Bearings Bike Shop is a youth development organization where kids in Atlanta can earn and maintain a bicycle while developing the skills and character essential to success in adulthood.

All bikes earned are donated from families across Atlanta whose kids have outgrown them or no longer have a need for them. Bearings give them a new life, and kids who might never own a bike get to do so, experiencing the joy of owning a bike of their own.

Entente Cordiale is our English-style barleywine aged in French Cognac barrels with Ugandan vanilla beans, orange peel, and cocoa nibs. Peter Kiley, head brewer and barrel program manager at the Garage, talks about the development and teamwork that led to its development.

How did Entente Cordiale get started?

“In 2016, we brewed a wheat wine (Laissez-Faire), and we had so much fun making that, we figured that we should make a barleywine.”

We liked the idea of an English over an American style because it had a lot more of the toffee and chocolate flavors we wanted. Josh Johnson, our creative brewer, did such an amazing job of conceptualizing the recipe and executing on it.”

Where did the idea of aging it in Cognac barrels come from?

Several months ago, I was in France picking up our foeders for the Garage. I was able to try so many of these different, amazing Cognacs. So many had these great floral and citrus notes, and I was inspired to use those barrels for this beer. I knew I couldn’t get floral into an English barleywine because that would play against the decadence of the recipe, but we thought that cocoa nibs, vanilla, and orange peel would be a winning combination. 

We’ve used Ugandan vanilla beans quite often in other beers (Tears of My Enemies and Situational Ethics) because they have such a high vanillin content. 

When we first pulled it out, I thought that the orange peel and vanilla would be there, but the barleywine was coming out a little hot, so that’s where the cocoa nibs came in, to bring harmony to a beer.

This was truly a group effort beer. Just doing that resulted in something that we’re very proud of here. And it’s different. We don’t want to do what everyone else is doing, but we also don’t want to over craft.”

Entente Cordiale is available now at the Garage and select locations.

With Christmas just around the corner and the cold weather already hitting Atlanta, it’s time to think warm, nostalgic thoughts. Which means our much beloved Cinnamon Cocoa Drafty Kilt is coming back. We talk to Josh Johnson, Monday Night’s creative brewer, about it.

Tell us about the history of Cinnamon Cocoa Drafty Kilt.

“We started Cinnamon Cocoa Drafty Kilt as part of our ‘Clip-On Series,’ which were variants of some of our existing beers. It was the second one (after Serrano Eye Patch IPA). And since we released it in wintertime, we wanted to create something that was somewhat dessert-esque, fun to drink and something you wanted to curl up next to a toasty fire with. So it has a lot of the wintery spices and chocolate and those things that are homey feeling.”

How did Monday Night develop it?

“We messed around originally with doing it in the Mexican hot chocolate style, where you add a little bit of pepper to the mix, but it seemed as though a lot of breweries were doing something similar at the time. So we thought that we could use cocoa nibs and cinnamon sticks to make something a little more unique. It turned out extremely well one of the first times we tested it, so we said, ‘Ok, we’re going with it.'”

How do you put the cinnamon and cocoa flavor into Drafty Kilt?

“We use something called a Grundy tank. it’s a three barrel tank that has a mesh screen. So we can add the ingredients and run the Drafty Kilt constantly through. We let the Drafty Kilt circulate for 24 hours, take it off, and then carbonate it just like any other beer.”

Drafty Kilt seems to be the one beer you use to make a lot of variants. Is there a reason for that?

“It’s a great beer. As long as you play to the strengths of a great base beer, your variants will turn out good. From the beginning, Drafty Kilt has been the one that’s been tried and true for us.”

What do you think people will take away from Cinnamon Cocoa Drafty Kilt when they try it?

“For me, one of the best descriptions I’ve heard is that it smells like Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It’s just got that nostalgic feel to it. It’s not overpowering, it’s very well put together and harmonic.”

Cinnamon Cocoa Drafty Kilt is available on draft and to-go at West Midtown starting on December 21.

