Red Hare celebrates Atlanta Beer Week with a special limited edition brew. Our Coffee Cream Stout begins
with a dark-hued grain bill that includes chocolate malt and Midnight Wheat. We added lactose for sweetness
and to boost the mouthfeel. Cold-brewed coffee was added in the boil and then the beer was ‘dry-hopped’
with another espresso coffee blend from Cool Beans, our local coffee roaster in Marietta, who roasted the
coffee especially for us. A solid coffee nose gives way to a roasted sweet flavor with a medium body. Coffee flavors follow up in the aftertaste to create a brew that successfully melds the coffee and stout
flavors. Have this brew with your favorite meal as well as dessert. 6.8% abv. 12 IBU
This American style IPA is medium bodied and definitely has that citrus flavor and aroma we’ve all come to love. Coming in at 6.2% ABV we hope this IPA sets the tone for our brewery in the Atlanta market. Slightly sweet, hopped with Williamette, Chinook, Cascade and Falconers Flight hops, this golden brew is crisp but unfiltered and we know it will leave people thirsty for more.
This is a Bohemian style pilsner that is packed with flavor. Golden in color, this beer comes through with slightly sweet and biscuity malt notes. We used some noble type hops to bitter, then put our twist on it with some Pacific Northwest hops at the end to deliver a slightly citrusy nose. We hope you find this 4.98% beer not only sessionable, but also very refreshing after a long day.
Watership Brown is Red Hare’s hopped up brown ale. Medium brown in color, this beer starts off with an almost nutty nose. The initial taste is very sweet and then followed by the roasted character of the darker grains used in this beer. At roughly 55 IBU’s the hop character is very noticeable but not overpowering and balances with the 7.2% ABV for a slightly sweet, somewhat hoppy, and definitely roasted finish.
Retired Rabbit’s Reserve Editions:
Rabbit’s Reserve #1: Chocolate Porter. Released November 2011. The inaugural Rabbit’s Reserve was a silky porter, weighing in at 8%, this winter warmer was an instant hit with dark ale fans. A cask of this porter, laced with Creme de Menthe and cocoa nibs won First Place in the Specialty Category at the Atlanta Cask Ale Festival.
Rabbit’s Reserve #2: Imperial Red IPA. Released February 2012. This malty, hoppy IIPA was 9.4% with 80 IBUs. This beer allowed us to test the limits of our brewhouse, to see exactly what we could create without adding extra fermentables. This was the very satisfying result.
Rabbit’s Reserve #3: Saison. Released June 2012. Red Hare celebrates all things summer with the release of Saison, a true farmhouse ale. This 5.5% brew’s character is born in the ingredients: a grain bill of pilsen, wheat and Munich malts, enhanced by U.S Brewer’s Gold and French Strisselspalt hops to give it a slightly spicy, somewhat earthy taste – we think you’ll find hints of black currant and citrus. We add a traditional Belgian ale yeast fermented in true Saison style – at 90 degrees – then combined with second yeast to create a flavor profile unique to this beer alone. Won Gold in the French/Belgian Saison category at the 2012 U.S. Beer Open Championship.
Rabbit’s Reserve #4: OktoberfestIn celebration of all things German, Red Hare used classic ingredients from the motherland of bier to recreate this much beloved celebratory beer style for the fourth Rabbit’s Reserve: Oktoberfest. The result is a lucid copper hued brew, characterized by a malty, bready and slightly nutty smooth taste. Red Hare’s brewers took a classic marzen grain bill starting with Munich and Vienna malts, then added wheat and a new Maltster’s Reserve crystal malt to give a new dimension to the classic Oktoberfest taste. German Hallertau hops help balance out the malt, provide a slightly earthy aroma and lend a fruity hint to the taste. A traditional German lager yeast shipped over from Munich set the stage for a lengthy lagering process which was key to the flavor profile for this German lager beer style.
Rabbit’s Reserve #5: Released February 9, 2013. Bitter Hearts Double Black IPA is a complex brew, not for the faint of heart. This imperial black IPA is bittered with Falconer’s Flight, Chinook, and Cascade hops. We use Crystal Malts to balance the hops while the Midnight Wheat gives it a rich dark color. We finish it off by dry-hopping it with Summit, Cascade, and Colombus whole coned hops. This beer is black in color with a fragrant aroma. It starts out smooth and finishes with a super bitter bite.
