For many of us, Spring and Summer craft beers are just as anticipation-worthy as warmer temperatures and juicy, local produce. The refreshing, often lighter bodied notes featured in our favorite brews represent a glorious time of year when patios reopen and day-drinking is perfectly acceptable.
There are two craft beers that are nearing cult-like status in Atlanta. Transmigration of Souls, an "irresponsibly hopped" IPA and Serpent Bite, a dry-hopped sour that may just be the perfect brunch beer. These offerings from Orpheus Brewing recently made their debut for the year – and to further add to the excitement for craft beer lovers, the formerly seasonal beers have now been made available year-round due to popular demand.
Orpheus is most known for its delicious sour offerings, and Serpent Bite and Transmigration both highlight the brewery's passion for sours and hops. In a recent feature, Craftbeer.com named Orpheus brewmaster and founder Jason Pellett "Atlanta's Sour Beer Trailblazer". Here's a little more about the beers and Orpheus Brewing:
Serpent Bite - Just as the Serpent Bite and loss of Eurydice was the catalyst for Orpheus’s journey, the brewery's love for hops and sour beers was the catalyst for Orpheus Brewing. Serpent Bite is a dry-hopped, sour saison, with a tart bite, and notes of orange and tropical fruit.The unique hops used in this beer (Mandarina Bavaria, Pekko) lend to its memorable flavor. With a juicy flavor reminiscent of a mimosa, this is the perfect warm-weather or brunch beer. Pairs well with breakfast foods, rich meats, fatty fish and ripe cheese. Available on draft and in 6-pack cans. Distributed throughout GA and AL.
Hops: Mandarina Bavaria, Pekko
Grain: two-row barley, white wheat
Fermentation: House Lactobacillus Mother, Saison yeast
Label Design: Dosa Kim
Transmigration of Souls - Inspired by the Orphic bone tablets which explore the dichotomous nature of life and death, Orpheus Brewing's Bone Tablet series reveals the many sides of the IPA. Transmigration of Souls is an irresponsibly hopped Double IPA, bursting with life from an absurd amount of aromatic hops. You’ll experience a bouquet of orange, lemon, and tropical fruit sitting on top of a clean, dry malt body. This beer is very overpowering; just pair it with another Transmigration of Souls. If you must eat, Transmigration of Souls is bold and dry, with an abundance of tropical fruit. It will pair well with spicy food. Available on draft and in 6-pack cans. Distributed throughout GA and AL.
Hops: Featuring Azacca and Wakatu
Grain: Two-row barley, white wheat
Fermentation: American Ale yeast
Label Design: Sam Parker

I wanted to share an inspiring, thoughtful partnership that is making a huge difference for those right in our backyard. The Farm-to-Table for Seniors in Need collaboration between Peachtree Road Farmers Market & Meals On Wheels Atlanta (MOWA) packs three incredible punches at once:
- Eliminates food waste
- Supports local farmers
- Provides local seniors in need with access to fresh vegetables
Currently, one in six Atlanta seniors struggles with hunger.
Through this young partnership, over 5,000 lbs fresh, locally grown produce have been supplied to Atlanta seniors. Each week Peachtree Road Farmers Market purchases around 150 lbs of unsold produce from their market vendors and sells to MOWA at a highly discounted rate. The program is the brainchild of Saltyard's Nick Leahy who is an advisory member of both MOWA and the Peachtree Road Farmers Market. Creative Loafing ran a piece about the program in October, but it still needs support to fulfill its potential! The market reopens April 1, 2017 and you can find out more about the market here.
