    It's been a while since there was a thread dedicated to Little Cottage.

    I know a lot of people are looking forward to Jon opening the doors to the brewery. Until then I hope this thread brings some deserved publicity to these excellent beers.

    Over the past 2 months I have opened up several LC beers that were phenomenal.

    War Beast Cinnamon may be one of the top 10 beers I have ever had. From any brewery. Ever. The cinnamon was so perfectly integrated into the thick chewy base stout, but not in a sweet pastry way. The closest beer I have had to War Beast Cinnamon was Derivation 9 from Side Project. This beer was absolutely phenomenal and I hope I am lucky enough to try it again.

    War Beast was amazing as well. Thick, chewy stout with tons of bakers chocolate, tobacco, and leather. One of the best BA non-adjunct stouts out there. As a St.Louis guy I think it's better than Maman. Almost like a thicker chewier version of Appervation.

    I also had BA touch of death, which was good, but not on the same level as the other two. Still a great beer. And Death isn't what it used to be was not my cup of tea, but still a solid non-adjunct stout.

    Heard some great things about LC. Wish I could get my hands on some bottles to try! Small "up and coming" breweries usually have unique takes on stouts and I love to try something different.

    Had a trade partner from Georgia that hooked me up a couple years ago. It was solid. May have to send out a PM.

    Low production numbers, excellent, quality, and local demand have made them very hard to come by. I hope as production increases that more people will gain access to these beers.

    I have not heard that influencers get LC beer. If that was the case I would assume more people would know about them. I could be wrong, but thought it was friends and investors.

    Is there a way to get beer from these guys? I'll be in the area soon.

    Any BA'ers attending the Grand Opening this weekend? Looking past this weekend, has Little Cottage provided any further information on to-go beer sales, hours of operation, etc.?

    The grand opening was smooth. It was ticketed to control the crowds a bit I imagine. Tickets sold out quick. All the beers were spot on. The ipa game was strong which was a surprise considering they are known for ba stouts and big beers. Will be sweet to have some more everyday drinkable beers as well. Couple of crowlers to go. Opening to gen pop on Thursday. Their website and socials are pretty up to date so keep an eye there. All in all a super smooth first weekend with more access and regular availability at the brewery to come next week.

    Wow! That is some high praise...It's been a while since I've visited SP but last time there I got a few sips of Derivation from a kindly and generous group of patrons and it was an incredible experience. Also split a BA Barleywine (name escapes me) with another customer and it too was top notch.

    I tried searching for Little Cottage on the site with no success. Am I a bad "searcher" and they have been listed on here? Or No. I want to keep them top of mind for next time I'm in the greater ATL area.
