Athens, Georgia based Terrapin Beer Co. is building a new pilot brewery at Suntrust Park, the new home of the Atlanta Braves. The stadium opens in time for the 2017 season.
The build is separated into two parts: The Microbrewery, aka the ATL Brew Lab, and The Terrapin Taproom, which will feature Atlanta famous Fox Bros. BBQ. The Battery, a section adjacent to the stadium that will house both the ATL Brew Lab and the Terrapin Taproom, will be open year-round. Concessionaire Delaware North will be running the Terrapin Taproom.
The Brew Lab is a 5-Barrel system which will serve as a pilot system for the Athens, Georgia brewery as well. Terrapin co-founder “Spike” Buckowski mentioned at a media event yesterday that the brewery has never really had a pilot system, so this addition is especially new and exciting.
Construction on the taproom and ATL Brew Lab begins in November, with completion by the spring home opener in 2017.
Terrapin is already planning a few fun collaborations out of the ATL Brew Lab, including one they hope will be with a few notable ex-Braves players.
