Atlanta, GA . – To honor its Super Bowl bet with its friends at Shipyard Brewing Company of Portland,

ME ., Scofflaw Brewing Company of Atlanta will serve a new beer in its tasting room this week.

G.O.A.T. is a “New England compatriots-style IPA” brewed with Maine-grown malted barley and

organic flaked oats, and hopped with Simcoe, Amarillo and Mosaic hops. The malted barley was

grown and malted by Maine Malt House (Mapleton, Me.) and the oats were grown and milled by

Aurora Mills & Farm (Linneus, Me.).

The beer is 7.9% ABV and will be served on draft at the Scofflaw tasting room starting at 5 p.m. this

Thursday, March 30. Scofflaw’s tasting room is open for beer and tours Thursdays through Sunday.

The new IPA honors the “Greatest Of All Time” New England Patriots while celebrating the friendly

collaboration among these two craft brewers. Deep with never-quit character, G.O.A.T. is an

unfiltered IPA with a murky first impression that leads into winning flavors and aromas and a

miraculous come-from- behind finish.

“I think we’re safe,” says Shipyard founder Fred Forsley, “in saying that our New England Patriots are

the best football team of all time. Now we get to see if our G.O.A.T beer with Scofflaw is the greatest

New England-style IPA of all time.”

The losing brewery had to brew a special batch of beer from a recipe chosen by the winning brewery.

The beer had to include indigenous ingredients from the winner’s state. On tapping day, as part of the

bet, Scofflaw must fly a New England Patriot’s flag for one week or until the eight-barrel batch of beer

is gone, whichever comes first. Scofflaw must also send a case of its beer to Shipyard Brewing.

Scofflaw Brewmaster Travis Herman said this new IPA is designed to help ease the pain of the

Atlanta Falcons loss. There will be something for Patriots fans as well. “For spring days when the

Atlanta weather is cool,” said Herman, “we’ll use lower pressure in our kegs so Patriots fans can hold

on to their glass.”

Shipyard head brewer Joe Rank came up with the name of the beer and developed the recipe with
