Creature Comforts Brewing Co. makes great beer; they also make great beer with a purpose. Their recent initiative, Get Artistic Tart Wheat beer, is a fitting testament to this two-pronged approach. Announced earlier this summer, the Get Artistic beer is part of a larger campaign aimed at finding “creative ways to add value the local arts community” in Athens, Georgia. The kicker: 100% of the profits from the beer and its corresponding flashy merchandise will go towards funding the dreams, endeavors, and passions of local artists. Sounds like a win-win to me. Here’s my review.
Since I’m writing this on International Women’s Day, I would be remiss if I didn’t thank all of my strong, creative female colleagues at PorchDrinking. Without them, this humble beer blog would be but a shadow of itself. Their hard work and dedication keeps this train on the tracks, and their fresh points of view help us keep our content fresh and relevant in an ever-changing world. I invite you all to raise a glass to them! Now, here’s some stuff I found on Twitter. This is The Weekly Buzz.
Athens, Georgia-based Creature Comforts Brewing Co. has made a name for itself through by creating artfully balanced beers. The beer they brew is not intended to be overpowering, but is instead focused on highlighting each element of the beer—in perfect unison. A testament to their mission is their popular winter seasonal, Koko Buni Milk Porter, which promises balanced notes of coffee, cocoa nibs and toasted coconut.
Welcome to this special double-edition of The Weekly Buzz. I had a work obligation that stopped me from posting last week, but fear not! I did manage to collect all the content, which is good because there was a LOT going on. Anyway… Here’s the best beer-related Twitter and Instagram content from the last two weeks. It’s time to start sipping on this special barrel-aged bottle of The Weekly Buzz!
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been so busy this week prepping and packing for my trip to Colorado! My boyfriend and I are planning on hitting multiple breweries on our road trip up and sharing that sweet California craft beer with them! Plus, we aren’t going to the beer-centric part of Colorado, but to Hotchkiss, which is closer to the border of Utah. I can’t wait to share some good beer with my family and relax! Pull on your most favorite blanket and check out What We’re Drinking.
This week was a bummer in a lot of ways. Houston is still reeling from Harvey, Florida got beat up by Irma and we remembered the anniversary of a devastating terrorist attack. You know what, though? We got through it. We’ll continue to get through it. Even though at times it may seem like we are kicking ourselves in the ass, we’ll find a way to make it right. Until that day, we will have America’s greatest coping mechanism at our disposal–beer. Crack open a fresh one, and get ready for The Weekly Buzz.
It’s been another long, hot week. Not only that, but it was a busy week in the world of craft beer. GABF tickets went on sale, we celebrated National IPA Day and one of this country’s oldest craft breweries was bought by Sapporo. As the weekend creeps towards us, we all need to sit back, take a deep breath and enjoy a delicious beer. While you do that, feel free to peruse this week’s edition of The Weekly Buzz.
The Atlanta Beer Beat sheds light on news of brewery openings, special tappings, firkins and one-off batches, bottle releases, dinners, pairings and more!
Another week has gone by and, as usual, the Twitter-verse has been awash with craft beer news and shenanigans. To be honest, it was mostly shenanigans. OK… it’s almost always shenanigans. Don’t worry, though. There are also a few event announcements, job listings and some sad legislation to balance things out. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is The Weekly Buzz.
Ugh. I just realized that I have to mow my lawn today. It is out of control. On the bright side, I get to enjoy a lawnmower beer (or 5). I suggest that you do not follow in my footsteps. Yard work is bull crap. Instead, you should sit on your porch, crack open a fresh beer and hope someone else mows it for you. You can even read this week’s edition of The Weekly Buzz. Reading tweets about beer is WAY more fun than pushing a lawnmower. If you follow this advice, you’ll be much happier (until your municipality fines you for the length of your grass).
How hard is it to assemble a top-notch recap of the week’s social media activity with three kids in the house? It’s very hard, but I NAILED it! This week we have a few events, some new beer, a few political statements and plenty of fun stuff, too. A buffet of beer news and shenanigans is laid out before you, and that can only mean one thing. This is The Weekly Buzz.
REJOICE! At long last, Creature Comforts Brewing Co. is making its move to expand into an additional facility in 2017 with the purpose of raising production (and possibly its footprint) in 2018. This news follows two years of steady growth as one of America’s fastest growing breweries and a zealous commitment to raise $100,000 for local community organizations. Creature Comfort’s future location of choice, the Southern Manufacturing Co. Mill, is no surprise to those who have followed the brewery over its short but influential career in Athens, Georgia.
Athens, Georgia – Creature Comforts Brewing Co. will launch their highly successful Get Comfortable campaign on November 16, 2016. The five month-long Get Comfortable campaign is led by the small brewery to help fight hunger, homelessness and poverty in our community of Athens, Georgia, where the poverty rate ranks fifth throughout the United States. This is a laborious and incredibly rewarding effort centered around one of the craft brewery’s founding core pillars – community – first organized back in 2014.
Creature Comforts Brewing Co. came together with family and friends to celebrate the successes of this season’s Get Comfortable campaign. Creature Comforts generated over $65,000 in charitable contributions with the help of local community organizers, businesses and volunteers. Get Comfortable proved to be a groundbreaking corporate level charity campaign that broke down many barriers while building community relationships that touched many lives through its 2015/2016 season.
Creature Comforts Brewing Co. experienced a milestone this month that was marked with a handful of firsts for the brewery. They bottled their first barrel aged stout, which was released at their first bottle release event that turned out to be their largest event since opening. The entire event was calculated with as much attention to the details as possible. The beer, See the Stars, was more than a year in the making. The patience, initiative and discipline to make all this happen shines through the brew it became.
