Our first collaboration with 7venth Sun Brewery, Southerly Love, will make its return this January. The limited offering will be re-released on draft and in 750mL bottles at the brewery in our Tasting Room.
Southerly Love is an American Wild Ale that comes in at 6.4% abv. The 2017 release of the beer features Idaho 7, Cascade and Crystal hops. The aroma is complex and full of ripe papaya, tangerine and a light, yeasty funk. The flavor is characterized by a balanced acidity and tropical fruit notes.
“We used a solid dose of funky, tropical and aromatic hops, both in the brewhouse and as a dry hop, to add complexity and intrigue to the beer,” said Adam Beauchamp, our Co-Founder and Brewmaster. “The result was a synthesis of yeast and hop flavors, melded into a balanced, cohesive and just plain delicious beer.”
The beer was originally brewed in June 2014 as our first collaboration beer shortly after opening the brewery in April 2014. We chose Dunedin, Florida’s 7venth Sun to work with on the collaborative brew.
“Brewing with friends is one of the most rewarding parts of my job,” said Beauchamp. “Justin and Devon of 7venth Sun are passionate and talented brewers who I also consider to be a couple of my best friends, so naturally we chose to work with them for our first collaboration project.”
The label artwork is a nod to the hoppiness of the beer and was designed by University of Georgia Scientific Illustration Student Katie Schmidt.
Southerly Love will be available on-site at Creature Comforts on January 17. For more information on 7venth Sun Brewery visit www.7venthsun.com. Be sure to check back here and on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages for more details & updates on the event.
