Beer Pick: Celebrate Bold Monk Brewing’s first can release with Chant Lager

On Saturday, Bold Monk Brewing will be hosting a deluxe, all-access launch party in honor of its first batch of beers off the canning line.

Limited to 100 people, the $100 entry fee includes one case of Chant Lager, one case of Shared Spirit IPA, two complimentary beers, a selection of appetizers curated by chef Jason Hall, and a $20 Bold Monk gift card redeemable toward future visits.

In addition, Bold Monk brewers JR Roberts and Neal Engleman will be conducting personalized tours of the brewery.

Find tickets online at or by calling the Bold Monk reservation line at 404-390-3288.

For those who can’t make the launch party, Bold Monk will be releasing six-pack cans of Chant Lager and Shared Spirit IPA through Liberator Distributing soon.

And with that, Chant Lager is this week’s Beer Pick.

Beer Pick 

Chant Lager

Blod Monk Brewing, Atlanta

Available on draft at Bold Monk and in 12-ounce six-pack cans soon


Chant Lager is Bold Monk’s naturally carbonated house “lagerbier.” Brewmaster John “JR” Roberts says it “utilizes the soft Atlanta water to provide a delicate profile for the ingredients to shine” — including Barke Pilsner malt, and Czech Saaz and whole-cone German Tettnanger hops.

The result is a lovely beer that falls somewhere between a Czech and German pilsner. Pale gold with a bubbly white head, it’s at once soft and crisp on the palate, with floral notes of honey and spice, and a pleasant touch of fruitiness and bitterness lingering in the finish.

Pair with

At Bold Monk, I’ve tried Chant Lager with confit chicken wings and mussels with chorizo and frites, which both proved to be delicious pairings. But I think it would work equally well with cheese and charcuterie, pizza, and all sorts of seafood dishes, too.
