From Shipyard & Scofflaw:
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.

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
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
