Orpheus releases Do or Die Oatmeal Cream Stout year-round

Orpheus Brewing Do or Die

Orpheus Brewing Do or Die Oatmeal Cream Stout debuts at the Atlanta-based brewery this week. 

Coming down from the brewery’s “Year 7” anniversary that featured nearly a dozen imperial stouts, is an Orpheus beer a little smoother and far less boozy. The brewing team was inspired by a simple English milk stout, heavy on oats, chocolate, and wheat malts. “We love making stouts and wanted to brew one you can have pints of, instead of tasters,” per the brewery. 

The oatmeal cream stout (thanks to a dosing of lactose milk sugar) has chocolate and coffee aromas and finishes with hints of caramel and toffee. 

UPCOMING EVENT: BURNING MOUTH 2021 at ORPHEUS BREWING

Orpheus Brewing Do or Die Oatmeal Cream Stout is available starting this week in 12-ounce cans and draft year-round, everywhere the brewery distributes. 

Style: Oatmeal Stout (w/ Lactose)
Hops: Columbus

Orpheus Brewing’s Stouts All the Way Down gains 16th release

Orpheus - Stouts All the Way Down Vol 16

Orpheus Brewing Stouts All the Way Down Vol 16 debuts on September 3rd, a part of the brewery’s “Year 7” Anniversary. 

This is the 16th iteration of the brewery’s ongoing Stouts All the Way Down Series started an imperial stout aged in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels. Which as odd as it sounds now, was very unique upon release (around the brewery’s 5th anniversary. Why? No vanilla, lactose, cereal, or other food. Just a barrel-aged imperial stout -something we basically forgot about. 

The series name draws from the mythological idea of a world turtle that supports a flat earth on its back. That turtle rests on a larger turtle, and that turtle on a… you get the idea. The stack of turtles continues indefinitely. It’s a popular example of the regress argument in epistemology. If you want to deep dive into a logical wormhole, read up on the term “infinite regress.”

This particular [Turtle] in the series is an imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels with honey roasted peanuts and strawberries. 

Stouts All the Way Down Volume 16 will Bev available in 12.7oz bottles at the brewery starting September 3rd. 

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Honey Roasted Peanuts. Strawberries. Barrel-Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 12.7oz Bottles. Limited Release

Orpheus Brewing debuts 7 beers for Year 7 this weekend

We missed Orpheus Brewing’s Year Six celebration. The pandemic took care of that. 

The anniversaries before this virus mess, I sat down with brewery founder Jason Pellet and we chatted about the previous year of running a brewery, beer trends, greek mythology, and music. We both play instruments so it’s easy to geek out, especially when it comes to classical music. 

Maybe this year we can sit down again to do a little day drinking and do it all again. In the meantime, Orpheus Brewing celebrates their 7th year this weekend. In true Orpheus fashion they aren’t releasing just one anniversary beer. They are dropping 7 (or more.) Crazy long names intact. 

Here is the full list of release we got Orpheus to divulge. Cliff notes version – look out for a barrel-aged dopplebock, barrel-aged barleywine, a few wild ales, plus some barrel-aged imperial stouts. Fall is coming. It’s time to put the seltzers down.

An 8-bottle set is available now to purchase on Oznr. We are assuming individual bottles will be available at the party day-of.

Orpheus Brewing Stillness Feels the Air and Shudders

Orpheus - Stillness Feels the Air and Shudders

Orpheus Brewing Stillness Feels the Air and Shudders, an imperial stout debut on the brewery’s Year 7 Anniversary weekend. 

The base beer is an imperial stout, aged 2-3 years in whiskey barrels. 

The stillness feels the air and shudders. Toiling through the hulking gate from now to always now, extant riches burning so we venerate the ashes. The oppressive sound of nothing dampens drifting calculations, but broken thoughts entwine when creeping darkness has no alibi. Constructing eternity out of discount ruins, engulfed in all that’s real to me, which takes me home amidst morass to see through smoke and ash the brief infinity we built.

Orpheus Brewing Stillness Feels the Air and Shudders will be available in 12.7oz bottles on September 3rd. 

Style: Imperial Stout (Barrel Aged. Whiskey.)
Availability: 12.7oz Bottles
Debut: 9/3/21
