Wild Heaven Height of Civilization

Wild Heaven Height of Civilization, the brewery’s barrel aged Civilization Barleywine returns to the wild this week.

The base beer, Wild Heaven Civilization Barleywine, brewed with dried Prussian lemons, Iranian hibiscus, tart cherries, cranberries, and cocoa nibs that have been re-hydrated in Four Roses bourbon.

The beer has been so well received, Wild Heaven got a hold of more Dulce Vida tequila barrels to bring this complex beer back once again.

Wild Heaven Height of Civilization is available in 750ml bottles for a limited time.

Style: Barleywine (w/ Lemons, Hibiscus, Cherries, Cranberries, Cocoa Nibs. Barrel Aged. Tequila.)

Three Taverns Cranberry Sauced will kick off taproom can series

Three Taverns Cranberry Sauced

Three Taverns Sour Asylum 2 is back in action for the season, and for the first time – cans. This sour is basically Thanksgiving dinner in your mouth.

The Decatur, Georgia based brewery kicked off the Sour Asylum Series with Sour Asylum 1, a Lactobacillus kettle soured beer fermented with the brewery’s house lager yeast.

The second edition took that beer a step further with the addition of cranberry juice, cinnamon and clove. A perfect Thanksgiving sour beer. They call it “Cranberry Sauced” for a reason.

At this point, Three Taverns is at capacity. This is preventing them from putting another release into full production right now. With what little time they have to spare, the brewery is launching a taproom only series of can releases.

Cranberry Sauced is the second in our new series of lacto-fermented sour ales. Spiced with cranberry juice, cinnamon, and clove in the fermenter, and balanced by a pleasing acidity from the lactobacillus strain added to the kettle, this unique beer is your perfect companion to the Thanksgiving season.

Three Taverns Sour Asylum 2 is on tap the brewery starting today, September 1st. You’ll find it on tap in market in October.

Style: Berliner Weisse (w/ Cranberry Juice, Cinnamon, Clove)
Availability: Draft, 12oz Cans (Taproom)

Boulevard Cranberry Orange Radler, the brewery’s 2nd debuts

Boulevard Cranberry Orange Radler

Boulevard Cranberry Orange Radler is now hitting shelves.

In 2014, the brewery debuted Ginger Lemon Radler. A departure from the brewery’s exemplary lineup? Sure. A success? You bet. Lighter alcohol offerings are always in demand.

Now in October, Boulevard Cranberry Orange Radler is expanding the brewery’s radler lineup. Jeremy Danner, brewer at Boulevard mentions that the process to create this release is pretty much the same – base beer is Unfiltered Wheat; swapping in ginger and lemon juice.

Cranberry Orange Radler will open with an aroma of sweet blood oranges and just a hint of cranberry. The blood orange character boldly manifests in the flavor giving way to cranberry tartness.

Boulevard Cranberry Orange Radler is a 12 ounce can and draft offering in fall, 2016.

Style: Radler (w/ Cranberries, Oranges)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: October, 2016

Devils Backbone Cran-Gose launches in cans

Devil's Backbone Cran-Gose

Devils Backbone Cran-Gose is the newest can in the brewery’s lineup.

Brewed with hundreds of pounds of pureed cranberry, Devils Backbone Cran-Gose is a tart cranberry ale that finishes at 4% alcohol by volume.

“A gose is an old Germanic style sour ale, lightly flavored with salt that creates a tart taste with subtle citrus notes and a slightly salty mouthfeel. It’s a really great base to build upon and for this beer, we added hundreds of pounds of pureed cranberry. The natural tartness of cranberry works well with the fruity character of the beer,” said Brewmaster Jason Oliver.

Devils Backbone Cran-Gose is a 12 ounce can offering, part of the brewery’s 2016 Daypack Series.

Style: Gose (w/ Cranberry)
Availability: 12oz Cans. Feb-April
