Creature Comforts Automatic Pale promoted to year-round

Creature Comforts Automatic Pale 2019

Creature Comforts Automatic Pale Ale has been bumped up to year-round status as of this month.

Automatic’ 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 a REM fan. The album name was derived from legendary Athens, Georgia eatery, Weaver D’s. The southern, soul food eatery is a city staple.

Creature Comforts Automatic Pale Ale is already available on draft at the brewery in Athens.

Style: Pale Ale
Hops: Mosaic, Crystal

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Year-round.

5.2% ABV

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)

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
