Athens to Athens Grist to Grist
Smoked Barleywine style ale aged in bourbon barrels
In February of 2017 we embarked on an adventurous journey from Athens, Ohio to Athens, Georgia with our friends at Creature Comforts. Not only do we share the same hometown name, we also share the spirit of collaboration and discovery through experience. In Athens, OH we brewed a smoked barleywine style ale inspired by the Adambeirs of Dortmunder, Germany. After a year of resting in Bourbon barrels, a beer rich in caramel, stone fruit, and light smoke notes emerged. Look for the Creature Comforts’ collaborative beer later this year, brewed in Athens, GA!
