Terrapin Chopsecutioner, a lower alcohol by volume edition of the brewery’s flagship IPA, debuts this month.
Maybe drinking 7.3% ABV IPA for 9 innings of baseball in a hot city like Atlanta isn’t recommended. Terrapin Chopsecutioner is here to help. The Athens, Georgia based brewery has a new 5 barrel pilot system at Suntrust Park, the new home of the Atlanta Braves and is the birthplace of this unique beer.
Attendees to Suntrust Park this summer will see quite a few unique recipes coming out of the new ATL BrewLab, starring with Chopsecutioner, which is actually aged on Mizuno wood bat chips. The hop lineup is the same as the bigger Hopsecutioner sibling, but with a lighter body, lower ABV, and a touch of wood flavor from the bats.
Terrapin Chopsecutioner will be available at Terrapin’s ATL BrewLab year-round when the season opens next week.
5% ABV, 60 IBUs
There is another IPA aged on baseball bats, dubbed ‘Homefront’, that benefits a great cause -Operation Homefront.

A Belgian-style strong ale and bourbon barrels play nice in Wicked Weed Devilwood. The time spent in the wood gives this beer a touch of coconut flavor.

The demons see all from above, and harvest the pilgrims for their own devilry. Never lower your eyes in Devilwood…

Scofflaw GOAT IPA debuts this Thursday, settling a bet from Atlanta’s ill-fated Super Bowl.
We all know what happened. Atlanta had a massive lead in this year’s Super Bowl, only to see it disappear by the end of the game. The city’s breweries made a few Super Bowl bets, most notably SweetWater with Boston Beer Company, and Scofflaw with Shipyard Brewing. SweetWater has already paid up. Now it’s Scofflaw’s turn.
Scofflaw GOAT IPA is a “New England Style” IPA, chosen because of where the Patriots call home. Scofflaw’s brewmaster Travis Herman worked with Shipyard’s head brew Joe Rank on the recipe.
The new IPA honors the “Greatest Of All Time” New England Patriots while celebrating the friendly collaboration among these two craft brewers. Deep with never-quit character, G.O.A.T. is an unfiltered IPA with a murky first impression that leads into winning flavors and aromas and a miraculous come-from-behind finish.
Scofflaw GOAT IPA will be available on tap at the Atlanta brewery starting Thursday, March 30th. Scofflaw’s Herman sums up his thoughts on the beer: “For spring days when the Atlanta weather is cool, we’ll use lower pressure in our kegs so Patriots fans can hold on to their glass.”
Hops: Simcoe, Amarillo, Mosaic
Availability: Draft only, limited.
