Creature Comforts Brewing Co. (Athens, Georgia) has announced that Reclaimed Rye will join the brewery’s portfolio of canned Year-Round offerings in mid-February.
Developed as Creature Comforts Brewing Co.’s attempt to “reclaim” the Amber Ale style, Reclaimed Rye (5.5% ABV) is “a uniquely complex and full-flavored amber ale that the brewery ages on French oak.” The French Oak works with the beer’s malted and flaked rye to create “a well-rounded body, with notes of toasted bread, spice, and subtle vanilla.” Reclaimed Rye now joins Tropicália American IPA, Athena Berliner Weisse, and Bibo Pilsner as the fourth year-round offering from Creature Comforts to be made available in cans.
“We have wanted Reclaimed Rye in cans for three years,” said Creature Comforts Co-founder and CEO Chris Herron. “It is a favorite beer around the brewery and in the market, but capacity constraints have kept it as a draft only offering. With our capacity increase coming from our new brewery, the wait is finally over and cans of Reclaimed Rye will finally be a real thing!”
Cans of Reclaimed Rye will officially release onsite at Creature Comforts Brewing Co. on February 17, and distribution will follow shortly thereafter. You can expect to find Reclaimed Rye available in 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer establishments located within the brewery’s distribution footprint of Athens and Atlanta, Georgia. Prost!

Fun Fact – On the naming of Reclaimed Rye: “The beer was named with the brewers’ intentions in mind of shedding new light on the amber style – reclaiming it back from the ordinary. In addition, the name is a nod to the wood that was reclaimed to make up the bars, picnic tables and paneled walls in the brewery’s tasting room. Local woodworkers, Oneta, designed and built the reclaimed wood additions to Creature Comforts’ tasting room.”
