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.
Latest Return: Week of August 20th, 2018

SweetWater Mosaic Single Hop Hazy IPA is officially the brewery’s latest seasonal, packaged this week.
Mosaic hops are the star of this hazy India pale ale. SweetWater debuted this release at the brewery for IPA Day on August 2nd.
We are going to simplify the release into simple terms. Mosaic is a dank all-star hop in the brewing world. Having a great stash of this hop increases your chances of a damn good IPA. In real life, not every brewery pulls it off. Water chemistry and dry-hopping plays a big role in the result. SweetWater Mosaic Single Hop IPA simply put – gets it all right. This hazy beer was once found in their “Hatchery Series”. Now, this release is gone full production, full on dank.
Waves of tropical and citrus flavors attack your palate. Think mango and pine. Finish just with just a touch of soft bitterness. If this were baseball, this a walk-off homerun of a seasonal.
SweetWater Mosaic is available for a limited time in 12-ounce bottles, 12-ounce cans, and draft.
Availability: 12oz Bottles, 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: Mid-August 2018
