Three Taverns Theophan the Recluse Returns

Three Taverns Theophan the Recluse

Three Taverns Craft Brewery (Decatur, GA) is released Theophan the Recluse again. The beer kicked off the brewery’s 750ml series last year. Recluse is brewed with a mix of eight specialty dark malts, Muscovado sugar, and a Belgian yeast strain.

Theophan the Recluse was a Russian monk known for the spiritual depth and complexity of his writings. We consider him a perfect namesake for this rich, complex imperial stout, brewed with eight specialty malts, dark Muscovado sugar and a Belgian yeast strain. Deep, mysterious, full-bodied and indefinably exotic, Theophan the Recluse is meant to transport drinkers to a place of deep contemplation, mystical insight and inspired conversation.

Three Taverns Theophan the Recluse was the brewery’s third offering.
