Three Taverns Mont Fang, a collaboration with collaboration with Chattanooga Whiskey, debuts on October 27th.
This imperial milk stout is actually a two-way collaboration between to two artisan companies. Chattanooga Whiskey gave Three Taverns oak barrels that were used to age their 1816 Bourbon. The brewery aged a strong milk stout in the barrels, which have now been returned to the distillery to further age a bourbon.
Three Taverns Mont Fang is the result of the barrel-aging experiment – available in 750 milliliter bottles at the brewery starting at 11 am on October 27th.
New Belgium Brewing’s latest collaboration is not with a brewery, but with a bourbon distillery. New Belgium Oakspire Bourbon Barrel Ale is hitting shelves.
The Fort Collins, Colorado brewery touts this beer as an entirely different kind of bourbon-inspired ale. instead of resting this release in barrels on regular barrel staves, Knob Creek soaked and oak spirals signature bourbon, which New Belgium aged on a rye-heavy ale.
“Our Brewhouse team likes to say that we didn’t just develop a custom extraction technology, but rather, a beer-flavoring ‘missile,’ and we’re thrilled to present our newest, innovative venture with the launch of Oakspire Bourbon Barrel Ale,” says Ross Koenigs, Research and Development Brewer.
He’s not joking about the “missile” innovation. The brewery’s engineers created a missile-shaped vessel where Knob Creek Bourbon-soaked oak spirals and char from used Knob Creek barrels “mingle” with the high rye ale. This extraction includes harvesting the barrel char, plus a blend of toasted oak spirals at varying degrees to bring all the oak and spice into the liquid.
New Belgium Oakspire Bourbon Barrel Ale is available in 12-ounce bottles and draft now, while supplies last.
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: Late September 2018
9% ABV, 20 IBUs

Atlanta Brewing Kentucky Beer Dad is the next can release coming to the newly re-named brewery’s lineup this weekend.

Presales of 16-ounce 4-pack cans of Atlanta Brewing Kentucky Beer Dad start today and release at the brewery on September 21st.

There’s an 80’s song that talks about video killing the radio star. Then came the internet, and movie streaming that eventually killed Blockbuster, what was once America’s largest movie rental service. There is only one Blockbuster left, and it’s located in Bend, Oregon. 10 Barrel Brewing is based nearby that last lonely bastion of physical media rental (unless you’re still using Redbox.) Of course, such a thing calls for a beer collaboration. Here’s nostalgic flashback in beer form – 10 Barrel Brewing The Last Blockbuster.
Don’t act like you didn’t snag a mountain of candy on the way out the door on your rental adventure. 10 Barrel Brewing The Last Blockbuster screams popcorn and movie theater candy, and they certainly did so in abundance.
The beer is subtitled a “S1nistor Black Ale’ with nuances of red licorice. The image the brewery is circulating has more theater candy in the background, but no mention of the label.
We’d almost think it’s an April Fool’s Joke if it didn’t pop up in August.
The brewery and PR company of record have not responded to a request for more details…
Atlanta, Georgia’s Monday Night Brewing will have some whiskey bragging rights to go alongside their beer lineup. The brewery has an ongoing collaboration with American Spirit Works.
This story starts 5 years ago, with Monday Night co-founder Joel Iverson living next door to American Spirit co-founder Charlie Thompson. The businesses were born literally next door to each other. From a fermentation standpoint, brewing and distilling have a lot in common, so Monday NIght’s head brewer Adam Bishop and ASW’s distiller Justin Manglitz had a lot to talk about.
Monday Night Scottish-style Single Malt Whiskey starts with a mash full of cherrywood smoked malt, the same used in their flagship Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale. The mash was transferred 5 miles down the road using the highly scientific “renting a Penske truck” method. ASW distilled the mash and transferred it to white oak quarter casks.
Fortunately, our patience has paid off. Like the mighty Scottish badger, this Scotch-style Whiskey has a pleasant bite and will burrow into your belly with a smooth, slightly sweet, and delightfully smoky finish. – Monday Night Brewing
Monday Night Scottish-style Single Malt Whiskey is available in 750-milliliter bottles at Atlanta area liquor stores again in late-August and September.
