We’re Growing our Barrel-Aging and Souring Program at the Garage Tim McDonnell. He cleans up nicely. Photo by Lyric Lewin.

Experienced brewer Tim McDonnell is the newest member of our team. He’s joining the barrel program manager at the Garage in Southwest Atlanta.

“When we opened up the Garage in September 2017, we wanted it to be the home of our barrel-aged and sour program,” said co-founder Joel Iverson. “We expected it to grow, but it’s been a little faster than we anticipated, which isn’t a bad thing. Tim will help us keep that growth going strong.”

Tim most recently brewed at Calusa in Sarasota, Florida. Tim also has brewing experience in California, working at Highland Park in Los Angeles.

“It was the perfect opportunity for me and my family,” said McDonnell. “I’m excited to get started and keep producing some award-winning liquid.”

“We’re gonna work him,” said brewmaster Peter Kiley. “Once he gets ramped up, Tim will be responsible for wort production, cellar operations, filtration, fruiting, packaging, cleaning and maintenance. In fact, his first assignment was to get a good pair of boots.”

What if we told you that everything you knew about milkshake IPAs wasn’t real?  Behold: the non-hazy milkshake IPA!

One of our newest releases is Slam Dunk, an orange-creamsicle India Pale Ale that’s technically considered a milkshake IPA. However, once you pour it into your glass, you’ll notice one big difference from other beers in this style – it’s crystal clear.

By now, most people know what to expect from a milkshake IPA – a thick, rich, creamy beer with low hop bitterness and high flavor, usually from fruity adjuncts. We’ve done our own experimentation with this style (most recently with the strawberry-vanilla Piranha Dealer). And we’ve found some things we can do differently.

“One of the things we love to do is to take a classic style, do it well, and then put our own twist to it,” says brewmaster Peter Kiley. “The milkshake IPA is a brand new style, but that doesn’t mean we can’t shake it up…see what I did there?”

The shakeup? Filtering the beer.

“We loved the way the flavor profile worked in Piranha Dealer,” said head brewer Ryan Cooley. “But we did experience some stability issues on the shelf. It wasn’t staying as fresh as long as we wanted it to. Our lab took a look at it and suggested that we filter it.”

So that’s what the brewers did with Slam Dunk. The result was a clean, more brilliant flavor. A slightly bitter orange aroma balances perfectly once you take a sip and enjoy the mellowing tones of vanilla alongside juicy orange notes.

Cellar Manager Aaron Butzen sorts out orange peels for Slam Dunk. In related news, we are happy to report the Monday Night Brewing crew is now 100% scurvy-free.

“We filtered the beer before we added fresh orange peels and vanilla.” said Kiley. “It’s totally unorthodox, we know. But in reality, we replaced the haze with shelf stability, and that’s a trade off we are totally comfortable with. The aroma, flavor and mouthfeel are all where it needs to be.”

But that doesn’t mean we’re done with experimentation. “we’ll keep tweaking and adjusting our recipes for each beer,” said cellar manager Aaron Butzen. “so we may still come out with a hazy milkshake IPA in the future…it just depends on what works best with the style and the ingredients we’re working with.”

Slam Dunk will be available in our taprooms and in Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama throughout the month of February.

BIG HEAD, TINY ARMS IS COMING TO ATLANTA Collaboration With Fernbank Museum Of Natural History Highlights After Dark Events


Two great Atlanta institutions are partnering up to toast one of natural history’s most iconic specimens – the dinosaur.

On October 6, Monday Night Brewing’s Big Head, Tiny Arms debuts at its West Midtown taproom, followed by a release at Fernbank Museum of Natural History on October 12 during Fernbank After Dark. This hazy, easy-drinking India Pale Ale has plenty of citrusy, hoppy notes thanks to the inclusion of Motueka and Huell Melon hops.

“We were really excited to partner with such a great Atlanta institution,” said Jonathan Baker, co-founder of Monday Night Brewing.” Fernbank Museum wanted a special brew to serve during their Fernbank After Dark adult science nights. As a brewery, we love dinosaurs, and Fernbank is known as Atlanta’s home to dinosaurs. So we put our (big) heads together and came up with this dino-themed juicy IPA.”

The name and artwork for Big Head, Tiny Arms is an homage to the Fernbank Museum’s Giganotosaurus (A.K.A “Giggy”), the world’s largest meat-eating dinosaur, measuring 47-feet long with a six-foot skull.

The museum will feature Big Head, Tiny Arms beginning October 12 during Fernbank After Dark: Forensics. This adults’-only event will explore the science of solving crimes and other mysteries through physics, biology, chemistry and more, including special activities and unique demonstrations.

“While our forensics night doesn’t solve the question of why Giggy’s head is so big and arms are so short, guests will have indisputable evidence of just how cool science can be,” said Brandi Berry, VP of Marketing and Communications for Fernbank Museum of Natural History. “We wouldn’t have beer or understand dinosaurs without science, so this is a really exciting partnership.”

You didn’t think we could host a dodgeball game without a proper ref, did you? Of course not. We’re taking this very seriously. Meet Brentnol John, your favorite (only) referee for the MNB Darth Evaders/Orpheus Brewing game.

Monday Night Brewing: How long have you been refereeing? What do you like about it?
Brentnol John: I’ve been reffing since a digital clock was put in a wristwatch. I’m in love with any sport you can make a movie about.

MNB: What is the most important quality a team should possess to win the game of dodgeball?
BJ: A lot of people think dodgeball is all athleticism, strategy, and skill. But really it’s all in the name. Better the team name, better the team.

MNB: What is the craziest thing you have seen while refereeing?
BJ: Thaddeus Williams 1986. That man cleaned house. Defeated a whole team before finishing a CapriSun.

MNB: What do you expect to see from two “teams” who brew beer and may or may not display any athleticism whatsoever?
BJ: I am a fan of sportsmanship and dance moves. Give me both, and we’ve got a good time on our hands.

The only known photo of Brentnol reffing.

Come out to the Garage Friday, 9/28 to see Brentnol in action (and to witness Orpheus fail miserably at dodging our balls). 7pm; free to attend.
