Hyperion Brewing Company Grand Opening in Jacksonville, FL


“Jacksonville’s First Nano-Brewery Opens in Historic Springfield”


Jacksonville, Florida -­‐ March 28, 2017 -­‐ Hyperion Brewing Company announces it’s grand opening is scheduled for Friday, May 19, 2017 in historic Springfield. This will be Jacksonville’s first Nano-­‐Brewery. The new brewery will serve a variety of beer styles, traditional and innovative, on a 1BBL system, ensuring there is an offering for each guest to enjoy.


A Nielson Household Panel Survey stated the primary reason consumers purchase craft beer is to experiment with different styles or flavors. In response to that survey, Hyperion Brewing will serve a rotating tap list without a “core” group of beers. “We prefer flights to flagships. We believe in freedom of choice.” Owner, Alexandra McKeown says, “Our goal is to let the public decide what our core beers should be. We will use our POS system data and feedback from guests in the taproom to determine which beers to distribute in the future.”



The Grand Opening will kick off on Friday, May 19 with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 4:30 p.m. Doors will officially open at 5:00 p.m. with the first fifty guests set to receive a free branded flight glass and ticket for a free beer at a later date. Springfield based Eddis and Sons Food Truck will be in attendance to serve up legitimate, Philadelphia-­‐style cheese steaks. The opening also leads directly   into the Historic Springfield Tour of Homes hosted by SPAR, Springfield Preservation and Revitalization, on Saturday, May 20 and Sunday, May 21 from Noon – 5:00 p.m. Hyperion Brewing will be open during the Tour of Homes.


Hyperion Brewing will have fifteen taps, however, there will be a limited selection of it’s own beers available. “We’ll be brewing at a break-­‐neck pace to have as many of our beers ready for the grand opening as possible,” says Head Brewer Troy. The brewery will offer Crowler cans to allow guests to take beer off-­‐premise. Patrons can purchase up to two Crowlers per person during the grand opening weekend.


The Jax Beer Bus has partnered with Hyperion Brewing Company to make transportation from the beaches area to the brewery safe and convenient. The Jax Beer Bus will pick up from Green Room Brewing Company at 4:30 p.m., 6:15 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. All guests must be 21 years or older. Tickets are $15.00 round-­‐trip and include a ticket for a free beer from Hyperion Brewing Company at a later date. The Jax Beer Bus will be BYOLB, “Bring Your Own Local Beer.”



Red Hare Brewing Company to Open Second Location on NC Coast!

Red Hare Brewing Company to Open Second Location on NC Coast!


Marietta, Georgia, March 28, 2017 — Red Hare Brewing Company is heading to the coast and opening their second brewery in Shallotte, North Carolina — just up river from Ocean Isle Beach. This new brewery will primarily focus on barrel aging and open fermentation, while serving as an experimentation station for the ever-increasing diversity of beer flavors and brewing processes. Red Hare Founder and Managing Partner, Roger Davis, and Bobby Thomas, Co-Founder and Head Brewer, were heavily influenced by a recent road trip to visit breweries on the coast of Oregon last year. “We saw what cool things you can do with open fermentation, coupled with a coastal climate and salty air — so Bobby and I set our sights on the Southern coast,” Davis shares. “We couldn’t be more excited to increase our presence and expand into North Carolina!”


New Brews from the Beach


Red Hare has been aging and experimenting with beers in barrels for some time now, but is running out of adequate space to do so in the Marietta facility. The new Red Hare brewery will be located in the 111-year-old former Coastal Drug Company building on the Shallotte river — providing plenty of space and an authentic environment for the development of new barrel aged and wild fermentation beers. Any beers brewed here will have taste characteristics that can’t be achieved inland. Red Hare will begin working with coolships (broad, open-top, flat vessels) that allow wild yeast to naturally ferment, cultivating truly unique styles of beer! Wild yeast is far less predictable than yeast grown in a lab, but Red Hare is excited to see what the coastal climate, native wild yeast, and naturally occurring bacteria does for their beers. “We can’t wait to start experimenting at this coastal location,” says Thomas. “With open fermentation and wild yeast in the mix, we can continue to bring unique craftsmanship to our line up!”


The new brewery location will be opening in the second half of 2017, and the new brews will be distributed in NC by R.A.Jeffrey’s and Healy Wholesale. Stay tuned for updates on construction and releases! In the meantime, visit the flagship Red Hare brewery in Marietta, GA, located at 1998 Delk Industrial Boulevard.

Red Hare Brewing Company is an independent microbrewery in Marietta, selling craft beer throughout Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, the Florida panhandle and South Carolina. The company will be opening a second brewery on the North Carolina Coast in 2017. Red Hare finished as the 4th best brewery in the 2016 US Open Beer Championship with 5 medals, including gold for SPF 50/50 and Cotton Tail Pale Ale. In addition to those year-round beers, Red Hare mainstays include Gangway IPA, Long Day Lager, and the new Gem City Classic Craft Light Lager. Red Hare also offers over 12 seasonal or small batch releases per year, and was the first craft brewery in Georgia to can beer in an effort to curb their carbon footprint. The brewery’s tasting room is open to the public for sampling and tours Wednesday through Friday from 5:30-7:30 pm and Saturday from 2:00-6:00 pm.

