SECOND SELF 6TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION BRINGS TWO BIG RELEASES

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 10/22/20

Second Self Beer Company

Thursday, October 29th thru Saturday, October 31st

Join us as we celebrate our 6th year anniversary with two new beers and a beer/candy pairing all week!
Manic Pixie Dream Beer #2 (12% ABV) is an American Barleywine aged in wet high rye bourbon barrels. It follows Second Self’s highly acclaimed Manic Pixie Dream Beer #1 in 2017, but it certainly deserves its own spotlight. With forward oak and spice nose and caramel and vanilla notes deriving from the malt and barrel used to brew it, Manic Pixie Dream Beer #2 is a slow-sipper that opens as it warms up. Hints of sweet, dark cherry lighten the overall body of the beer, creating a slightly boozy finish.
According to the Second Self team, “although it feels like we’re all living in an alternate universe right now, at least we still have good beer.” Malternate Universe (9% ABV) pours a rich amber color with a nice tan head. Sweet aromas of caramel, brown sugar and English toffee give the decadent beer a full mouthfeel with tons of flavor. Tasting notes include fig, raisin and molasses.
Information on the beer release here.

ATLANTA INSTITUTIONS 680 THE FAN AND WILD HEAVEN BEER TEAM UP FOR “FANFARE” COLLABORATIVE BEER PROJECT

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 10/20/20

Mixed Six-Packs of Craft Beer & Hard Seltzer Launch This Week

In a year when sports fans can’t gather in their usual ways, Atlanta’s leading sports talk radio station, 680 The Fan  and Wild Heaven Beer one of Georgia’s oldest and most respected craft breweries, have teamed up with those fans in mind. Releasing at Wild Heaven’s two taproom locations and in stores next week, Fanfare is a pair of mixed-six packs of beer and hard seltzer created to help fans celebrate wherever they can safely gather.

Each Fanfare six-pack contains two each of a Classic American IPA, a Golden Ale, and a Mango Hard Seltzer. Retailing for just $10.99, each of the three can designs call to mind the region’s great sports teams.

680 The Fan invites listeners and fans to use the QR code on each can to vote for their favorite of the three. A special release party with a live broadcast from Wild Heaven’s West End Brewery & Gardens will take place on Saturday, October 24, from 11am-2pm featuring 680 The Fan’s Former UGA quarterback Hutson Mason and Georgia Tech and College Football Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Hamilton. Fanfare will be available at both Wild Heaven taproom locations beginning Friday, October 23.

Mixed six-packs will be available at retailers around the Atlanta metro area starting Wednesday, October 28th. A second Fanfare mixed six-pack will release in November featuring a Modern IPA, an Amber Ale, and a Black Cherry Hard Seltzer.

After fan voting concludes, one of the six Fanfare recipes will be chosen for broader distribution in 2021, so 680 The Fan’s on-air hosts and Wild Heaven Beer are calling on Atlanta fans to make their voices heard!
