More SEC Football rivalry. Terrapin Beer Company’s “Spike” is in Florida today brewing a beer with Swamp Head (Gainesville) on a new collaboration called Bitter Rivalry. If you know nothing of the rivalry that is the Florida Gators and Georgia Bulldogs, it’s… huge.
The two teams can’t play at their own stadiums. They have to play on neutral ground in Jacksonville, Florida. “The Landing” in Jacksonville becomes the worlds largest outdoor cocktail party (more like, biggest outdoor $hit talking/drunk fest) in America. Trust me, I’ve been.
The rivalry heats up today with this new collaboration. Swamp Head is teasing details, but haven’t commented on the style. There are oranges involved, we know this much.
The Georgia/Florida game this year is November 2. There will be release parties and activities around this beer closer to the bloodbath. Oh, and by the way this isn’t Spike’s first SEC rivalry brew this year. In August he went to Knoxville, Tennessee (that’s UT territory) to brew another rivalry brew.
