New Beer Release: Citras Maximus
Introducing a new beer release from Gate City Brewing Company, an India Pale Lager (IPL) named Citras Maximus. Citras Maximus is that perfect gateway beer to warm weather, a full-bodied lager exclusively hopped with Citra Hops. A huge double dry hop addition adds flavors and aromas that are both tropical and citrusy. With a 5.5% abv, it’s a great option for pool days or floating down a river. Gate City brewer, Pat Rains, says “Citras Maximus is a beer both lager and IPA fans will enjoy due to its amazing hop profile and crisp lightness- this is a beer you’ll want to crush all summer long”. 6 packs of Citras Maximus are available at major retailers and in Gate City Brewing Co’s taproom.
With Atlanta quickly becoming nationally known for it’s growing craft beer industry, Gate City Brewing Company is a noteworthy up and coming brewery; it was recently named on the Brewer’s Association ‘50 Fastest growing Breweries in the US’ list and has had steady growth since it’s opening in 2015. Gate City Brewing Company’s two-story brewhouse and taproom are anchored in the heart of Historic Roswell. At the corner of Canton and Magnolia Streets, what used to be two Roswell mechanic shops is now a 30bbl brewhouse and 3,000 sqft taproom with up to twenty house-brewed beers on draft. Stop in each weekend for live music, taproom exclusive beers, 6-pack tastings to-go, community-based events and an overall good time—where the history of our
growing city meets the future of craft beer culture.
