Wild Heaven's relatively quick leap from bars to your local grocer's shelves is pretty easy to explain - it's a great beer. Founder Nick Purdy teamed up with brewmaster of Eric Johnson of Athens beer mecca Trappeze Pub, who has spent the last 16 years brewing. From the first sip, it's clear that that Wild Heaven was not just another well-marketed beer of middling quality. Both the dark and malty Ode to Mercy and the hop-happy Invocation ale are tasty brews that any beer aficionado will appreciate.
Already on tap in dozens of bars around town, Wild Heaven bottles are now available in almost 100 stores, including some of my favorites like
, Ale Yeah! and even in-town Whole Foods. While there's nothing like a draught beer, sometimes you just want to crack open a cold one and relax at your own home. Now you can do just that with one of Hop City 's very own beers. Atlanta