Catawba Brewing Releases Small Batch Peach Grisette

Catawba Brewing Releases Small Batch Peach Grisette



This Thursday, March 30th Catawba Brewing will release a new beer in their Small Batch series! Catawba’s Small Batch Peach Grisette draws inspiration from the traditional working class ales of Southern Belgium during the late 19th century. Brewed with a generous amount of flaked wheat, this refreshing session beer showcases the fruity esters of its French Saison yeast strain, amplified by the addition of freshly pureed peaches during secondary fermentation. The recipe is a spinoff from Catawba’s Le Session Saison, a popular summer seasonal release since 2015.



As a beer style, the Grisette was relatively unknown until its revival by American craft breweries in recent years. Traditionally, Grisettes were favored by coal and stone miners of Wallonia, whereas the more ubiquitous Saisons were popularized by farm workers in Northern Belgium. The two beer styles are similar in character, with Grisettes typically being a bit lower in alcohol and lighter in body, without sacrificing flavor. The result is a thirst-quenching golden ale that continues to serve the needs of laborers during the warm months.


Peach Grisette is Passport Beer #13 in Catawba’s 2017 Small Batch rewards program – available in their three tasting rooms, and in limited distribution. Participants with 13 stamps in their passports may collect the “First Layover” prize, a Catawba branded stainless steel can koozie, by presenting their passport booklets to bar staff at any of Catawba’s tasting rooms. There will be an additional drawing on April 20 for free Navitat Zipline Tours for passport holders who achieve a perfect First Quarter, collecting all 13 stamps to date.

Wild Heaven Beer Announces Plans for Second Brewery & Taproom Location on Atlanta Beltline Westside Trail

Wild Heaven Beer Announces Plans for Second Brewery & Taproom Location on Atlanta Beltline Westside Trail

Atlanta, GA (March 23, 2017) – With the Georgia General Assembly’s passage of SB85 allowing direct sale of beer by Georgia breweries, Wild Heaven Beer today announces plans for a second brewery and taproom location at the Lee + White development in Atlanta adjacent to the Beltline’s Westside Trail. The freestanding building, including over 21,000 square feet of space with room for expansion, includes a large area overlooking the Atlanta Beltline perfect for patrons to enjoy being outdoors while sipping beer and nibbling food made onsite.  

“We plan to create an incredible beer and food destination in an area of Atlanta whose time has come,” says Wild Heaven President, Nick Purdy. “Beyond that, this facility provides space for our ongoing growth and expansion.” Wild Heaven Brewmaster Eric Johnson explains, “We’ll start with a 15-barrel brewhouse allowing production of new beers plus smaller run beers from our lineup, followed by a 60-barrel system that will take over production of our mainline beers. Then our Avondale Estates facility can become focused on sour and barrel-aged beer production.” 

Wild Heaven’s readiness to make what will ultimately be a $5 million+ investment is facilitated by a long-awaited change in Georgia’s beer laws allowing for direct sale to consumers onsite. “Thanks to the leadership and vision of Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle, Senator Rick Jeffares, Representative Howard Maxwell and the efforts of our wholesale partners and persistence of the Georgia Craft Brewers Guild, it makes sense to double down on on our home state,” says Purdy. We spent considerable time investigating the possibility of expanding our operation in various neighboring states, but the opportunity to stay at home and the amazing potential offered by the Beltline, combined with a new ability to sell some beer directly to those that want it proved irresistible,” adds Johnson.


Wild Heaven, makers of the popular Emergency Drinking Beer along with a broad portfolio of unique beers, intends to open “Wild Heaven Westside” in the first half of 2018. With space for at least 10,000 square feet of outdoor patios and decks, it should be a welcoming featured destination on the Beltline’s Westside Trail, which is scheduled to open later in 2017. The facility will be alongside other local producers like Monday Night Brewing, Honeysuckle Gelato, Doux South Pickles and Southern Aged Cheese.

Brewmaster Eric Johnson is already planning a taproom lineup worthy of a visit, including variants on core Wild Heaven beers, a stream of new experimental beers and new taproom-only beers. “Eric’s brewing creativity and innovation has blown me away for over twenty years, and so I personally cannot wait to see what this new context allows him to do,” says Purdy. “Our Avondale Estates facility, which we love and will maintain and evolve, limits what he can do from a production standpoint. Good problems!”  

Wild Heaven’s founders view the Westside facility as a platform to live out the company’s motto to “Serve Your Neighbor.” “I’ve long been inspired by Atlanta’s energy and diversity and am thrilled to see a beautiful, historic part of the city get some needed new amenities. Eric and I can’t wait to get to know our new neighbors and find ways to serve the West End, Adair Park and surrounding communities.  There is a lot of effort ahead of us, including working with the neighboring communities and the city to ensure our vision is helpful and appropriate,” says Purdy.
