Creature Comforts The Curious No. 8 debuts July 10th

Creature Comforts The Curious No. 8

Creature Comforts The Curious No. 8 will release on a special tour on July 10th.

This release arises from the brewery’s Emergence project. The project features a tart blonde ale, that was fermented with at least four strains of the brewery’s house yeast, rested in wine barrels. Variations of that release spawned The Curious No. 6 (aged on peaches).

To create Creature Comforts The Curious No. 8, the brewery selected two wine barrels from the base Emergence beer, chosen for the strong berry character. Blueberries from Rhonda’s Blueberries in Union Point, Georgia were added to those select barrels.

Chris and Rhonda grow the best blueberries we’ve ever tasted, and the blueberries picked for this beer are Ochlockonee blueberries. You can try these at the Athens Farmers Market where Rhonda’s blueberries are sold.

Creature Comforts The Curious No. 8 will be available on a special tour at the brewery in Athens, Georgia on July 10th. Attendees will get to try The Curious No. 7, food from Savory Spoon, and two bottles of No. 8. Tour starts at 1 pm.

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Blueberries. Wine Barrel Aged.)
Availability: 16.9oz Bottles. Brewery release only.
Debut: 7/10/16

6.8% ABV

Triple C Kind of a Wild Deal, the breweries first wild

Triple C Kind of a Wild Deal

Triple C Kind of a Wild Deal is the Charlotte, North Carolina based brewery’s first bottled wild ale.

The base beer for Triple C Kind of a Wild Deal is an imperial honey wheat ale, that was aged in bourbon barrels. Later in the process, the barrels were pitched with Brettanomyces Bruxelles yeast, plus a healthy dose of blueberries.

But wait – there’s more. There are actually three other bourbon barrel variations of the beer coming, including Ginger Boysenberry, Blood Orange and Strawberry.  All three will see limited distribution.

Not done yet. Triple C is doing yet another variation in rum barrels with mango.

This bad boy rolls in late to the party at an impressive 9.2% ABV, obnoxiously triple parks his Miata, and immediately begins downing drinks. After grabbing your girlfriend’s butt and double dipping the guac, you decide it’s time for him to go. Upon approach, you unfortunately notice his silk robe is a few inches too loose, you lose it and scream “You’ve got to go”. He shakes away from your grasp and exclaims “I don’t know how to put this, but… I’m kind of a big deal!”

Triple C Kind of a Wild Deal will be a 22 ounce bottle offering in late July, 2016.

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Blueberries. Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft. Limited Release.
Debut: Late July, 2016

9.2% ABV

Duclaw Funk makes seasonal appearance

Duclaw Funk

Duclaw Funk, the brewery’s blueberry citrus wheat ale is back on shelves again in 2016.

The traditional American Wheat Ale serves as a solid baseline, but we couldn’t be content until we tore the roof off this sucker! Funk, our Blueberry Citrus Wheat Ale, sets the rhythm with a soulful fusion of American wheat and hops, before unleashing a stunning encore with big notes of blueberry and Meyer lemon. It’s no jive, you’ll just dig it!

Duclaw Funk is available in 12oz bottles and draft. The beer will be available at all Duclaw locations as of late March.

Style: Fruit Beer (w/ Blueberries, Lemons)
