanilla oak and warm viniferous notes assert themselves as the beer warms to reveal additional layers of delicious complexity.

“Eschaton” is greek for the end of the world, or climax of history. Wild Heaven Eschaton is available in 12oz bottles, and draft while the world goes on. (Maybe a little bit after too.)

The brewery is also introducing cans in 2015.

Style Belgian-style Quadrupel (Aged on Pinot Noir Oak Chips)
Availability: 12oz bottles (New), Draft.  Year-round.

10.5% ABV

Wild Heaven Let There Be Light Bottled

Wild Heaven Let There Be Light Bottles

Wild Heaven Craft Beers (Avondale Estates, GA) has bottled Let There Be Light for the first time.

The brewery is getting the bottling line up and running at the newly built location, and has begun packaging their mainstays including, Let There Be Light, Invocation, and Ode to Mercy.

Let There Be Light! was designed to be the brewery’s flagship low ABV/session beer.

Starting with both barley and wheat, we added two rare hops—Nelson Sauvin and Sorachi Ace—along with a bit of orange peel, to create a complex beer with a citrus note that will change the way you think about “light” beer.

Wild Heaven Let There Be Light is available year round on draft and soon, 12oz bottles.

Style: Pale Ale
Availability: Draft, 12oz bottles (New)

4.7% ABV, 30 IBUs

Beer Street Journal Video: Brewing a Tomato Saison with Wild Heaven

Beer Street Journal joined Wild Heaven Craft Beers brewmaster Eric Johnson on a backyard brew day in rural Winterville, Georgia. This 50 gallon setup is the birthplace of Wild Heaven. This wasn’t any old pale ale brew day, we were on a special mission. Brew a special tomato based beer for JCT Kitchen’s Attack of the Killer Tomatoes Festival.

Honestly, I can’t think of single beer brewed with tomatoes. Neither could Eric, so when he went looking around brewers forums, not a lot of people thought it was a good idea. This is something you need to know about Eric Johnson. You can’t tell him no. For this first edition, the base beer is White Blackbird , an upcoming saison release by the brewery. Heirloom tomatoes were selected to add to the mash, then spiced with white peppercorns. For added depth, the saison was aged on cacao nibs and  Madeira oak.

If you are in Atlanta, you’ll get a shot this brew this weekend.

Style: Saison (w/ Tomatoes, White Peppercorns, Cacao Nibs, Oak Aged. Madeira)
Availability: Draft only. Festival Limited

7.4% ABV
