A celebration of the 2018 harvest: Yonah Skins 

Creature Comforts Brewing Company will release a new limited release, Yonah Skins, from its tasting room this October. 

Yonah Skins is a skin-contact lager made with the brewery’s house mixed culture and estate Cabernet Sauvignon grape skins locally sourced from Cleveland, Georgia-based Yonah Mountain Vineyards.

This beer really comes to life during its cold maceration, a unique process Creature Comforts uses. After stainless fermentation, the beer is racked into oak barrels with pressed grape skins and aged at 38F for six months.

The extended cold maceration allows for maximum contact time with the skins to pull out as much flavor and color as possible while minimizing the tannin extraction. The result is a beautiful rosé beer and a celebration of the 2018 harvest from Yonah Mountain Vineyards.

Yonah Skins is 6.5% ABV. The beer will be available from Creature Comforts’ tasting room in 500-mL bottles on October 12. 

 

Style: Mixed Fermentation Lager aged with grape skins
Availability: 500ml bottles
