Lonerider Brewing Company (Raleigh, NC) has officially expanded outside of North Carolina to Atlanta this past weekend. The brewery travelled to Atlanta for a series of launch parties around the city. Initial launch beers include:
Sweet Josie – A temptress who will seduce you, Sweet Josie is crafted in the American Brown style. This is a complex beer balancing a nice hop bitterness with a generous amount of chocolate and aromatic malts. 6.1% ABV.
Shotgun Betty – is a sexy, tough cowgirl who is always armed and dangerous. Don’t be fooled by her good looks, she will have you for an appetizer! That’s why we picked her to represent our Hefeweizen. Shotgun Betty is a wheat beer with rich, banana-clove nose and refreshing dry finish. Sound good? Try one. But beware, once Betty gets a hold of you there is no escape. 5.8% ABV
Both are initially offered in on draft, with 12oz bottles to follow in the future. More from the brewery’s lineup coming soon also. It has been a long road to this point too, as getting approved in the State of Georgia took 2 months longer than expected. Zack is the local rep, follow him on Twitter – @LoneriderATL.
