Southerly Love is an American wild ale, slightly kettle soured with lactobacillus and fermented with the house brettanomyces yeast blend. This January, Creature Comforts Southerly Love returns briefly to the brewery’s lineup. The 2017 edition features Idaho 7, Cascade, and Crystal hops.
“We used a solid dose of funky, tropical and aromatic hops, both in the brewhouse and as a dry hop, to add complexity and intrigue to the beer. The result was a synthesis of yeast and hop flavors, melded into a balanced, cohesive and just plain delicious beer.” – Co-Founder and Brewmaster Adam Beauchamp
The new label was designed by University of Georgia Scientific Illustration Student Katie Schmidt.
Creature Comforts Southerly Love will be available in 750ml bottles and draft at the brewery in Athens, Georgia on January 17th.
Style: American Wild Ale
Hops: Idaho 7, Cascade Crystal
Availability: 750ml bottles, Draft.
Latest Return: January, 2017
The Unknown Brewing Company and 7venth Sun Brewing have a new collaboration they will release Thursday – Rise Against Clowns.
The portion of the population that hates clowns have something to love with this collaboration. Unknown Rise Against Clowns is barrel aged American wild ale, brewed with blood oranges, and cotton candy. Yes, cotton candy.
The blood oranges give it a pop of citrus flavor and the cotton candy gets fermented out leaving a subtle vanilla finish. The end result is like a Brett orange creamsicle.
Unknown/7th Sun Rise Against Clowns is a 750 milliliter bottle release. On sale in the Unknown tap room on October 15th, and other North Carolina locations the following week.
The weisse, aka “Florida Weisse” is loaded with prickly pear, brewed as a tribute to one of Tampa Bay’s biggest craft beer supporters, Sue Muntner. Sadly, Sue lost a hard fought battle with cancer in June of 2014.
This beer is dedicated to Sue Muntner, a wonderful friend and supporter of craft beer in Tampa Bay. We made this beer in a style she championed and loaded it with Prickly Pear. Please enjoy this Florida weisse in a snifter, the only appropriate glassware for toasting Sue.
A Beer Named Sue collaboration has not been officially announced by any of the breweries. Cigar City will handle the 22oz bottle packaging.
7venth Sun Brewing (SLKDJFS) has become the first brewery in Florida to can a berliner weisse. The tart German wheat beer is gaining popularity among craft brewers, but there aren’t’ many to be found in cans. Especially in Florida. Until now.
Wolfman’s Berliner Weisse is now available in limited quantities in 16oz cans. The brewery has actually limited purchase to two cans per person. (If it’s even still available.)
Style: Berliner Weisse
Availability: 16oz cans, Draft.
This past Saturday marked the 4th Annual Brewvival in Charleston, South Carolina. The festival is absolutely laden with some of the best beer you’ll find on American soil. Notable brewers such as Justin Stange (7venth Sun), Ron Extract (Jester King), “Spike” Buchowski and John Cochran (Terrapin Beer), Sam Calagione (Dogfish Head), Ken Grossman (Sierra Nevada), & many more were in attendance. Despite an incredible beer lineup, 2013 Brewival may have won the title of “Muddiest Beer Festival in History”. Woodstock ain’t got sh*t on this. It never.stopped.raining.
As you can see – the beer faithful persevered, weather beer damn. There is beer to drink. Brewvival is sponsored by Coast Brewing and The Charleston Beer Exchange.
