Creature Comforts Automatic Pale Ale cans return this month

Creature Comforts Automatic Pale can

Creature Comforts Automatic Pale Ale has been canned for second time this month.

Creature Comforts Automatic Pale Ale 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 an REM fan. The album named was derived from legendary Athens, Georgia eatery, Weaver D’s. The southern, soul food eatery is a city staple.

Automatic Pale Ale will be available in late June in 12 ounce cans and draft.

Style: Pale Ale
Hops: Mosaic, Crystal

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Seasonal.
Latest Return: June, 2017

5.2% ABV

Terrapin Watermelon Gose returns ahead of the summer heat

Terrapin Watermelon Gose cans

Terrapin Watermelon Gose is headed back to shelves, in time for the coming summer.

Terrapin Watermelon Gose is the brewery’s first packaged gose style, a tart beer traditionally brewed with sea salt and coriander. Now, unless you haven’t paid a single lick of attention to the American craft beer scene at all in the past few years, the U.S. loves breaking tradition. Enter watermelon into the fold.

RELATED: Terrapin T-Time (with tea & lemon)

The base gose is aged on fresh watermelon juice, which is a nice offset to the tart base beer. So much summer packed into this 12 ounce can.

Terrapin Watermelon Gose is available across the brewery’s entire footprint starting in June, 2017.

Style: Gose (w/ Coriander. Salt. Watermelon.)
Availability: 12oz Cans
Latest Return: June, 2017

Double dry hopped: The Veil Brewing Broz Broz Night Night

The Veil Brewing Broz Broz Night Night

The Veil Brewing Broz Broz Night Night debuts in cans on May 30th. This one is all about the dry-hop.

Broz Broz is the “brother” beer to Citra hop heavy Broz Night Out. The Veil opted to double dry-hop this edition, uping it what they call cray-cray status.

This one turned out insane. We love the base beer, but with the DDH treatment, it’s just cray cray.

Style: Imperial IPA
Hops: Citra
Availability: 16oz Cans

Last time until winter: Burial Skillet Donut Stout cans

Burial Skillet Donut Stout cans

Burial Skillet Donut Stout are back in action once again on May 26th – the last time before winter 2017.

Burial Skillet Donut Stout is an oatmeal stout and is brewed with molasses, milk sugar, and a 50/50 blend of Big Trouble and Hologram Counter Culture Coffee. This fan favorite is big on coffee with just a tiny hint of milk chocolate, finishing silky smooth. Breakfast beer? Dessert beer? That’s up to you. Last summer it became a pool beer for a while (week).

Cold black iron. Never decaying, it is held to the fire to unearth impeccable flavor from whatever it holds. Never biased, it welcomes all ingredients. The Skillet is our most trusted and daring tool of culinary ingenuity. It is the perfect barrier-carrier for this rich, black ale. This breakfast stout is made from a blend of nine barley malts, a healthy scoop of oats, milk and molasses sugars, and our favorite blend of freshly roasted Counter Culture Coffee beans. Welcome the day with rich cocoa, smooth caramel, dark fruits, and an abundance of diverse coffee aroma unlike no other. Drink your breakfast.

Burial Skillet Donut Stout cans are intermittently available in 16 ounce cans and draft throughout the year. This round is the last time before winter, according to Burial.
