Monday Night Darker Subject Matter – a summer thriller

Monday Night Darker Subject Matter Can

Monday Night Darker Subject Matter,  a bourbon-barrel-aged edition of the brewery’s Dark Subject Matter, debuts today.

Back in March of this year, in a sea of pastry stout releases all over the United States in the dead of winter, the Atlanta based brewery bucked the national trend a bit. A big, rich, completely adjunct-free imperial stout known as Dark Subject Matter emerged. It was absolutely perfect winter beer – chocolatey, fudgy, thick as hell and silky smooth.

Debuting today (and less perfect for the summer heat) is the barrel-aged version of this imperial stout – Darker Subject Matter. This 13.5% alcohol by volume imperial stout with a murdery vibe is every damn bit that big beer we fell in love with in the winter, now with an oaky, vanilla bourbon overtone. The side of the can says HEAVIER THICKER OAK. Monday Night means it.

Go ahead and slam this beast by the pool or at the beach and definitely on an empty stomach after running a few miles. It’s always good to remind yourself that your bad decisions aren’t always behind you.

Either way, Monday Night Darker Subject Matter is a real treat, hot weather or no hot weather. Available at the brewery starting at 4 pm today in 16-ounce cans and draft.

Style: Imperial Stout (Barrel-Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.
Debut: 7/26/19

13.5% ABV

Mother Earth debuts a hazy collaboration with Fremont Brewing

Mother Earth 4 Seasons Hazy IPA

When Mother Earth Brew Co. teams up with Seattle taste giant Fremont Brewing, expect a damn good beer.

First, let’s talk about the series. Four times a year, Mother Earth releases a seasonal beer, tied to the Earth’s four-ish seasons. (In the south, real winter is debatable. Don’t even get us started on whatever Florida calls seasons.)

For these hot months, Mother Earth Brew Co. and Fremont created a hazy IPA, that’s every bit the juice and haze you’d expect from the duo. Summer is a great time to debut this release, after all, the teams met originally on a fishing trip.

Further tying this beer to summer is an array off really rare hops (not grown in abundance), including African Queen from South Africa. The malt comes from a farmer-owned cooperative, LINC Malt out of Spokane, WA. We might be running a little low on descriptors for hazy IPAs so le us simply leave you with this. Don’t miss this release. You really CAN stand out in a crowded world of hazy beers, and Mother Earth and Fremont proved it.

Mother Earth 4 Seasons Hazy IPA is a limited summer seasonal in 16-ounce cans and draft. Don’t sleep on it.

Style: Hazy IPA
Hops: African Queen, Galaxy, Mosaic Cryo, El Dorado
Malts: 2 Row, Dextrin, Golden Naked Oats, Unmalted Wheat

Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.
Debut: June 2019

7.5% ABV, 45 IBUs
