    Emergence is a blonde ale aged in a variety of wine barrels. Releases at the brewery next Saturday (March 5).

    This will also be at Hunaday for those going.

    Sounds tasty for sure, and since I have a better chance at it in Florida than I do in GA.

    Looking forward to the glassware and additional taps. I'm sure there will be plenty of solid stuff on

    They had it at Edmund's Oast Friday night and also (I believe) at Brewvival yesterday.

    Very good; great brewery!

    What time do you think you will have to arrive to guarantee a spot?

    They're open from 11-6 and said they have a good number of bottles so I imagine almost any time will be fine.

    They're not even close to supplying Georgia yet, so I wouldn't count on it anytime too soon.

    Seriously. We can't even get saturation in metro Atlanta, out of State shipping is years away.

    You act like one thing is contingent on the other. They are actually mutually exclusive. Cigar City was shipping to New York long before they distributed to most of Florida. Due South brewing out of Boynton Beach has done the same thing. Skipped distribution on the gulf coast of Florida and decided to distribute out of state instead.

    The difference is that it would not make sense to skip Atlanta for South Carolina vs what CCB did in skipping Pensacola for NYC, it has to be put in perspective

    Exactly, and it's not that they are skipping over Atlanta, it's just that they can't keep up with demand. I assume we are talking about Tropicalia here as I live in Middle Georgia and Athena is ALWAYS on the shelves.

    Sadly, the entire east coast of Florida was still complaining about stock shortages of flagship Jai Alai when CCB started distributing to NY. And Due South skipped the largest craft beer market in the state to go north. We could've really used a solid canned DIPA in the area and their Cat 5 would've fit the bill. Point is sometimes a businesses decisions don't make sense to the consumer. I hope for your sake they do fully saturate ATL before moving on. And I hope for my sake, Due South reconsiders and comes to the gulf coast.

    I may have missed it but was there any announcement on bottle count and limits for Saturday?

    You can only take home two 750ml bottles per person.

    With 1400 count they will not run out tomorrow with GA dumb laws. 2 bottles per person. Now if this was in NC or a lot of other states it would be GONE.

    That is a lot of bottles, but I wouldn't bet my life that they don't run out. CC is packed on any given day, and this release will have people driving from all over the state (at least).

    I get that. I will be coming from Atlanta. But I am not going to rush and wait in a line to get in. All I am saying.

    Exactly. I don't know what their fire limit capacity is, but I'd think they'd have to be pretty close to filling that place for the bottles to run out.

    I'm secretly hoping no one shows up, and it's a nice relaxing day.

    Smooth bottle release, arrived at 3 pm, good crowd, no line to get in. Had my samples, attended a tour, and got bottle of Emergence to go. Nice to hear they plan to can Cosmik Debris in the spring (appr 6000 cases per the tour guide).

    Very smooth. Got in a little after noon with no wait in line. This years batch of Cosmik Debris is amazing. Super dry. Loved it.

    Just curious where in Middle Ga are you? I'm in SW GA where we do not get Creature Comforts but do make occasional trips to Macon/WR & would like to pick some up when in the area.

    I actually live in Cordele, GA but I work on Robins AFB in Warner Robins. Galaxy Spirits in WR ALWAYS has Athena on the shelves. They even had Koko Buni sitting on the shelf for more than a month. I picked up a 4 pack of Athena Paradiso in there last Friday and they get Tropicalia pretty regularly too. If you need directions, shoot me a PM.

    Thanks, I'm from WR originally so I do know where Galaxy Spirits is. I had a feeling that you were talking about Galaxy. Will have to take a ride up there this weekend. Not too far from you in Lee County. Thanks

    No problem. I buy a sixer of Athena almost every time I go in there. The owner will actually call me every time they get Tropicalia in and hold a sixer for me. He just got in the Terrapin Single Origin Coffee Stout last Friday. $13.99 a 4 pack. Not a bad price considering Just Tap'd is charging $4.70 per bottle.

    I bought a 4 pack of the Terrapin Single Origin Coffee Stout last Friday myself in Albany. Drank 2 already, the Guatemala & Sumatra, delicious!

    I picked up a 4 pack on Friday myself. I enjoyed them all but they are just a bit thin IMO. Especially considering the $13.99 price tag for a 5.7% stout... Of the 4, I enjoyed the Guatemalan one the best. It had a bit of a peppery taste to it.

    I know this is an emergence thread, but on my snapchat this afternoon Creature Comforts was labeling and putting six pack rings on a collab beer with Other Half called The King's Ransom. It's a Baltic porter, that I believe the can said was 10%. Anyone heard anything about this?

    Creature Comforts needs a dedicated thread. Seems like all the information (distro, releases, collabs, etc.) its always scattered throughout the whole South Atlantic forum. One of you Athens guys should start it up.
