Athens, GA – Creature Comforts Brewing Company will bring back its popular seasonal, Automatic pale ale, this August. The beer will be available on draft and in 6-packs of 12-ounce cans in both the Athens and Atlanta markets.
Automatic is a modern pale ale with an ABV of 5.5-percent 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 flavor mirrors the aroma with a bit more earthiness and stone fruit, leading to a nicely balanced and moderately bitter finish.
“Automatic is meant to be light, refreshing and quite drinkable without falling into the common pitfall of ending up too thin, watery or insipid,” said Brewmaster Adam Beauchamp. “No color malts were used, however, the relatively full mouthfeel is enough to support this heavily hopped beer.”
The brewery collaborated with a local artist to design the can label. Athens painter, Michelle Fontaine, was inspired by 1950s American popular culture as well as the origin of Creature Comforts’ facility – a former 1940s Chevy dealership and later the Snow Tire Company. The label depicts a classic automotive theme.
Automatic will be available onsite at the brewery mid-August as well as in the Athens and Atlanta markets shortly following the onsite release. For more information about Creature Comforts visit www.creaturecomfortsbeer.com.
