Tis’ the season for peace, love, and puffins! Georgia Aquarium and Atlanta Brewing Company are kicking off this holiday season with the latest beer in their collaboration: Puffin Chocolate Porter. Puffin Chocolate Porter is a robust porter brewed with delicious cacao, and represents the fifth seasonal release between the Aquarium and Atlanta Brewing Company. A portion of the proceeds from Puffin Chocolate Porter sales will go towards the Aquarium's vital research and conservation efforts.
Puffin Chocolate Porter will be available in select stores and on draft at Atlanta Brewing Company the week of Nov. 12. In addition, there will be a Puffin Chocolate Porter launch party on Friday, Nov. 9 at Atlanta Brewing Company from 5:00 – 10:00 p.m. where guests can enjoy an evening of craft beer, live music, food trucks, and a first taste of Puffin Chocolate Porter!
Atlanta Brewing Company, Georgia’s first craft brewery, and Georgia Aquarium created Puffin Chocolate Porter to celebrate the Aquarium’s newest exhibit, puffins. Puffins are pelagic seabirds, meaning they spend much of their time off-shore on the open sea, only returning to land for breeding and raising their chicks. They can be found in the Northern Pacific and Southern Arctic from the coast of Japan to Northeast Asia, and from Southern California to Alaska.
Georgia Aquarium is home to two of the three species of puffins: horned puffins and tufted puffins. Along with other species of seabirds, these adorable puffins were introduced to the public in January of 2018 with the unveiling of a new seabird habitat in the Aquarium’s Cold Water Quest Gallery.
