Second Self Beer Company - Georgia's new craft brewery

Second Self Beer Company - Georgia's new craft brewery located in Atlanta - has released a limited edition, lightly spiced summer Belgian ale called XMAS in July (6.7% ABV, 24 IBU). Inspired by one of their favorite styles - the Winter Belgian Quad - Second Self started with a light, Belgian strong beer with winter spices (coriander and a touch of clove) to conjure the season to come. For balance, they added summer spices including pink peppercorn and orange peel. The end result is a beer that's fruity yet spicy, flavorful yet light.  A true treat to get us through the hottest time of the year.

Suggested parings include roasted pork, fresh peaches, BBQ chicken, and brie.

The beer is available throughout Georgia, including at Hop City in Krog Street Market, Atlanta bars The Porter and Atkins Park, Summits Wayside Tavern and the Lincoln Fill Station in Snellville, Growler Time in Tucker, and many more.

About Second Self Beer Company

Founders Jason Santamaria (31 years old) and Chris Doyle (30 years old) started Second Self as a home brewing experiment almost a decade ago, and the highly anticipated beers were just released last fall. The two met in college at Georgia Tech and bonded over a shared passion for good beer. Chris went on to work at Atlanta's Sweetwater Brewery and earned his certificate from the American Brewers Guild Craft Brewers Apprenticeship program. Jason has a background in food and business. Second Self's beers are brewed with fresh ingredients like blue ginger and lemongrass (not dried ingredients or extracts). Each was designed to be paired with food. Second Self's brewery is located at 1311 Logan Circle NW and is open for regular tours and tastings.
