I’m starting to think that Terrapin Beer Co’s (Athens, GA) “Spike” is the collab-iest MF’er in the craft beer game. Don’t believe me? Let’s review.
Over the past few weeks, he has brewed a Tennessee/Georgia/Water/Football rivalry in Knoxville at SawWorks.
Then he brewed another Georgia/Florida collaboration with Swamp Head in Gainesville.
Another round of the Shmaltz/Terrapin Beer For Hope is hitting shelves soon too. (Coffee & Chocolate anyone?)
We aren’t even close to done yet. Spike has also done collaborations with Thornbridge (England), New Holland (Social Potion, 2012), Brasserie Franches Montagnes (Spike & Jerome’s Barley Ryne), Boundary Bay (released in New Zealand), The Georgia Brewer’s Guild, Nogne-O (Rye Porter), Multiple editions of the Midnight Project with Left Hand Brewing, and The Georgia Theater (kind of).
Today, he’s brewing in Faversham, in southeast London, England at Shepard Neame. Britain’s oldest brewery, founded in 1698. He’s brewing Terrapin’s Tree Hugger there.
Needless to say, he gets around. Below, Spike talks about his newest release.
