It won't be available for another two weeks, but you can go ahead and get your ticket tomorrow for the release of Creature Comfort's latest limited-edition cellar beer.
Arcadiania is a saison that was originally released in 2015, but this time, it has a twist: The latest verson was aged in wine barrels from Yonah Mountain Vineyards, located in Cleveland, about an hour and a half up Highway 129 from Athens. Combined with American hops and Creature Comfort's house yeast culture, the barrel aging imparts citrus and berry notes to the tart saison.
$60 tickets to the July 21 release party can be bought here and come with 36 ounces of draft samples, food pairings, stemware, two 750-milliliter bottles of Arcadiana and the opportunity to purchase more.
