Five months after it was bottled, Creature Comforts Brewing Co. will be releasing a collaboration beer it brewed with Austin-based Jester King Brewery.
The beer is named Mutualism, a 5.5 percent ABV “southern-style” farmhouse pilsner that is brewed using local wheat and grits sourced from Danielsville, Ga.‐based DaySpring Farms. After brewing, the finished beer then “underwent secondary fermentation with a blend of both Creature Comforts’ and Jester King’s house- mixed cultures of yeast and bacteria” before being bottle conditioned for five months.
“We both have a strong admiration for beers that represent a time and a place, so from the beginning we wanted to merge our house flavors to represent our places coming together and the South,” said Blake Tyers, wood cellar and specialty brand manager at Creature Comforts, in a post on the Athens, Ga.-based brewery’s website. “We decided to blend our house mixed cultures and also use grits, sourced from local Georgia DaySpring Farms, to represent a staple in Southern homes.”
According to a post on Creature Comfort’s website, Mutualism is packaged in 750ml bottles and will be released during an event at the brewery on July 14.
