The brewing team in Athens, Georgia has a penchant for lower alcohol by volume beers and kettle souring. Two instances you will see more of over the coming coming months. If you ask us, that’s why they are so good at day drinking

Unknown Hospitali-tea has return once again to the brewery’s lineup.
It’s the south, and sweet tea is king. The Charlotte, North Carolina based brewery created a caramel malt heavy amber ale, and added black tea leaves and orange blossom honey. The hops mimic lemons. The result? A boozy sweet tea style beer
Made with black tea leaves and sweet orange blossom honey, this beer is on the lighter side with great caramel malts. The finish of sweet tea and hops provide a new floral lemon aroma. Plain and simple, Hospitali-tea is refreshing.
Unknown Hospitali-tea is a 12 once can and draft offering for the summer.
Return: June, 2016
