I recognize what you’re thinking: Poems at Midnight? That sounds just like the magazine entry of an angsty teen from the early 2000s.
The call takes place to return from Tantrum Brewing Co.’s unapologetically fruit-forward and tart Berliner Weisse series.
Before the brewery opened on March 23, Ross Crumpton, its founder, stated he made a dash to the grocery save to acquire components for potential brews.
Teaming up with David Sheets, Tantrum Brewing’s brewmaster, he experimented with special fruit combos, which led to the beginning of Poems at Midnight.
Tucked inside the hills of White County wine u. S ., Crumpton said he desired to create brews that could ease wine-drinkers into craft beer.
“It’s no longer off-putting to someone that doesn’t clearly enjoy or know what a sour beer is,” he said. “I’ve had tons of women and men say they don’t really drink beer, they’re just wine-drinkers. They attempt it, and the next element you recognize, their glasses are empty.”
One beer from the collection, Poems at Midnight with Strawberry and Pomegranate, caught my complete attention when I visited the brewery.
The beer absolutely embraces both its strawberry and pomegranate counterparts, from the colorful color of the beer to the awesome flavors.
With all the beers from the collection, Crumpton stated he aimed to do just that.
“For me, fruited beer needs to be an illustration of the fruit that’s in it,” he said. “I don’t like while you get a beer that’s raspberry or something, and it comes out searching like a normal beer.”
Despite the punchy tart nature of pomegranate, I found myself pleasantly surprised via the way it didn’t overshadow the strawberry taste in the beer.
As a self-proclaimed Berliner Weisse snob, I continually anticipate the style’s feature wheat aftertaste. This beer did now not disappoint.
Tantrum Brewing’s breathtaking view of Yonah and Pink mountains additionally didn’t harm the vibe of the beer.
Whether you want the beer or not, Tantrum Brewing’s mountainous backdrop must be sufficient of a cause to visit.
And right here’s a fun reality: Tantrum Brewing is Georgia’s first agritourism-detailed brewery. In another year, Crumpton hopes to have completely mature hops vegetation growing at the brewery.
If you’re even thinking about checking the brewery out, don’t hesitate, simply do it.
