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 2021

4.2% ABV

NoDa Gordgeous is available in 16-ounce cans (4 packs) and draft as an early fall seasonal.
