Monday Night Brewing (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially announced the limited release of Mischief Managed with Peaches, the newest project to come out the brewery’s Garage program.
Back for its second installment, Mischief Managed is Monday Night’s wine barrel-fermented Berliner Weisse series that mixes it up from release to release with new fruit additions. This batch features “a classically Georgia ingredient” – peaches from Jaemor Farms in North Georgia. After being introduced to “a whopping 75 pounds [of peaches] per barrel”, this release of Mischief Managed has come together to supply its drinker with “a clean, refreshing sour ale perfect for summer.”
“This Berliner Weisse recipe lends itself so well to fruit, and we really like to play with the recipe,” said brewmaster Peter Kiley. “The first batch with raspberries worked well, so it made total sense to try this batch with fresh peaches. They’re in season right now, and we were able to find a local farmer to work with, which is amazing.”
Mischief Managed with Peaches officially debuted at Monday Night’s Garage location on August 18 and will enter distribution the week of August 20. You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 500ml bottles and on draft at select craft beer establishments located within Monday Night’s distribution footprint in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. Prost!

Fun Fact – Background on the Mischief Managed Series: “The Mischief Managed series is about taking a base beer – in this case a wine barrel-fermented Berliner Weisse – and then doing something ‘mischievous’ to it such as adding a fresh fruit. Because the base beer is so delicate, the ‘mischief’ will always have to be ‘managed’ to keep flavors balanced and under control.”
