This stellar brewery is releasing Booger Hill, DaySpring, and Golden Door limited 750-mL bottles on the 24th!
As many of you know, I am a huge fan of Creature Comforts out of Athens, GA, because they are not only one of the best breweries in the state or even the South, but in the nation. It doesn’t hurt that they have some really good people working for them. Well for those who are also CC believers, I am happy to announce that they have a major bottle release to the third power on Friday, November 24th directly at the brewery’s Tasting Room along with the launch of their Bottle Service. It’s going to be their Booger Hill barrel-aged biere de garde at 7.8%; the DaySpring grisette (5.3%); and Golden Door oak barrel-aged, mixed fermentation saison at 6.7% in limited 750-mL bottles. This whole trio should be dope. Go pop ‘em and find out!
The official release and descriptions are here and below straight from Creature.
Bottle Release Day 2017
We hope you will join us in our Tasting Room for our Bottle Release Day on November 24th, 2017. We will be releasing several bottles to-go as well as for onsite consumption. We are looking forward to sharing these special projects with you. For more information about the beers, check below.
Booger Hill is a barrel-aged biere de garde (7.8%) made with local honey from Booger Hill Bee Company. Booger Hill will serve as the second release from our Locally Grown Series, a series we use to showcase local ingredients sourced from farms in and surrounding Athens, GA. This beer was made over the course of 2.5 years and incorporated the disgorging process – a technique commonly used when making sparkling wine.
DaySpring is a grisette (5.3%) made with local wheat from DaySpring Farms. We first released DaySpring (2015) just a year after opening the brewery, and it was the first release from our Locally Grown Series. The 2015 release was the first time we sourced wheat from our friends at DaySpring Farms and we’ve now sourced their grains for several of our beers.
Golden Door is an oak barrel-aged, mixed fermentation saison (6.7%). Golden door is an expression of our house-mixed culture of yeast and bacteria – the backbone of our barrel program – and time. The flavor of this beer is driven by its time aging in wood.
These three limited offerings will be available at the brewery starting on November 24. In addition, we will also launch our bottle service on the 24th for onsite consumption of limited and vintage bottle offerings.
