Like drinking an Arnold Palmer. Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse

Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse can

Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse will join last year’s insanely popular Watermelon Gose in the brewery’s seasonal category this year.

The brewing team in Athens, Georgia has a penchant for lower alcohol by volume beers and kettle souring. Two instances you will see more of over the coming coming months. If you ask us, that’s why they are so good at day drinking

Sweet tea and golf are southern staples; easily the inspiration for Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse. The tea is courtesy of Maya Tea in Tucson, Arizona.

Terrapin T-Time Berliner Weisse will be available in 12 ounce cans and draft starting in Spring, 2017.

Style: Berliner Weisse (w/ Tea, Lemon)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: March, 2017

Unknown Hospitali-tea, a tea laden amber ale returns

Unknown Hospitali-Tea

Unknown Hospitali-tea has return once again to the brewery’s lineup.

It’s the south, and sweet tea is king. The Charlotte, North Carolina based brewery created a caramel malt heavy amber ale, and added black tea leaves and orange blossom honey. The hops mimic lemons. The result? A boozy sweet tea style beer

Made with black tea leaves and sweet orange blossom honey, this beer is on the lighter side with great caramel malts. The finish of sweet tea and hops provide a new floral lemon aroma. Plain and simple, Hospitali-tea is refreshing.

Unknown Hospitali-tea is a 12 once can and draft offering for the summer.

Style: Amber Ale (w/ Black Tea, Honey)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.

Return: June, 2016
