Here at Cahaba Brewing Company, we are continually brewing small batches, collaboration and specialty brews. So many in our troop savor the simple process behind making beer; the aromas, the heat, the sweat equity. It's all worth it when you sit down with a friend and taste it for the first time. We are afforded the opportunity to experiment with new hops, develop new brewing methods for efficiency, and try out new recipes. Many of these beers are often short-lived and for limited release. Sometimes, you can only try them in our taproom. Other times, we have a limited amount released to a few places around town. Every once and a while, we fancy a beer so much, that we bring it back for another round.
