Mill Creek Brewing Co. (Nolensville, Tennessee) has announced that it will officially begin distribution in the state of Alabama beginning in April.
Established in 2014 with a motto of “Less Fuss. More Beer.”, the folks at Mill Creek Brewing Co. have developed a portfolio of “beers that are full of flavor, never overwhelming, and perfect for just about anything.” This was achieved by tweaking the recipes of traditional styles so that the brewers could infuse every ounce of their beer with nothing but easy-drinking refreshment. The Tennessee beer community has immediately taken to this “pure and simple” approach to craft brewing, and their support has allowed Mill Creek Brewing to steadily grow and even add a taproom to their 27,500 square foot facility this past February.
The next natural step for the brewery is to expand distribution, and they have chosen their neighbors to the south in Alabama to be their first distribution market outside of Tennessee. When the brewery arrives in Alabama next month, they will launch with the following four beers:
- Landmark Vintage Lager – MALTY. CLEAN. REFRESHING. Quality malted grain is the hero in this traditional German-style lager. Sparkling and smooth, it’s the perfect beer to help you cool off as you wipe the hard-earned sweat off your brow. ABV – 5% IBUs – 16
- Lil Darlin Citrus-Infused Wheat Beer – CITRUSY. SOFT. SWEET. The name says it all. Orange peel and coriander give this gem of a wheat beer a pleasant citrus touch. Smooth, light-bodied and refreshing, it’s delightfully complex yet satisfying. ABV – 4.5% IBUs – 11
- Silo Farmhouse Ale – SUNNY. SPICY. CRISP. This traditional Belgian farmhouse ale has a light malt backbone that gives it just enough sweetness for the fruity and spicy notes to stand out. Topped off with a hint of tartness, it’s a great beer for any occasion. ABV – 5.2% IBUs – 20
- Woodshed India Pale Ale – TROPICAL. CITRUSY. IRRESISTIBLE. Fair warning: This is one IPA you can’t stop drinking. Tropical and Citrusy hops give it a bold yet playful flavor while a malt backbone adds a tinge of sweetness to balance out the slight bitterness of the hops. ABV – 4.5% IBUs – 60
Beginning in April, the four beers above will be available in 12 oz. cans and on draft at craft beer establishments located in and around Birmingham, Huntsville, Montgomery, and Shelby County. Mill Creek Brewing Co. plans to eventually expand distribution into other areas of the state as the year goes on. The tentative plan is to be in the Mobile/Gulf Shores area by May, and in Auburn and Tuscaloosa by August. There are several events planned for the April launch, and
we are currently in the process of collecting those details they are now available below. We will have that event information posted shortly, so stay tuned to find out when and where you can give Mill Creek Brewing Co. a proper welcome to the great state of Alabama. Prost!
