Beer Street Journal recently tried “Brolo” and the first sips just scream juicy. It’s hard not be with a Mosaic, Mandarina Bavaria, and Simcoe hop lineup.

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

Tin Roof Brewing releases Voodoo Pale Ale

Tin Roof Brewing releases Voodoo

Tin Roof Brewing releases Voodoo Pale Ale just in time for their new Baton Rouge Funk Fest. Tin Roof, based in Baton Rouge, dubs Voodoo Pale Ale as “their new flagship,” and describes this new release as:

“…A heavily dry-hopped American Pale Ale, which relies on malted and flaked oats to enhance the tropical and fruit flavors provided by the hops.”

Expect a fruit and pine forward flavor and aroma from the inclusion of Citra, Simcoe, and Waimea hops. The heavy dry-hopping as well as use of oats and wheat give the beer a naturally hazy appearance.

The first time you will be able to try Voodoo Pale Ale is at The Baton Rouge Funk Fest, an all day free concert from 1:30 to 7:30 on May 13th at the brewery.

Voodoo Pale Ale will be available in 12oz cans within Tin Roof distribution following its release.

Burial Beer & Hoof Hearted Brewing create ‘Two Dollars’ Pale Ale

Burial Two Dollars Pale Ale

Asheville, North Carolina’s Burial Beer and Marengo, Ohio’s Hoof Hearted Brewing have teamed up on a new pale ale.

This beer starts with the love of 80’s movies. If you don’t believe it, check out the Sloth and Burt Reynolds mural on the side of the Burial’s taproom. This beer starts with the love of the John Cusack classic, Better Off Dead. “Johnny” the menacing paperboy in the movie is constantly yelling “I want my two dollars” for the papers.

In that same vein, the brewing duo have created a beer for the taproom that is just $2 dollars.

‘Two Dollars’ Pale Ale is brewed with coriander and lime, plus a touch of lupulin powder (basically concentrated hops) and a bold yeast. The beer is big on flavor, not on price.

Truly a sight to behold: a man beaten. The once great champ, now, a study in moppishness. Hard enough on his luck to run form a blood-thirsty barrel of killer paperboys. But smart enough to save $2 for this can of delightful pale ale, thriftily hashed together with lupulin powder, citrus peel, and tale from our childhood that is just a beloved by these Ohio boys.

Burial Beer Two Dollars Pale Ale will be available in 12 ounce cans and draft at the brewery on Thursday, April 20th.

Style: Pale Ale (w/ Coriander. LimeLupulin Powder.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft
Debut: 4/20/17

In celebration of the completion of the 52 mile walking and biking path known as the Virginia Capital Trail, Hardywood has opted to update the pale ale’s recipe. The updated formula features a New England IPA yeast strain (juicier character), golden oats (smoother mouthfeel), less caramel malt, and a 100% Falconer’s Flight dry hop.

We raise a can in honor of the hard work of the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation and its volunteers, and your next adventure along one of America’s most bucolic and historically significant byways.

Hardywood Capital Trail Pale Ale will be available in 12 ounce cans and draft again starting April 15th.

Fun fact. A quasar is the small region around a supermassive black hole (found in the center of massive galaxies). The area emits a massive amount of electromagnetic energy, thanks to the mass from the core of the surrounding galaxy due gravitational influence of the black hole, getting pulled into the accretion disk. (The disk is thanks to the gravitational pull into the black hole.) Basically – massive energy release, and extremely fascinating astronomical phenomena. However, the pale ale requires less math.
