The first hoppy lager for the brewery: Arches Brewing Triboulet

Arches Brewing Triboulet

Arches Brewing Triboulet, an India pale lager debuts on Friday. 

Just seconds south of Atlanta, near the world’s busiest airport, lies Georgia’s only lager brewery. Their approach has turned some of their biggest skeptics into fans. Coming up this weekend is their latest creation, a lager/India pale ale hybrid known as Triboulet.

Arches Brewing Triboulet is the brewery’s first hop-forward lager, a blend of lager yeast and modern (IPA) hopping techniques. Per the brewery, the end result is “a balanced hoppy lager with juicy bitterness and a crisp finish. Flaked high-protein grains add a slight haze and smooth mouthfeel.”

Arches Brewing Triboulet will available in 12-ounce cans and draft at the brewery on Friday, October 12th.

Style: India Pale Lager
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Brewery-Only.
Debut: 10/12/18

Creature Comforts to debut Classic City Lager year-round in October

Creature Comforts Classic City Lager

Creature Comforts Classic City Lager is coming in October. Named for the brewery’s hometown of Athens, Georgia.

As expected of the style, Classic City Lager described as a “clean, crisp, and easy-drinking lager” by the brewery. The 4.2% alcohol by volume, easy-drinking beer should be pretty approachable by all beer drinkers. “There are so many options to choose from and we wanted to make a beer that is perfect for those who enjoy drinking a lower ABV pale lager. Classic City Lager is simply good cold beer,” says co-founder and head brewery David Stein.

The can’s typography was created by Athens artist Chris Collins.

Creature Comforts Classic City Lager will be available in 12-ounce can and draft at the brewery starting in October, entering distribution in November. Year-round.

Style: Lager
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round.
Debut: 10/8/18

Monday Night set to release 14 month bourbon barreled ‘Last Will and Testament’

Monday Night Last Will and Testament

Monday Night Last Will and Testament will join the Atlanta brewery’s lineup on September 22nd.

Old ale isn’t necessarily “old” per say. Many of these old world styles have aged for some time in wood vats. One of the most famous British examples is Gale’s Prize Old Ale.

The old ale style has evolved over the decades and centuries. Almost always malty and strong, some of the famous examples in the United States are North Coast Old Stock Ale, Founders Curmudgeon, or Bell’s Third Coast Old Ale. (Incidentally, Founders Curmudgeon’s Better Half, a barrel aged edition of this beer is on shelves now after 6 years.)

Monday Night’s interpretation of the style is malty and strong (11.5% alcohol by volume), and perhaps a little “old” as well – aged 14 months in bourbon barrels. Why “Last Will & Testament?” Perhaps an allusion to old age. Good to have one.

Monday Night Last Will & Testament will be available in 16.9-ounce bottles at the brewery’s Garage location on September 22nd.

Style: Old Ale (Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 16.9oz Bottles
Debut: 9/22/18

11.5% ABV
