Bob Townsend’s Beer Pick: Three Taverns 2017 Inceptus Georgia Wild Ale

Source: Atlanta Journal Constitution

At Three Taverns Brewery in Decatur, Belgian-born brewmaster, Joran Van Ginderachter, has been experimenting with a beer called Inceptus (Latin for “beginning”).

It’s a spontaneously fermented wild ale with an unlikely back story.

During the December 2013 Atlanta “Snowpocalypse,” Van Ginderachter decided that the temperature was just right to wrangle some wild yeast from the air around the brewery for what he would call a “Georgia wild ale.”

Since then, he’s used that “mother beer” to infect wine barrels filled with a wort made with pilsner, wheat and spelt malt. Successive generations of Inceptus have taken on a variety ...

It’s better to be an early bird, especially the fresh kind.

Opt for an organic, pastured-raised turkey from a local farmer this holiday season. While you may have to reserve your bird or visit a farmer’s market, it can be worth the investment—literally—since shopping locally helps the community. Plus, you can feel confident that your fresh turkey will not contain additives unlike the typical, store-bought frozen turkey, which may be injected with up to 12-percent of a solution containing ingredients like sugar, salt and artificial flavorings. The easiest way to tell the difference between the ...
