Terrapin Rise-n-Shine, second in “Wood” series this month

Terrapin Rise-n-Shine

Terrapin Rise-n-Shine will be the second release in the brewery’s Ales from the Wood Series this month.

This brand new series started with a collaboration with Richland Rum, out of Richland, Georgia. Brewery co-founder and brewmaster “Spike” aged their imperial India pale ale Hopzilla in the distillery’s rum barrels. Next up – Terrapin Rise-n-Shine.

If you haven’t already noticed, the name sounds a bit like another beer, W-n-B (aka Wake n’ Bake) for a good reason. That beer is aged in Tennessee whiskey oak barrels.

Deep inside a Tennessee whiskey barrel our award winning W-n-B Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout  has been patiently aging for over one year. Please enjoy “Rise-n-Shine,” the second offering in our “Ales from the Wood” series of beers.

Terrapin Rise-n-Shine has been aging in oak for over a year.  22 ounce bottles and draft debut at a special release on December 11th. Distribution to follow shortly after.r

Hops: Nuggest

Terrapin Richland Reserve: New Beer, New Barrel Aged Series

Terrapin Richland Reserve

Terrapin Richland Reserve is the launch of not only a new beer, but a new series. The Athens, Georgia based brewery recently partnered with Georgia’s Richland Rum.

Terrapin Richland Reserve starts as 2015 Hopzilla (the beer is now retired) and aged it in Richland Rum barrels for the past year.

A pair of Georgia’s liquid artisans come together by combining two art forms, craft brewing, and craft distilling. Richland Reserve, the first in our “Ales from the Wood” series, is made from vintage 2014 HopZilla “Double IPA” and has been masterfully aged in Richland Rum barrels for over one year.

Terrapin Richland Reserve is a late July, 2015 release in 22oz bottles. No draft available for this release.

Style: Imperial IPA (Barrel Aged. Rum)
Hops: Bravo, Chinook, Centennial, Citra (Dry Hop)
Malts: Marris Otter

Availability: 22oz Bottles.
Release: Late July, 2015
