Monday Night Brewing Introduces Fistful of Cake – Chocolate Orange Imperial Stout

Cake-insta-canMonday Night Brewing (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially announced that it will release Fistful of Cake – Chocolate Orange Imperial Stout, the latest Limited Release from the brewery’s Black Tie Series, on June 7.

Arriving as the second installment in Monday Night’s newly-established Fistful of Cake sub-series of dessert-themed beers, Fistful of Cake – Chocolate Orange is an Imperial Milk Stout that “embodies the decadence of chocolate, but tempered with the aroma of fresh orange peels and Vietnamese cinnamon.”  Although it weighs in at a substantial 9% ABV, Fistful of Cake – Chocolate Orange Imperial Stout has a citrus burst that is just big enough to convince you that summer can be a Stout Season too.

“Brewing a stout to drink in the summertime can be a little tricky,” said brewmaster Peter Kiley. “With this round of Fistful of Cake, we wanted to make something that would pair well with desserts, but wouldn’t be so overly sweet that it would feel too heavy.”

Fistful of Cake – Chocolate Orange Imperial Stout will officially debut in Monday Night Brewing’s West Midtown taproom on Friday, June 7 at 4 p.m. (cans can be reserved by clicking here) and distribution is scheduled to follow shortly after the on-site release.  You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 16 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located within Monday Night’s distribution footprint in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee.  Prost!

Monday Night Brewing Sends Out a Little Reminder: Don’t Call It Hotlanta DIPA

mnbhotlantastudioMonday Night Brewing (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially announced that it is celebrating this weekend’s “Big Game” with the Limited Release of Don’t Call It Hotlanta Quadruple Dry-Hopped IPA.  

Back to once again claim its place in Monday Night’s Black Tie Series of limited release offerings, Don’t Call It Hotlanta is an unfiltered Double India Pale Ale that has been dry-hopped four times with Columbus, Citra and Galaxy hops.  This insane hop treatment yields an experience “that pops with tropical notes on the nose, drinks dank, and finishes with a bit of bitterness.”  Clearly created to send a message, Don’t Call It Hotlanta flexes its warning with 8.5% ABV and 55 IBUs.

“It’s become kind of a joke for people who live in Atlanta. Everyone here has a friend or relative who calls our city ‘Hotlanta.’ It’s one of those cringe-worthy nicknames that nobody ever uses except out-of-towners. So we brewed this beer as a not-so-subtle way for locals to get the point across.”

 

– Joel Iverson, Co-Founder of Monday Night Brewing

Don’t Call It Hotlanta is officially available now and will stick around as long as supplies last.  You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-friendly retailers, bars and restaurants located within Monday Night’s distribution footprint in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. Prost!

Monday Night Brewing Offers ‘Don’t Call It Hotlanta’ as Both a Warning & Limited Release

MNBDCIHpour_editedMonday Night Brewing (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially released Don’t Call It Hotlanta Quadruple Dry-Hopped IPA as the newest offering to come out of its Black Tie Series.

With a name inspired by the ire that so many Atlanta natives have for their city’s unfortunate nickname, Don’t Call It Hotlanta is a quadruple dry-hopped (Columbus, Citra and Galaxy hops), cloudy Double India Pale Ale “that pops with tropical notes on the nose, drinks dank, and finishes with a bit of bitterness—much like an Atlanta sports fan.”  Since this beer weighs in at a “bridge-collapsing” 8.5% ABV, the brewery claims that Don’t Call It Hotlanta is best enjoyed “after your hour-long evening commute.”

Don’t Call It Hotlanta officially debuted in Monday Night’s West Midtown location on April 29 and will begin hitting distribution this week.  You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 4-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer establishments located within the brewery’s distribution area in Alabama and Georgia.  Prost!
