Creature Comforts Athena Paradiso with Cherry, Raspberry, & Cranberry kicks off 2020

Creature Comforts Athena Paradiso can

Creature Comforts Athena Paradiso returns to cans again to kick off the new year.

Athena Paradiso is a spin on the brewery’s year-round Athena Berliner Weisse. This release features tart cherry, raspberry, and cranberry, which complements a Guava & Passionfruit edition the brewery also releases seasonally.

David Stein, Co-Founder, says “We love how fruit plays with the acidity in Athena. Also, depending on the fruit used the beer will often take on its color – this version in particular will be a dark pink.”  The “Paradiso” is meant to instill a vision of paradise and prepare consumers that they are on the verge of going on a beautiful fruit journey.

Creature Comforts Athena Paradiso will be available in both 12-ounce cans and draft again starting in mid-January.

Style: Berliner Weisse (w/ Tart Cherries, Raspberries, Cranberries)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Initial Release: February 2016
Latest Return: January 2020

For the hardcore Tropicalia fans: Creature Comforts Imperial Trop Haze returns

Creature Comforts Imperial Trop Haze

A new riff on one of Georgia’s most popular India pale ales returns today – Creature Comforts Imperial Trop Haze.

Tropicalia, Creature Comfort’s year-round IPA has truly made a name for itself in the southeast. Building on that popularity, the Athens, Georgia based brewery has released Tropicalisma, and Double Dry Hop Trop into the small-batch “Trop” inspired family. Today brings back Imperial Trop Haze, three words that make hopheads break a sweat.

CREATURE COMFORTS LAUNCHES YEAR-ROUND LAGER

The biggest Tropicalia fans ate this release up when it debuted last October. Between the name, and the hops (Citra, Centennial, and Galaxy), just the description was enough to sell it out.

Creature Comforts Imperial Trop Haze will be available in 16-ounce cans and draft when the brewery opens on July 26th.

Style: Imperial IPA
Hops: Citra, Centennial, Galaxy
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Brewery Only.

Summer Tritonia: Creature Comforts Cucumber and Lime

Creature Comforts Cucumber Lime Tritonia can

Creature Comforts Cucumber and Lime Tritonia is back in cans ahead of the official start of summer.

In 2017, Cucumber and Lime Tritonia cans were finally released complimenting the popular draft offering. The base tart gose is brewed with coriander and sea salt, plus a blend of fresh lime and cucumber.

Thanks to the brewery’s added capacity at their second facility in their hometown of Athens, Georgia, the Tritonia series is a little less scarce and a lot more delicious.

Cucumber has a subtle flavor, making this vegetable a little complicated to pop in beer. Creature Comforts has taken the time to dial in the cucumber flavor in order, striking a beautiful balance with the tartness of the lime and base gose, and summery, garden-freshness of the cukes.

Creature Comforts Cucumber and Lime Tritonia is one of a few “Tritonia”  variants available during the year.12-ounce cans and draft will be available for a limited time starting June 18th.

Style: Gose (w/ Lime, Cucumber, Sea Salt, Coriander)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.
Distribution: Athens/Atlanta
Latest Return: 6/18/19
