Creature Comforts Brewing Co. | Athena Paradiso

February 22, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

ABV: 4.5%

I hadn’t done much research on what to expect before I tried Creature Comforts Brewing Company’s  Athena Paradiso, so color me surprised when I poured it out and it was a deep red color. (Color me surprised – get it? Haha. Seriously guys. Funny stuff). Paradiso is a fruit treated version of Athena, Creature Comforts year-round Berliner weisse, brewed with tart cherries, raspberries and cranberries. I don’t know if it’s just because of the proximity to the day, but this beer definitely tasted just like Valentine’s Day – a little sweet and a little sour. I guess it’s something to try when you’re not quite sure what you’re in the mood for. Read More

Valentine’s Day fell this week, and I have reaffirmed my love for beer. It is the sun to my moon and the surf to my turf. I mean my kids and lady are great, too, but have you tried beer?
