SweetWater Tropical Lover rolls off the can in Atlanta as a new seasonal in April.
Nick Burgoyne, brewer at SweetWater has been developing this recipe for some time now. He created a low alcohol by volume Berliner Weisse; adding mango, guava, and passionfruit to the beer. The result was something quite tropical and very refreshing.
“When we put test batches on tap at the Woodlands and in our main taproom, people kept commenting on how drinkable and refreshing it was; they loved the tropical flavors. I imagine Tropical Lover will be a hit with folks hanging out on the water all summer, kicking back with a few daytime drinks.” – Nick B.
SweetWater Tropical Lover will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft starting April 7th. Look for a launch party at the brewery on April 19th.
Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse is as close to a beer-inspired Arnold Palmer drink as we’ve ever tried. This month, the beer returns for a second season.
The brewing team in Athens, Georgia has a penchant for lower alcohol by volume beers as well as kettle souring. A blend of those two created the wildly popular Watermelon Gose.
Sweet tea and golf are southern staples; making for easy inspiration for Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse. The tea is courtesy of Maya Tea in Tucson, Arizona.
Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse is available in 12-ounce cans and draft again starting in March 2018.

Those magically inspired, beer-loving individuals are sure to love this artwork. Monday Night Mischief Managed will emerge from their barrels soon.
Mischief Managed is a no-boil Berliner Weisse that has been barrel-soured in white wine barrels. Fresh raspberries have recently been added to the barrels, then allowed to ferment a second time. The result should be a beer that would make Moody, Wormtail, Padfoot & Prongs proud.
Monday Night Mischief Managed will be a 500-milliliter bottle release. The brewery has not yet announced a release date.

Monday Night Dr. Robot is the latest can release by the Atlanta based brewery.
This raspberry kettle soured ale was first teased in September, at a media event previewing Monday Night’s second located now known as the ‘Garage’. Dr. Robot is a simple sour beer, brewed with fresh blackberry juice and lemon zest. The result is a beautiful pink tinted beer that is great for drinking on its own, or with some of your favorite food.
A tart, fruity sour beer. Dr. Robot is as playful as its name. After souring to a delightfully tart level, we add blackberry juice and lemon zest to enhance and balance the flavor. The juice gives this beer a pink hue. The perfect blend of sweet and sour, Dr. Robot is a refreshing year-round sipper.
Monday Night Dr. Robot is available in 12-ounce cans and draft, year-round starting in October.

Creature Comforts Athena Paradiso with Passionfruit and Guava will return to the brewery’s seasonal lineup again this month.
The brewery opened with Athena, a kettle soured wheat beer, aka berliner weisse a few years ago. In February, 2016 the Athens, Georgia based brewery released the first canned Athena Paradiso, brewed with tart cherry, raspberry, and cranberry. Creature Comforts tells Beer Street Journal that it was the most expensive recipe they’ve ever made.
In late August, Creature Comforts Athena Paradiso with Passionfruit and Guava will return to the seasonal lineup again in late August.
“Athena Paradiso is a beautifully refreshing beer. The passion fruit and guava flavors transport you to a tropical paradise during these hot summer months.” – David Stein, Co-founder & head brewer
Creature Comforts Athena Paradiso with Passionfruit and Guava will be an extremely limited release in 12 ounce cans and draft. Note, the can will sport the same red Paradiso branding as the February release.
The brewery will host a can release tour at the brewery in Athens on September 1st . Cans hit the market in both Athens and Atlanta shortly after.
Ed Note: The brewery has shifted the release date from August 26th to September 1st, 2017
Boulevard Berliner Weisse is now available, a part of the brewery’s fall seasonal lineup.
Few beer styles can match the delicate, sparkling character of the classic Berliner Weisse, with its light body and tart palate. It’s said that Napoleon’s troops referred to it as “The Champagne of the North,” high praise for beer, coming from Frenchmen. With Berliner Weisse, we pay tribute to the style, while giving it a distinctively American twist. Bright and thirst-quenching, the beer is enlivened by soft lactic notes.
Boulevard Berliner Weisse is available in 12-ounce bottles and draft, from August to October, 2017.
Style: Berliner Weisse
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. Aug-Oct
Debut: August 2017
Southbound Transilience has found a new home in cans this week. The brewery’s popular berliner weisse just made your pool lineup.
While the India Pale Ale is still the most brewed style across America’s breweries, the berliner weisse style is on fire. The wheat beer is kettle soured with Lactobacillus bacteria, and finishes tart and refreshing. Savannah, Georgia’s Southbound Brewing does theirs with a twist. They add fresh mango and pomegranate.
We brewed up this German-style sour wheat to help us transition in the Atlanta market. Lactobacillus and saccharomyces create this light, acidic, and tart summer heat quencher.
We’ve been fan of this beer since trying it last summer. The fruit flavors are beautiful compliment to the finish of this beer. Our criticism was the bottle size for a beer you want to chug. Well… they’ve fixed that now haven’t they? See you at the pool.
Southbound Transilience starts shipping this week in 12 ounce cans for the first time.
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Seasonal.
