Terrapin Tart Cherry Wake-n-Bake to join Special Reserve Series

Terrapin Tart Cherry Wake-n-Bake

Terrapin Tart Cherry Wake-n-Bake, a new entry in the brewery’s Special Reserve Series.

The base beer is an oatmeal imperial stout, brewed with a special coffee blend from Athen’s, Georgia roaster Jittery Joes. (The coffee blend is actually available for purchase as well.)  The brewery has spiked the stout with Montmorency cherry juice.

When life gives us cherries, we make “Tart Cherry W-n-B.” Brewed with real Montmorency cherry juice from the USA, and freshly roasted “Wake and Bake” coffee from Jittery Joe’s, this version of our classic Coffee Oatmeal Stout takes on an impeccable fruit forward dimension.

Other editions of Wake-n-Bake include Cinnamon Roll’d, that has been released a few times in the past, as well as French Toast W-n-B.  This year, the brewery will can the base Wake-n-Bake for the first time.

Terrapin Tart Cherry Wake-n-Bake will be a 22 ounce bottle and draft release in December, 2016.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Coffee. Cherries.)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft. Limited Release.
Debut: December, 2016

Three Taverns Hoplicity is next up in cans

Three Taverns Hoplicity

Three Taverns Hoplicity will be the next canned offering by the Decatur, Georgia brewery

Available on draft in the past, Three Taverns Hoplicity is an imperial IPA. Besides beer, music is a big love of founder Brian Purcell. Miles Davis classic album Boplicity inspired not only the name of this dank offering, but the feeling of improvisation that brought this beer to light.

Hoplicity carefully crafts a steady backbeat of alpha acids and transitioning layers of resinous, citrus, and tropical hops into a rich textured ensemble. This is our hoppiest beer and promises to leave your palate stunned, erratic, and eager for more.

Three Taverns Hoplicity will be a seasonal 12 ounce can and draft release.

Style: Imperial IPA
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: October, 2016

9% ABV, 85 IBUs

Monday Night Dad Bod Black Saison coming to “Clip On” series

Monday Night Dad Bod Stock

Monday Night Dad Bod Black Saison will join the brewery’s “Clip-On” Series in October.

In September of 2015, The Atlanta, Georgia based brewery debuted a one-off series they call the  “Clip-On Series.” Beers featuring in the lineup are fun reinventions of core Monday Night releases. Examples include: Cinnamon Cocoa Drafty Kilt, and Blood Orange Blind Pirate.

Monday Night Dad Bod is a black saison, and incidentally, not a spin on a core beer like the releases mentioned above. The brewery touts this release as “Dark, herbal, and super smooth,” thanks to Keemun black tea used in the brewing process.

Dad Bod isn’t just a beer, it’s a state of mind. Dad Bod means working out just enough not to have to buy new pants, and spending the rest of the time working on your drinking muscles. Our dark saison has a mind nose with hints of espresso and citrus. A peppery flavor gives this down-to-earth beer the edge needed to attract a mate and nothing more.

Monday Night Dad Bod Black Saison will be a 12 ounce bottle and draft offering.

Style: Saison
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. One-off release.
Debut: October, 2016

6% ABV

Creature Comforts Epicurious, a chef collaboration

creature-comforts-teaser

Creature Comforts Epicurious is the next seasonal by the Athens, Georgia based brewery.

This release starts with chefs, not brewers. The Creature Comforts team sat down with various regional chefs to create a beer to pair with a wide variety of food.

Rather than looking at industry trends for what to brew next, we brewed a beer that best complements drinking with food and friends.

Creature Comforts Epicurious, a foodie’s beer, doesn’t fit any style guidelines according to the brewery. The beer is described as “earthy, floral and soft citrus hop character that is balanced by complex yeast flavors and subtle bitterness on the finish”.

The label artwork for this future can is thanks to the talent of Athens local Bryn Rouse, who’s illustrations can be found on her Instagram feedEpicurious will be available in both the Athens and Atlanta markets in October, 2016

Style: Not specified
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Limited.
Debut: October, 2016

Green Flash Ochre Frumento, the brewery’s booziest ever

Green Flash Ochre Frumento

Green Flash Ochre Frumento will join the brewery’s Barrelmaster Reserve Series on September 17th. Incidentally, the strongest beer the brewery’s has ever released.

The base of Green Flash Ochre Frumento is a barleywine, that has aged a total of 6 years in both bourbon and brandy barrels. The final alcohol by volume is a whopping 17.5%, which is officially the strongest beer the San Diego based brewery has ever released.

 It pours a deep brown and presents an aroma that is sharp and spirit-barrel forward. Prominent flavors of toffee and caramel envelop the palate, and supporting notes of ripened stone fruits with nutty complexity unfold through the finish.

The first release in the series sold out in hours – Lustrous Frumento with Coffee.

There are only 600 bottles of Green Flash Ochre Frumento available. Find it at the brewery’s Cellar 3 Facility on Saturday, September 17th.

Style: American Strong Ales (Barrel Aged. Bourbon. Brandy.)
Availability: 750m Bottles. Limited

Three Taverns Inceptus: The second appearance

Three Taverns Inceptus Bottle

Three Taverns Inceptus, will make a second appearance this month. This beer was the Decatur, Georgia based brewery’s first ever sour ale release last year.

Three Taverns Inceptus has a story, as every beer does, but this one is a little different. On the rare occasion Atlanta gets snow, it grinds the city to a complete halt. Joran Van Ginderachter, Three Tavern’s brewmaster, went to work. He’s Belgian. He loves beer. That’s what he does.

As it happened, Joran walked into the brewery that day with an ear-to-ear grin. The crisp, frigid air, he announced, was clean and healthy. In sum, perfect conditions for open fermentation, a process by which wild yeast is “caught” from the air instead of cultivated.

So the brewers transferred wort into a mini-fermenter and placed it outside, exposed to the air. Over the next few days they observed the signs of spontaneous fermentation and were rewarded with a wild yeast strain that literally arrived with the wind.

In 2016, a second edition has arisen, born from the snowy day and oak aging that is now apart of both the brewery and Atlanta’s beer history.

Three Taverns Inceptus is aged in North Georgian wine barrels. Available in 12.7 ounce bottles at the brewery on Sunday, September 18th.

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale (Wine Aged)
Availability: 12.7 oz bottles.
Release: 9/18/16
