“The idea of a Table Beer is not new, and in fact it is practically the genesis for beer,” says our Co-founder and CEO Chris Herron. “Our goal was to design a beer that serves as a complement to food rather than a distraction – something unpretentious, that is meant to simply be enjoyed with friends around the dinner table.”
Subtle Alchemy is a series of continuously evolving expressions from our wood cellar. Each blend is unique in its parts and singular in the moment in time it is created. The flavors expressed will follow the ebbs and flows of our barrel program.
It’s that time again! We are excited to release Athena Paradiso with passion fruit and guava (4.5%) on draft as well as in 12oz cans late August. Athena Paradiso is our fruited treatment of Athena, our year-round Berliner Weisse.
Automatic is a modern pale ale (5.2%abv) that features a prominent hop flavor and aroma. A mix of Mosaic and Crystal hops are used to create a delicate balance and give the beer an aroma that features a complex array of berry, citrus, herbal, and pine notes.
The sale of craft breweries to AB InBev is becoming more and more common, and just like anything, the more common something becomes, the more normal it starts to feel, and the more people start to wonder, does it really matter? It all depends on why the craft breweries are being bought by AB InBev, and I think the answer is much more complicated, if conservative, than we realize...
We are so fortunate to be able to extend our tour hours for our Tasting Room starting in May! From now on we will be open one hour later on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, and will now be open on Sundays from 1-6PM! We thank Athens and the surrounding areas for supporting us these last three years so that we can get to the point of being open longer and therefore giving more guests the chance to attend our educational tours and try our brews. Cheers!
“Cosmik Debris should always be kept cold and consumed as fresh as possible,” says our Co-Founder and Brewmaster Adam Beauchamp. “Allowing it to age would lessen the brilliant, fresh aroma that we worked to infuse into the beer.”

Koko Buni is our milk porter (6.8%) brewed with toasted coconut, cocoa nibs, coffee and vanilla. The flavors are rich and velvety – perfect for cooler days and evenings. As with most of our brews, a key characteristic of Koko Buni is balance in flavor. None of the flavors are overpowering or fatiguing on the palate.
“Transmission is the result of two breweries who have the same vision in mind: to represent craft beer on a local level, using artists’ passion and to be completely dedicated to the craft,” said Arizona Wilderness Founder Jon Buford. “Oh, and to have a ton of fun while doing it.”
“Automatic is meant to be light, refreshing and quite drinkable without falling into the common pitfall of ending up too thin, watery or insipid. No color malts were used, however, the relatively full mouthfeel is enough to support this heavily hopped beer,” - Co‐Founder and Brewmaster Adam Beauchamp.
