Terrapin’s Hop Harvest This Saturday!

This Saturday, Terrapin Brewing in Athens, Georgia hosts they’re first “Hop Harvest”!  From Terrapin-

Terrapin Beer Co is hosting a celebration of “everything hoppy” with their 1st annual “Hop Harvest Festival” this weekend Saturday September 25th   from 4:30 — 7:30pm.

The featured beer of the night will be the first ever pouring of Terrapin’s new fresh hop (or “wet —hop”) limited-release beer “So Fresh & So Green Green”. This very special beer is brewed with Amarillo hops cones flown in overnight from the Yakima Valley in Washington earlier this month. Brian “Spike” Buckowski, co — founder & brew master at the brewery, plans to make this beer annually so Saturday will be the beginning of a Terrapin tradition!

Terrapin will also serve 6 casks of ale each dry hopped with a different variety of hops. These casks will offer people a unique tasting opportunity to identify the distinguishing characteristics of different hop varietals. These unique casks will be tapped at 5:30.

Other plans for the festivities include!

  • Special guests John Isenhour from Hop Union and Patrick LaZell from Country Malt Group/Canada Malting Company to explain the unique role hops play in the brewing process and to educate visitors about the history and biology of these bittering beauties.
  • Farm 255 will have their mobile Farm Cart on hand with locally grown farm to table goodies for sale.
  • Live music by the Welfare Liners local Athens Bluegrass favorites.
  • Hopzilla, Big Hoppy Monster, Hopsecutioner, Hop Karma and more of your favorite hoppy beers from Terrapin!
