Terrapin Beer Company will release a draft only beer in April dubbed “Tree Hugger.” There’s a little backstory on this one.
Terrapin’s Spike Buckowski got pretty friendly with the altbier style on a recent trip to Germany. Altbiers originated in Dusseldorf, Germany and are malty-nutty in flavor. Tree Hugger will play off this style, but a little hoppier. A hoppy altbier.
Some of the proceeds of Tree Hugger will benefit Decatur Green Fest. The fest is a free concert on the Decatur Courthouse Square featuring local and regional musical artists benefitting the Dogwood Alliance and the Oakhurst Community Garden Project.
Availability: Draft only
Arrival: April, 2012 (Tentative)
