A Well-Balanced Wheat

We’re thrilled to announce our latest collaboration with Atlanta Brewing Company – Wobbegong Wheat! Brewed in partnership with Georgia Aquarium, proceeds from this and other Georgia Aquarium series beers goes to support research and conservation of marine life globally.

This release is a pleasant wheat ale with strong notes of bread crust and sweet grains. New Zealand Motueka hops lend a pleasant lemon-lime citrus taste to compliment the wheat. A clean fermentation profile with medium body and high carbonation makes this beer extremely refreshing.

Celebrating the wobbegong, a bottom-dwelling shark, the can depicts an illustration of a tasseled wobbegong – one of the species that call Georgia Aquarium home. A master of disguise, the tasseled wobbegong is almost undetectable when resting quietly on the bottom. With its beard of fleshy tassels that obscure the shape of its head, pattern of dark and light spots to break up the shape of its body, and enlarged, drape-like fins, this shark is an excellent ambush predator. The wobbegong lies motionless on the bottom, blending into the reef structure until small fish or other prey move within striking distance, then it quickly opens its mouth to suck in the prey.
