Creature Comforts Bibo Pilsner are now available in cans for the first time. The brewery’s hometown of Athens, Georgia has seen the first distribution, with Atlanta not far behind. This is Creature’s third year-round offering.
It took time to grow and extra capital to increase fermentation capacity in order to release their already year-round draft pilsner. Creature Comforts Bibo Pilsner has been available from the brewery’s inception two-years ago, only on draft.
“For this label, we took inspiration from the classic design of European Pilsners, which are often a more traditional style with colors including white, gold blue, silver, red and green,” said Creature Comforts Co-Founder and CEO, Chris Herron.
Creature Comforts Bibo Pilsner is brewed with Czech Saaz, Sterling, and Moteuka hops. The Athens, Georgia market will see Bibo cans the week of May 7th, corresponding with the Athens Criterium bike race. Creature Comforts is a sponsor for third year in a row.
As of June 10th, can shipments of this beer are available in the Atlanta market as well.
Release (Cans): May, 2016
Update: Creature Comforts tells Beer Street Journal that the Bibo Cans in Atlanta will be extremely limited in the Atlanta area after this shipment. The brewery is still focusing on the Athens market for the time being. Automatic Pale Ale cans are next up in production as well…
