Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the lead members of the Trump Administration’s White House Coronavirus Task Force addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, now has his own beer thanks to the folks at local Wild Heaven Beer (which is now serving taco kits, btw.)

Called “Fauci Spring,” the pale ale brewed with Acai and “not-yet-named experimental hops,” is part of Wild Heaven Beers’ Happiest Hour Exploration Project.

The 4.25% ABV Fauci Spring has hints of “tropical, earthy, cocoa, and berry” notes.

Fauci Spring is available now and for as long as Dr. Fauci keeps the nation up to snuff on what’s going on with the novel coronavirus.

Wild Heaven has also brewed the “Don’t Stand So Close To Me,” reminding Atlantans to practice social distancing.

The classic 5.5% AVB Vienna lager is brewed with Saaz and Hallertau hops and is “crisp, floral, and refreshing.”
