Southbound Transilience, now in cans

Southbound Transilience cans

Southbound Transilience has found a new home in cans this week. The brewery’s popular berliner weisse just made your pool lineup.

While the India Pale Ale is still the most brewed style across America’s breweries, the berliner weisse style is on fire. The wheat beer is kettle soured with Lactobacillus bacteria, and finishes tart and refreshing. Savannah, Georgia’s Southbound Brewing does theirs with a twist. They add fresh mango and pomegranate.

We brewed up this German-style sour wheat to help us transition in the Atlanta market. Lactobacillus and saccharomyces create this light, acidic, and tart summer heat quencher.

We’ve been fan of this beer since trying it last summer. The fruit flavors are beautiful compliment to the finish of this beer. Our criticism was the bottle size for a beer you want to chug. Well… they’ve fixed that now haven’t they? See you at the pool.

Southbound Transilience starts shipping this week in 12 ounce cans for the first time.

Style: Berliner Weisse (w/ Mango, Pomegranate.)

Sierra Nevada Ovila Abbey Golden To Join Monastic Series

Sierra Nevada Ovilla Abby Golden

Sierra Nevada Ovila Series will be expanding soon with the addition of Ovila Abbey Golden. Sierra Nevada’s Ovila Series benefits the nearby Abbey of New Clairvaux in Vina, California.

Each release is a modern take on Belgian-style abbey ales. Recent additions to the lineup feature ingredients like plums and mandarin oranges that are grown at the Abbey. Sierra Nevada Ovila Abbey Golden will feature pomegranates grown on New Clairvaux’s nearly 600 acres of farmland.

Pomegranates have been treasured since ancient times and used as symbols of fruitfulness and prosperity. In the modern era, they are prized for their unique sweet-tart flavor and intense red color, which acts as a perfect counterpoint for the spicy Belgian-style golden ale. This collaboration beer features pomegranates grown at the Abbey of New Clairvaux.

Sierra Nevada Ovila Abbey Golden will be available in 12.7oz bottles in late summer, 2015. A portion or the proceeds benefits the Abbey of New Clairvaux.

Ten Ninety Imperial Porter

Ten Ninety Imperial Porter

From Ten Ninety:

Created in 18th century London, porters were some of the first mass-produced and consumed beers of the industrial revolution. Porter evolved from a blend of brown and darker beers that were precursors to stouts. Tradition has it that these beers were favored by porters and other physical laborers.

Ten Ninety Imperial Porter is fiery elegance. Our porter is brewed with ample Munich, mild brown and de-bittered black malts for a chocolaty, espresso base. To contrast this bittersweet backbone, we added an ample dose of cayenne pepper, and tempered this heat with tart pomegranate juice.

Ten Ninety Imperial Porter is a perfect match for bold, smoky and cured meats as well as deeply roasted fowl and caramelized seafood.
