Celebrate Cherry Street Brewing Co-Op’s Anniversary!

Exactly a year ago, I made a troop out to this Cumming, Georgia-based brewery named Cherry Street Brewing Cooperative and was welcomed with open arms. It was a pleasure trying their delicious brews and hearing the motivating stories on how they got started. Trust me, it was a quite a process, but with their dedication, politicking, determination and devoted friends in their corner, everything paid off. A really big shout out goes out to Boss Man Jonny Bradley, plus inventive brewers Johnny Bradley and Dan Reingold for being instrumental is adding another great beer establishment to Georgia’s portfolio.
Below is information direct from Nick regarding the “little” anniversary party Cherry Street is throwing at their brewery tonight featuring some classic brews, new releases, and seasonals for those in attendance to sip. Oh yeah, and limited edition t-shirts are available for sale as well. Give 'em a call for any questions at (770) 205-5512. They usually close at 10 pm but tonight may be different.

Anniversary Ales: Try All Three for $12
12.12.12 – 12 percent ABV
12 Malts 12 Hops 12% Aged for 12 Months      
Since we were officially approved for legal brewing on December 12, 2012, we decided to make a beer to commemorate this joyous occasion. This barleywine has 12 different malts, included 21% Rye malt, 12 different hops, and weighs in at 12%. This will be a yearly beer release. Yes you guessed, on December 12th every year.

Balzac the Invincible – 9.5% ABV                                      
Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout with Coffee & Chocolate
The brewers may consider this the Holy Grail of beers brewed so far in 1 year. A rich and complex stout aged for 6 months in a George Dickel Whisky Barrel with copious amounts of chocolate and Sumatran Coffee. A better Breakfast Stout.

Oak Aged Dylan’s Dubbel – 7.5%                            
Our friends up at Troy & Sons Moonshine in Asheville, NC gave us a barrel to have fun with. We decided to age our Pub Favorite in it. After 3 months, what we got is a wonderfully enhanced Dylan’s with excellent oak and vanilla character and a nice warming finish.

Seasonal Brews
Naughty or Spice Saison – 6.2%                                 
Fundraiser: Special Olympics Forsyth County
Special Olympics Forsyth County has been here locally for over 20 years. They conduct many events throughout the year; including the Battle of the Bats in September and a 5k Run in November. This beer is our favorite beer throughout the year. We took our Dirty Frenchman Belgian Saison and added Colorado Spruce Tips to create a wonderfully aromatic and spicy Winter Belgian Ale.

D.E.C.O.S – 8.2% Double Espresso Chocolate Oatmeal Stout 
This beer is brewed with plenty of locally roasted coffee, ample amounts of imported dark chocolate, and oats to create a deliciously, decadent beer that you won’t forget.

Belgian Dark Strong – 8.8%                                 
This full bodied Belgian Dark Strong has great malt complexity and an elevated ABV with intense notes of dates, figs, and currants, which come from using a yeast from the Trappist monasteries of Belgium. A great Winter Warmer Belgian Ale.

Harvest Series
Chief Sawnee’s Stash Coconut Porter – 6%                    
Back by Popular Demand! We take our Sawnee Mtn. Porter and add toasted coconut flakes, caramelized dates, and fresh vanilla bean to the fermentation. A Must Have!

710 Experimental Series
Hoppy Balboa vs. Apollo Green Double IPA – 8.8%      
This heavy weight contender weighs in at 8.8% and packs a punch. Smack full of Apollo, Summit, Falconer’s, and Citra hops. Great tropical notes all the way through.

Irish Red I Jedeye
Ta Ta Cream Ale
Dylan's Dubbel
West LA Hopaway IPA
Monkey Hammer Hefeweizen