Saturday, December 16 marks our first official bottle release out of the Garage. Expect more of these as our barrel-aging and souring program gets rolling. For now, we think you’ll be pretty happy with Situational Ethics. Situational Ethics is our chewy, beefy imperial stout. Head brewer and barrel program director Peter Kiley designed the beer and created three different variants, all three of which will release on Saturday. We sit down with Peter to learn more.

How did the idea of Situational Ethics come about?

“It was an idea of doing essentially a double mash stout, which means we fill up the mash tun twice to fill the kettle once. So it’s a big old chewy stout that we wanted to be able to deliberately show the influence of a brewer with an idea.

The thought was we all come from our parents, and our parents create our foundation. So the beer was made by the brewers and that’s the foundation of the beer. It finished around seven Plato, and clocks in at 13.5% ABV. Some time in the barrel will put it up a bit higher.”

Where did the idea of the three variants come from?

“We all know that it’s our parents that make you, but it’s your friends who you hang out with to determine who you really are going to be. So the idea was to do the stout and put it into three different scenarios. Essentially, one would be Bourbon with Batdorf & Bronson coffee, a very classic pairing. The next would be a rum barrel with coconut,  to kind of play into that rum vibe. And then the last one, which I’m personally most excited about, is the maple Bourbon barrel that we got from our friends at Bissell Maple Farms. He (Nate Bissell) empties the bourbon, puts in his maple syrup for a couple years, empties it, and then we put our beer in it. We gave that a little bit of cinnamon touch to cut through the cloying side of it.”

Bissell Maple doesn’t just give their barrels to any brewer. How did you trick them into giving you some?

“Our partnership with Bissell Maple was a couple years in the making with Nate and our friend Aaron Willett over at Speyside Cooperage.  Nate works with only a very few people so it was very flattering that he decided to work with us. We’re lucky enough to get our hands on 10 of his barrels for this first vintage of Situational Ethics. His product is awesomely superior to most bourbon barrel aged maple syrups, and he’ll actually be coming out for the release which is really exciting.”

The bottle art for Situational Ethics is quite unique. Can you tell us more about it?

“The bottle art is honestly one of my favorite things. It comes from Abby Dewitt. She’s the girlfriend of our warehouse manager John Sloan, and he put us in touch with her. Some of her first work was the label on our whiskey that we did with ASW. Now, not only is she responsible for the very large mural in the Garage, she’ll also be doing all the artwork for the beers coming out of the Garage. Her style and execution are so awesomely unique, I really believe it gives our brand a new look and an advantage out in the market because the labels alone attract me to the bottle. And coming from the world of wine we all know how well a label looks can determine how well it sells.”

You’re releasing bottles this weekend. Tell us about the VIP experience.

“We’re selling 75 tickets to the VIP event. We’ll have each beer paired with a gelato from our friends and neighbors at Honeysuckle Gelato. They’re going to make a gelato based on all the different adjuncts we’ve put in Situational Ethics. Nate will be out here with his syrup for people to try, and Batdorf and Bronson will join us with their coffee.

But really, it’s going to be an in-depth view of what the Garage is. Its genesis, its functionality, what our vision is for it down the road. To be able to talk with me and Joel (Iverson, COO, and Co-Founder) just to get a better idea of what we’re trying to do here.”

What are you trying to do at the Garage?

“The Garage is supposed to be exploratory. It’s supposed to be educational. We don’t want to hide behind the veil. We want everyone to fully understand what we are doing because through greater education and understanding, Georgia will have a more advanced craft consumer, and that’s what we really want.”

This first bottle release is a big step for the Garage, and Monday Night Brewing, right?

“It’s a really exciting time for the company as well as me and our other brewers, Josh Johnson, Rhett Caseman, Ryan Cooley, Sarah Green – they’ve all had a role in this. This is not a one-man show by any means, and without them, none of this would be possible. They’re really helping us execute on this dream.”

Situational Ethics drops on Saturday, Dec. 16, 2017.

Tickets are still on sale for the 3 pm VIP experience but are going fast! The Garage opens to the public at 5 pm.

More details:

Bottles will be available for purchase. Get to the Garage early if you want a chance to get your hands on these beauties.
