Creature Comforts / Arizona Wilderness - Transmission Citrus Saison

22 July 2016

From Creature Comforts:

In case you missed it, we'll be pouring Transmission, our newest collaboration project with Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co. tomorrow at Max Lager's Old 320 Beer Festival, which benefits our friends at the Georgia Craft Brewer's Guild. You won't be able to try this beer again for a while, so we recommend getting tickets quick! Ticket link below.

UPDATE 12 Sep 2016 from Creature Comforts:

We recently collaborated with Arizona Wilderness Brewing Company to brew Transmission, a Citrus Saison. The beer was packaged in 750mL bottles and will be released September 29th in our brewery Tasting Room.

After meeting the amazing people from Arizona Wilderness, we quickly came to find that our two breweries both value local community and frequently source ingredients from local farms whenever possible. Transmission was brewed with honey from Booger Hill Bee Company in Danielsville, GA, as well as Lisbon Lemons and Arizona Sweet Oranges from The Farm at Agritopia in Gilbert, AZ. The beer contains both zest and juice from the fruit.

“We both really aligned on our philosophies & values in making beer and working with our local communities,” says Blake Tyers, our Wood Cellar and Specialty Brand Manager. “Front to back we figured out how we could express citrus in a Saison using local ingredients.”

Transmission was bottle conditioned for four months with our house‐mixed culture of yeast and bacteria and comes in at 5.6% abv. The tart and funky beer was brewed with Mandarina Bavaria and Lemondrop hops in order to complement the citrus flavor and aroma.

“Transmission is the result of 2 breweries who have the same vision in mind: to represent craft beer on a local level, using artists’ passion and to be completely dedicated to the craft,” said Arizona Wilderness Founder Jon Buford. “Oh, and to have a ton of fun while doing it.”

Athens illustrator and Creature Comforts tour staff member, Melissa Merrill, designed the label artwork. Merrill derived the watercolor medium from the fruit used in brewing the beer for the original artwork. The name of the beer is a nod to a bus with a broken transmission the two breweries shared on the way to a beer dinner while Arizona Wilderness was visiting us here in Athens, GA, which made for a very fun and memorable evening!
