Creature Comforts Table Beer
Creature Comforts Brewing Co., Athens, GA
Available seasonally on draft and in 6-pack 12-ounce cans
De la Senne Taras Boulba, a hoppy blonde ale from Belgium, was the inspiration, and Creature Comforts describes its Table Beer as “a hop-forward Belgian-style ale.” That it is, with a panoply of Sterling, Saphir, Lemondrop, Cascade and Comet hops added at various stages.
Pilsner malt, as well as spelt, flaked oats and Belgian yeast give it a subtle complexity. But mostly it’s a balanced, easy-drinking beer, with earthy and floral aromas and flavors, and soft lemony-citrus notes that come together to match a wide variety of food styles.
At just 4.2% alcohol, Table Beer is light and refreshing, but not wimpy. Beyond its affinity for a turkey sandwich with cranberry sauce, it makes a clever companion for everything from French to Asian dishes.
