Terrapin Beer Co (Athens, GA) created Tree Hugger last year for Decatur, Georgia’s Green Fest in support of the Dogwood Alliance. Terrapin brewmaster “Spike” started a love affair with the altbier style on a trip to Germany. The style originated in Dusseldorf. Spike came home to Athens, Georgia to create a hoppier play off this style. A hoppy altbier named Tree Hugger. Draft offerings extended beyond the festival to tap handles around Georgia due to it’s popularity.
In 2013, Terrapin will promote Tree Hugger to year round status. It is actually the first brew on this week in the new 100 Barrel brewhouse. Look for it on draft and it bottles starting in March, 2013.
