SpikedSeltzer

SpikedSeltzer was created in 2012 by Nick Shields, who began formulating five gallon batches out of his garage in Westport, CT.

The unique beverage, which he made by combining disciplines of brewing and winemaking, focuses on simple and natural ingredients. The goal was to create a clean, crisp, bubbly drink that lacks the sugary sweetness of wine and the heaviness of beer. After refining nearly 100 batches, the original hard seltzer was born.

Jekyll Brewing Company

Inspired by the history of beer in Georgia, Jekyll Brewing was founded in 2013 to celebrate the quality and camaraderie of the brewing industry in the South.

In 1738, the first  brewery in the Deep South was built on Jekyll Island by General James Oglethorpe, founder of the colony of Georgia, and Major William Horton, Oglethorpe’s second in command. Horton was the head brewer and also grew his own hops and grain for brewing.

The Horton brewery is now in ruins, but it remains a prominent historical site for the state. Georgia’s brewing industry has grown significantly since its colonial days and now more than 40 breweries and brewpubs exist here,

1. IPA means what what?
India Pale Ale – a hoppy, traditionally bitter style of beer. Historically the IPA was created to provide the British with a beer that would last the length of a trade ship’s voyage to India. English beer often went bad before reaching shore because of poor storage conditions on board.

All About Pale Ales

The Pale Ale is a hoppy style of beer that’s one step down from IPAs, one step up from Amber Ales.

Pale ale is named because brewers use a larger proportion of hops than most beers, which results in a lighter color, and less wheat. It is synonymously referred to as a bitter ale. There are many types of pale ale, including Amber Ale, India Pale Ale, Golden Ale, and English Bitter, but for now I’d like to present some American Pale Ales.

Kona Brewing Company from Hawaii has an island-style pale ale called Fire Rock that has been a medal winner at numerous beer competitions over the years,
