We know how excited we were to partner with Chicago artist Tony Fitzpatrick on a collaborative beer series, and it’s amazing to see others share in our excitement. On Wednesday, August 30, we release the next round of cans in the liquid form of Atomic Child.
This juice bomb clocks in at 7.2% and radiates dank, tropical aromas. The electric yellow ale is brewed with white wine grapes and a metric ton of hops (Citra, Mosaic, Orbit). One might expect an explosion of bitterness, but instead, a viscous and slightly sweet body slide into a complex dry finish that blooms like a mushroom cloud on the tongue.
For this release, we’ll be making a special donation to the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, donating $1 for each glass of beer sold and 4-pack purchased, as well as the profits from all merch sold during the release.
The Bulletin was founded in 1945 by scientists who, during World War II, researched and developed the first nuclear weapons as part of the Manhattan Project. These scientists “could not remain aloof to the consequences of their work” and thus The Bulletin was born to assess scientific advancements that involve both benefits and risks to humanity. From that, the organization aims to influence public policy and protect the planet.
Some mornings we struggle to just make coffee; meanwhile, the Bulletin is connecting scientific research, foreign policy, and public engagement. The Atomic Child release seems like the perfect opportunity to support The Bulletin’s work. So come out to support an amazing organization, celebrate the Child, purchase some cool merch, and meet the man behind the art. Speaking of which, we sat down with Tony earlier this week to chat. Check it out if you haven’t already.
