Noctua Chaos: The First [Barrel-Aged Beer] to Exist

In Greek mythology, Chaos was the first thing to exist. In the lore of Akademia Brewing Company, it thus made sense for Noctua Chaos to be the name of our first-ever barrel-aged beer.

Hoprodite NE IPA: Our Big, Juicy Thank-You

It takes a lot of love of craft beer to open a brewpub. In our case, it’s a big, juicy love — perfectly exemplified by Hoprodite. Hoprodite is the latest IPA to come out of our brite tank, and we think it’s the perfect way to say “thank you” to the big, juicy love Athens
