A new release from Creature Comforts Brewing Co. is named after a famous landmark in the brewery’s home town of Athens, Ga.
The Tree That Owns Itself is a 12.5 percent ABV barleywine-style ale that was aged in bourbon barrels for “more than two years.” The name of the beer references a popular tree with an origin story wherein the owner named William H. Jackson decided to deed ownership of the tree and surrounding land to itself in order to protect it for future generations.
According to a post on Creature Comforts website, The Tree That Owns Itself will be packaged in 750ml bottles ($24.99) and will have a two bottle per person purchase limit when it is released on Sept. 14.
