Monday Night Brewing - Nashville Preservation Co.
A roasty scotch ale with a hint of smoke. Full-bodied, but not overpowering. Smokey, but not in a creepy bar kind of way. Sweet, but not obnoxiously so. Sound like your ideal mother-in-law? Fair enough, but it also is a pretty dead-on description of our Scotch Ale. In a difficult hop-growing climate, Scottish brewers relied on other ingredients to impart flavor and bitterness – one such ingredient was smoked malt. Drafty Kilt is a dark, malty bombshell of a beer.
Bourbon Barrel-Aged: Drafty Kilt
What do Scotland and the American South have in common? An appreciation for good booze. But that doesn’t mean they always get along. We put our award-winning Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale in Kentucky bourbon barrels and let them duke it out in the cellar. Who won? You did. Oh, also we did. Again. A GABF Gold Meal. No big deal. The chocolate, caramel, and roasted malts in Drafty Kilt complement the charred oak and vanilla notes in the bourbon barrels quite well. Notice we didn’t say “compliment.” Scotch and Bourbon still don’t send each other Christmas cards.
Sour & Wild
Mischief Managed: Raspberry/Blackberry
Mischief Managed is our series of Berliner-style Weisse beers soured and fermented in French oak Foeders. For this edition, we added raspberries and blackberries for secondary fermentation. The result is a crisp and clean fruit forward ale that pairs perfectly with seafood, salads or just a nice warm day out on the porch. Contains wheat.
Imaginary Grace is a blend of three seasons of 100% spontaneously fermented beer after inoculating in our Coolship- dubbed the Crunkship- we fermented and aged each vintage in neutral wine barrels, then blended all three iterations together. This beer pays homage to the history of this style, while celebrating the unique atmospheric terroir of Atlanta. Imaginary Grace is what three nights in Atlanta taste like.
Barrel Farm is our yearly blend of mixed-culture fermentation beers from our wood cellar. Our 2022 rendition is a 6% ABV saison that sings beautiful brett-driven notes of apricot and grapefruit. Accentuated with a hoppy table beer, a 4 year spontaneously fermented beer from our coolship, and a dry hopped sour, this harvest is crisp, slightly tart, and positively luminous.
Petit MC was aged in French oak wine barrels for one year. An aromatic bouquet of juicy pear, fresh nectarine, lemon zest, and a hint of pineapple radiate on the nose. At 4% ABV, a bright acidity shines through on the palate and begs another sip.
A tart, fruity sour beer. Dr. Robot is as playful as its name. After souring to a delightfully tart level, we add blackberry juice and lemon zest to enhance and balance the flavor. The juice gives this beer a pink hue. The perfect blend of sweet and sour, Dr. Robot is a refreshing year-round sipper.
A space crafted double IPA, dry hopped three times, resulting in a cosmically aligned hop encounter. Which hops? Glad you asked. Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe, Mandarina Bavaria, Simcoe and (breath) Ekuanot. 2 Row, Carapils, Pilsen, Munich malts give this one a great backbone too.
A juicy IPA. Pirates love citrus fruits almost as much as they love blood. If the phrase “you are what you eat” is true, then pirates are blood oranges. If the phrase “you are what you drink” is true, you’re about to be an incredibly delicious, juicy hop bomb of an IPA. We add bits of real blood orange to every beer, so you know it’s good.
Slap Fight will woo you in with a West Coast-style malt bill, but slaps you across the face with its tropical hop profile. Light in body, heavy in character, this IPA features Munich and Crystal pale malts for a clean, rich mouthfeel. Comet, Equinox and Mosaic hops lend a pungent herbal aroma, peppered with hints of papaya, orange and grapefruit. Present this beer to a friend. If he does not drink it immediately, slap him as hard as you can. Repeat.
Out of the Jurassic Jungle of Juice comes an apex predator with the vicious intent of slaying your palate. Death Raptor Killer IPA’s zesty, citrus fruit aroma lures you into the glassful of sweet, sweet surrender. Flavors of tangerine and grapefruit mingle with the malt backbone of pilsner, oat, and wheat. This IPA appears pleasant, but you may never escape its delicious grip.
What’s Golden is a Hop Hut series 2X NEIPA— with a hybrid of peach skin, pineapple, and dank aroma from Wai-iti, Sultana,Citra Cryo, and Mosaic hops on the nose. The aroma is rounded out with flavors of sweet lychee fruit and an earthy, pine finish.
At just 90 calories and 3.2% ABV, Lay Low is an IPA that packs in a surprising amount of character. Hints of tropical fruit and pine wrestle with a pleasant hop bitterness and a slightly sweet malt profile. It's the perfect beer for taming tigers. If you've already tamed all the tigers, it's still a great IPA to slay all day.
