Mother Earth Big Mother Triple IPA celebrates 11 years

Mother Earth Big Mother Triple IPA

Mother Earth Big Mother Triple IPA has been the brewery’s anniversary ale since the beginning. It’s back for a limited time.

Big Mother’s recipe is a little different every year, but always has a theme – not too boozy, massively hopped. As far as the 2021 edition is concerned: “A whirlpool and dry hop assault lends aromas and flavors of apricot, navel oranges, red grapefruit, and papaya.”

Mothe Earth Big Mother Triple IPA is available in May and June, celebrating the brewery’s 11th Anniversary in 16-ounce cans and draft.

Style: Imperial IPA
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Limited Release.
Latest Return: May 2021

Monday Night Don’t Call It Hotlanta. Maybe, needs some Gas-lanta

Monday Night Don't Call It Hotlanta can

Monday Night Don’t Call It Hotlanta returns mid-May.

In 2018, the Atlanta-based brewery’s Black Tie Series became home to this quadruple dry-hopped imperial India pale ale, brewed with Columbus, Citra, and Galaxy hops. According to the brewery, it’s a “bridge collapsing” 8.5% alcohol by volume. Don’t know what that means by bridge collapsing in Atlanta? Google it. It was truly a shitshow.

With the unpredictability of Atlanta’s spring weather, this cloudy double IPA pops with sunny tropical notes on the nose. It drinks dank and finishes with a bit of bitterness, much like an Atlanta sports fan.

Monday Night Don’t Call It Hotlanta is available in 16-ounce cans and draft.

Drink it in good health… and don’t call it  “Hotlanta”.

Style: Imperial IPA
Hops: Citra, Galaxy, Columbus
Malts: Pilsner, 2-Row, Flaked Oats

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: 4/29/18
Latest Return: Mid-May, 2021

From meme to beer: Scofflaw Karen From Next Door IPA

Scofflaw Karen From Next Door

What was one of my worst regrets from 2020? Joining the Nextdoor app. Sure, it seemed like a good idea for safety awareness. But then you read it. The stream of self-entitled complaints, and the constant stream of self-righteous posts. It started as “Can I speak to your manager” haircut and memes, and  ultimately becoming “Karen.” You can probably chalk this phenomenon up to a Dane Cook stand-up bit from years ago.

Nextdoor is full of Karens, as Scofflaw Brewing found out the hard way when your brewery is next to a neighborhood. Honoring that love/hate/can’t stop reading the comments relationship is Scofflaw Karen From Next Door IPA.

There have never been more Karens our lives…so in honor of Mother’s Day, and for moms protecting their children from vicious servers everywhere, we tip our hats to you, Karen.

The hazy India pale ale speaks for itself, or to the manager directly. To our calculations, “Karen” has been released at least twice by the brewery in the past year, selling out fast each time.

If you missed it last time, Karen From Next Door IPA is back stirring up shit at the brewery. No mute button needed.

Style: IPA
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Brewery only

Creature Comforts Table Beer returns ahead of Thanksgiving

Creature Comforts Table Beer

Creature Comforts Table Beer, formerly known as Epicurious, returns this month.

This release started with chefs, not brewers back in 2016. The Creature Comforts team sat down with Ryan Smith of Atlanta’s Staplehouse and Peter Dale, Executive Chef and Owner of Athens’ The National with the goal of creating a beer to pair with a wide variety of food.

Table Beer, a foodie’s beer, doesn’t fit any style guidelines according to the brewery. The beer is described as “earthy, floral, and soft citrus hop character that is balanced by complex yeast flavors and subtle bitterness on the finish.”

Rather than looking at industry trends for what to brew next, we brewed a beer that best complements drinking with food and friends.

The label artwork for this culinary-inspired can is thanks to the talent of Athens local Bryn Rouse, whose illustrations can be found on her Instagram feed.

Creature Comforts Table Beer returns in 12-ounce cans across the brewery’s entire footprint starting November 13th. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this beer benefits The Giving Kitchen.

Style: Belgian-Style Session Beer
Hops: Sterling, Saphir, Lemondrop. Dry Hop: Cascade and Comet.
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Limited.

Debut: October 2016
Latest Return: November 2020

4.2% ABV
