Joyland Cream Ale (5.5% ABV, 20 IBUs)

Joyland is an easy-drinking cream ale combines grains, grits, vanilla seeds, and Mandarina Bavaria hops for a smooth and refreshing taste for a great year-round ale. Joyland is the name of a 1921 amusement park built for African Americans in Atlanta during Jim Crow.

It later became the Joyland Park neighborhood.
