NAMESAKE: Atlanta-area brewery Wild Heaven Beer has begun to produce a second, larger batch of Fauci Spring, a popular pale ale named after Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top expert on infectious diseases.

Nick Purdy, co-founder of Wild Heaven Beer, said the first run of Fauci Spring surpassed his expectations in terms of demand and the company is now brewing enough beer for another 1,300 cases. Purdy added that his brewery’s effort is all in good fun during uncertain times.

Purdy said Fauci Spring is part of a series of so-called pandemic beers his brewery is producing. The newest batch includes We Will Meet Again, a rye India pale ale with a nod to Queen Elizabeth II’s recent message of hope to the people in the U.K. amid the coronavirus crisis.
