Monday Night Vinology Syrah debuts this weekend, signaling a new series of “hybridized” American wild ales from the Atlanta based brewery.
This first chapter in a coming series of “hybridized” wild ales. Vinology Syrah is fermented it oak with its namesake Syrah grapes. According to the brewery, drinking this with your wine-loving friends will “blow your collective minds”.
Monday Night Vinology Syrah debuts at the brewery’s Garage location on March 2nd.
More pastry stouts. Monday Night Fistful of Cake is coming to the brewery’s Westside Atlanta location on March 8th.
You should know what a pastry stout is by now. In this case, this release is inspired by opera cake, a French dessert known for its layers of chocolate and coffee. The chocolate in this beer comes from the malt, the coffee from local roaster Batdorf and Bronson, and a “budget-breaking” amount of vanilla beans.
Look for Monday Night Fistful of Cake in 16-ounce cans at the brewery on March 8th, hitting limited distribution shortly after.
The “peanut butter jelly sandwich in a glass” beer returns on March 1st, and this year it arrives with new variants.
Catawba Peanut Butter Jelly Time launched in 2012 – a bready brown ale brewed with wheat, raspberry puree, and North Carolina peanuts. Every year the release has grown in popularity prompting special taproom release parties.
This year, look for Catawba Peanut Butter Jelly Time Strawberry Rhubarb cans in extremely limited quantities alongside the seasonal favorite. While we couldn’t get confirmation from the brewery, we assume the base recipe is the same, along with strawberry and rhubarb additions.
Alongside the two canned releases, a third release – Black Currant will be available on tap.
Catawba Peanut Butter Jelly Time Strawberry Rhubarb will be available in limited 16-ounce cans and draft in the brewery’s tap room starting March 1st.

Creature Comforts Athena Paradiso returns to cans again this March.
Athena Paradiso is a spin on the brewery’s year-round Athena Berliner Weisse. This release features tart cherry, raspberry, and cranberry, which complements a Guava & Passionfruit edition the brewery also releases seasonally.
David Stein, Co-Founder, says “We love how fruit plays with the acidity in Athena. Also, depending on the fruit used the beer will often take on its color – this version in particular will be a dark pink.” The “Paradiso” is meant to instill a vision of paradise and prepare consumers that they are on the verge of going on a beautiful fruit journey.
Creature Comforts Athena Paradiso will be available in both 12-ounce cans and draft again starting March 1st.
