Hi-Wire Pink Drink, a fan favorite, will be available in cans for only the third time in September.
Previously a draft only favorite, Hi-Wire Pink Drink is a kettle soured wheat ale brewed with lemongrass and raspberries. The end result is a pink beer, thanks to the berries (the brewery compares it to beer’s version of pink lemonade). The brewery finally packaged this release for the first time in fall, 2016 and fans literally drank every last drop.
…an ultra crushable tart wheat ale with lemongrass & raspberries; simple, refreshing, & pink.
Hi-Wire Pink Drink is back in 16-ounce cans across the brewery’s southern distribution footprint in September.

Trillium Peanut Butter PM Dawn is now on sale at the brewery in Boston.
This decadent adventure starts as an American stout brewed with cold brewed coffee from Barrington Roasters in Lee, Massachusetts. Celebrating the brewery’s fifth anniversary, Trillium has thrown in peanut butter. The line forms to the left.
The brewery scaled back the cold brew for this edition to make room for a heavy dose of America’s favorite nut butter.
Trillium Peanut Butter PM Dawn presents an opaque black with brown head and lacing. A strong nose of freshly ground peanuts, chocolate peanut butter milkshake and hints of dark plum from the coffee, is followed by a full-bodied palate, rich with complementary flavors of roasty coffee, swirling dark chocolate/cocoa and finishes with delicious peanut butter.
If you find yourself close to the brewery, now is the time to snag this beer. Peanut Butter PM Dawn is available in 16-ounce cans right….now.
Availability: 16oz Cans. Limited Release.

Monday Night Dinner For One debuts on September 1st. A lonely beer for one.
The Atlanta based brewery calls this a “multigrain India pale ale”, as it’s brewed with a mix of torrified wheat and spelt. The difference? Spelt is also called “hulled wheat”, a subspecies of common wheat. Torrified wheat refers to the process the wheat is treated with. In this case – a high-temperature heat treatment that breaks down the structure of the grain.
Both are used in this case for a hazy effect in the IPA. Because -these days it’s all about haze.
A rustic, smooth IPA that’s the perfect pair for ramen noodles, tv dinners and boxed mac and cheese.
Monday Night Dinner For One will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft, starting at 12 noon on September 1st.
Hops: Mosaic, Motueka, Hallertau Blanc

Creature Comforts Automatic Pale Ale returns to cans again this August.
‘Automatic’ is a hop-forward pale ale, brewed with Mosaic and Crystal hops. If you love that “dank” hop smell and flavor, you will love this beer. Automatic is pale ale on steroids.
“Automatic is meant to be light, refreshing and quite drinkable without falling into the common pitfall of ending up too thin, watery or insipid. No color malts were used, however, the relatively full mouthfeel is enough to support this heavily hopped beer,” said Co-Founder and Brewmaster Adam Beauchamp.”
Local Athens artist Michelle Fontaine created the label for Creature Comforts Automatic Pale Ale. Fontaine took inspiration from 1950’s pop culture as well as the 1940’s Chevy dealership that once occupied the brewery’s building.
You might recognize the phrase “Automatic for the People” emblazoned on the can, especially if you are a REM fan. The album named was derived from legendary Athens, Georgia eatery, Weaver D’s. The southern, soul food eatery is a city staple.
Creature Comforts Automatic Pale Ale is already available on draft at the brewery in Athens. Cans will return to distribution the week of August 20th.
Style: Pale Ale
Hops: Mosaic, Crystal
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Seasonal.
