This American amber lager celebrates our grassroots beginning on the Southside. We first brewed this beer in 2005 at our East Point home brewery. It was one of our original and most cherished recipes. It was developed with a simple American grain bill to produce a profile which is light enough for Summer and hearty enough for Winter. This style offers a malty foundation with a distinct color and a hint of caramel from the old-world techniques used in the brewing process. We add noble hops to create balance and a mild spicy bitterness. It was born on the Southside. ABV: 5.4%
Pronounced "Queen's Vice", this traditional Hefeweizen is a flavorful light-bodied ale that is designed on a Bavarian water profile. The high wheat content gives it crispness, a cloudy pale yellow color, and the noble hops contribute to the subtle bitterness. The star is the yeast, one of the oldest strains in the world, which undergoes a stressing process to give bright clove and banana flavors, with a subtle pink bubble gum aftertaste. ABV: 5.2%
This deep Belgian pale with a traditional pilsner malt character and slight toasted biscuit notes. Dark fruity Belgian esters are complemented by exotic coconut, clove and vanilla captured from the introduction of exotic Peruvian wood. A subtle yet complex beer for the discerning palate. ABV: 6.8%
The Vienna lager was reborn in the 19th century when Napoleon III conquered Mexico. He brought an influx of European brewers to the continent, reintroducing the style with great success. The style is defined by its malt profile. Designed on Vienna water, it offers an aesthetically pleasing amber hue from the kilned Vienna malt providing a nutty, smooth flavor. Light noble hop bitterness takes a back seat to the character of the malt. Little yeast character is contributed for a clean, dry finish. ABV: 5.2%
A craft light lager pairing flavor and substance. This crisp contemporary light lager is the perfect beer for Georgia's blazing summer. It's brewed with a healthy portion of flaked corn and a late addition of Callista Hops that provide notes of sweet corn and fresh peaches. If America had a flavor, this would be it. ABV: 3.8%
Meteorological visibility refers to the transparency of air. Fortunately for us, we’re not piloting aircrafts during low visibility advisories like so many of our friends in the Atlanta Airport District. Low Viz is our take on one of the preeminent trends in craft beer -- the hazy IPA. We blended three “juicy” hop varieties to produce notes of tropical fruit, orange, and cotton candy. A healthy addition of flaked oats and malted wheat result in a cloudy appearance and pillowy-soft mouthfeel. Drink now before it disappears. ABV: 6.7%
Available on draft and six-pack cans.

The Baltic porter, an enchanted style that originated in the Baltic States in the 18th century. This unique style combines the bold flavor of an English Porter and richness of a Russian Imperial Stout. It is the only porter that is a lager, as cold fermentation was necessary to preserve it during the long voyage across the Baltic Sea. This strong style boasts a roasty, caramel profile accompanied by mild chocolate undertones. It pairs very well with powerful meats, particularly game, and other hearty Nordic cuisines. ABV: 8.0%
This traditional German lager originated in the 14th-century and was lagered in caves through Winter to be consumed to celebrate the coming of Spring. The strong, sweet malt character is the hallmark of the style, complemented by a deep amber color. The malt character is balanced by a slight hop bitterness that allows the toasted grain and caramel flavors to shine through. ABV: 7.2%
In 1838, after nearly 600 years of inconsistent and poor quality beer, the people of Pilsen (an old Bohemian town) began an upheaval throughout the city, dumping full barrels in the streets to show their dissatisfaction. The city officials formed a city-owned brewery that would begin brewing only bottom-fermented beers. Lagers were born. This classic style is built on a simple grain bill, brewed with traditional lager ingredients delivering a clean, light-bodied style. Noble hops add slight bitterness while allowing the distinctive spicy and piney aroma characteristics to show through. With a crisp, dry finish, this style is best enjoyed in warm temperatures. ABV: 5.3%
This porter was designed as an entrance to Winter. It's roasty characteristics and medium body is complimented coffee and chocolate tones. The addition of lactose leaves some unfermentable sugars which balance out the roast with residual sweetness and smooth mouthfeel. This style fits perfect alongside a hearty Fall or early-Winter meal. ABV: 6.0%
This traditional lager was designed to celebrate the coming of harvest in Munich. The nutty, sweet malt character serves as a hearty base in this beer. The spicy yet elegant hop character balances the malt body and provides a sharp bitterness before a clean finish. ABV: 6.3%
Munich Dunkel is a culture-defining style that has been brewed for over five centuries. This traditional European dark lager is characterized by a striking dark color and a strong malt flavor.

Heritage is important here in the south. We are fiercely proud of our landscape, culture, food, and music. For Heritage, our aptly-named Helles-style Lager, we wanted to keep the recipe close to home. The beer’s grain bill consists of only one grain, 6-row barley pilsner malt, sourced from Riverbend Malt House in Riverbend, NC. Riverbend’s mission is to provide craft brewers with locally-farmed, artisan malts that bring depth and character to their passion, while greatly lessening the local industry’s impact on the planet. Their 6-row is slightly undermodified and kilned at a lower temperature than other malts, producing a grassy, grainy flavor perfect for this Helles-style lager. ABV: 4.8%
Built on a traditional Schwarzbier base, this German dark lager blends light notes of roast and chocolate with a citrus and floral bouquet. An aggressive hop profile featuring three American hop varieties provides just enough bitterness to balance the beer’s signature roast character. While dark in color, Black Gold drinks incredibly light at a sessionable 5.3% ABV.
