It’s Craft Beer. It’s Creative. Just, Don’t Call it Hotlanta!

Monday Night Brewing Don't Call It Hotlanta

If there’s one thing I’m passionate about in this world, it’s adventurous sips. Any refreshing way to cool my palate on a hot Atlanta afternoon is exactly the way I’d spend every day if I could.

And speaking of hot Atlanta; legend has it that if you utter the term “Hotlanta” within the city limits, you will hear a collective moan from  every ATL native for miles. Not quite sure how the city got branded Hotlanta; maybe it’s the sizzling social scene, or possibly the scorching summer temps. Who knows. One thing is for certain, that word is a capital CRINGE to folks around here.

So, when I was introduced to a new brew by Monday Night Brewing that’s all about the ATL, like the I-85 bridge I collapsed with excitement! (Still too soon?) 😛 It’s called “Don’t Call It Hotlanta”, and I must say that this baby is as colorful as its name and the city it’s affectionately named not named after. 😉 This bold new IPA (India Pale Ale) packs an impressive 8.5% ABV that’s just brimming with flavor. I mean, the quadruple dry-hoppiness is as adventurous as an Atlanta commute, with sunny tropical notes on the nose that will have you wishing for cooler climates. 😀

Now I’m no way near a beer snob (unlike Hubby), but I love trying freshly imagined brews, and Monday Night’s “Don’t Call It Hotlanta” is a truly creative craft beer. As the brewmasters at Monday Night describe, “It drinks dank and finishes with a bit of bitterness, much like an Atlanta sports fan.” Yep… That about sums it up. 😐

So, cheers to our city with this cool new craft beer that’s sure to make you forget all those times the Falcons let you down. Just, whatever you do, DON’T call it Hotlanta! 😀
