This big, black, boozy monster was aged in bourbon barrels and sports delicious vanilla and oak flavors. It's easily one of Red Brick's biggest and best beers to date. 10 percent ABV, 12-ounce bottle, 4-packs, $11.99.
This super-limited fresh-hop amber, which kicks off Monday Night's "black tie series," will be available in 22-ounce bomber bottles. 5.5 percent ABC, 22-ounce bottles, $7.99.
Decatur's latest craft brewery just released the bottled version of its slightly bitter "American IPA on a Belgian road trip" in September. 7.5 percent ABV, 12-ounce bottle, 4-pack, $8.99.
This American-style imperial red boasts tons of hops — Centennial, Chinook, Cascade, Willamette, Mt. Hood — with citrus-y, floral, spicy notes. It's set for a mid-October release. 8.6 percent ABV. 22-ounce bottle, $5.99.
This crisp, hoppy, sessionable pale ale — Terrapin's first beer in a can — is perfect for a fall camping trip or evening in the park. 4.7 percent ABV, 12-ounce cans, 12-pack, $13.99-$16.99.
Until Jekyll starts bottling, this delicious new beer is draft-only in local bars and the Alpharetta brewery's taproom. In the meantime, fill your growler with this citrus-packed India Pale Ale at retail stores such as Ale Yeah! Decatur and DRAFT Filling Station in North Druid Hills. 6.7 percent ABV, 64-ounce growler, $11.99-$13.99.
