Every year, Creature Comforts Brewing Co. partners with a new brewery to create a collaborative beer as a part of its Get Comfortable community impact program. During the 2021 season, the brewery collaborated with Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. to brew a Double IPA celebrating the breweries’ shared appreciation for Citra hops. Starting with the 2020 Get Comfortable season, Creature Comforts introduced a second collaborative beer release with its Get Comfortable brewery partner called A Force For Good. A Force For Good will be available this December as Creature Comforts wraps up the 2021 Get Comfortable season.
This year’s A Force For Good collaboration beer is made with Sierra Nevada. Borrowing from the philosophies of both barrel programs, the breweries created a Jamaican rum barrel-aged Imperial Brown Ale (12.8% ABV) with Brazilian Amburana wood. After conditioning on the Amburana wood, this beautiful beer presents warming notes of cinnamon, caramel, allspice, and nutmeg. As a part of the Get Comfortable collaboration, 100-percent of the profits from the beer will go toward Get Comfortable, which is a year-round outreach program designed to channel the generosity of many toward the Athens, GA community’s most pressing needs.
“Working with Sierra Nevada to craft a beer out of our barrel program has been a dream,” said Blake Tyers, Creature Comforts Senior Director Catalyst Division. “When starting the process, we shared beers over Zoom meetings to review each other’s barrel-aged beers and discuss fundamental philosophies that govern our programs. Sierra’s experience pushed us out of our comfort zone with barrel selection, and I like to think our experience with adjuncts and intense flavor design brought a nice collaborative result.”
A Force For Good will be available in 4-pack 16-ounce cans from Creature Comforts taproom on December 15.
