Wild Heaven Beer (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially announced that it will introduce a new series of fruited variants of its wildly-popular Emergency Drinking Beer with the late January release of Emergency Drinking Beer – Citrus Blend.
Recognizing the success and popularity of Wild Heaven’s long-standing Emergency Drinking Beer – “a 4.4% ABV pilsner-style beer with sea salt and lemongrass” – and the 2018 release of Emergency Drinking Beer – Watermelon Blend in cans, retailers and partners have steadily reached out to the brewery over time to request additional variants of Emergency Drinking Beer. Happy to oblige such requests, Wild Heaven has answered those calls with the establishment of an expanded Emergency Drinking Beer Seasonal Series in 2019. This year’s variants are as follows (descriptions sourced directly from Wild Heaven’s press release):
- Emergency Drinking Beer – Citrus Blend | Winter 2019 – Adds fresh lime juice along with both white grapefruit (for complexity) and Ruby Red grapefruit (for sweetness) juice
- Emergency Drinking Beer – Tropical Blend | Spring 2019 – Incorporates passionfruit, mango and pineapple juices
- Emergency Drinking Beer – Watermelon Blend | Summer 2019 – Famously made by hand in our brewery as we hand cut and juice thousands of watermelons all summer
- Emergency Drinking Beer – Berry Blend | Fall 2019 – Features acai, cranberry and other seasonal berries for autumn-time refreshment
Emergency Drinking Beer – Citrus Blend will begin rolling out in late January and is scheduled to hang around throughout the winter months. You can expect to find this Seasonal brew available in 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Georgia. The original version of Emergency Drinking Beer will continue to be available Year-Round throughout Wild Heaven’s distribution footprint. Prost!

- Watermelon Emergency Drinking Beer – Based on Emergency Drinking Beer, Watermelon Emergency Drinking Beer . . . requires the Wild Heaven team to hand-cut and juice hundreds of watermelons. The fresh, bright red juice is added to the beer to deliver true watermelon taste without any overt sweetness or artificial flavor notes. ABV – 4%
