Terrapin Beer Company was born when two brewers met while working together at a microbrewery in Atlanta. Looking around at what other breweries in the SE were doing, Spike and John felt they could make a contribution. Realizing that anyone could make just another pale ale, brown ale or stout, Spike and John set their sights on crafting beers unlike any that were currently available in the SE.

Terrapin introduced its first beer, the Rye Pale Ale in April of 2002. Six months later while only available on draft in Athens, Terrapin’s sole offering won the American Pale Ale Gold Medal at the 2002 Great American Beer Festival. Only six months old, Terrapin had arrived in style!

Since they were going to be making unique beers, Spike and John knew from the beginning that Terrapin Beer Company should be located in a city as distinctive as their brews. What better place than Athens, GA? Both Athens and Terrapin have a great love of music, are committed to the environment, and practice living life to the fullest.

History rolls forward and so too has Terrapin. These days John and Spike are enjoying Terrapins new 40,000 square foot brewing facilities and taking advantage of the space to brew new innovative and exciting beers. The year round line up now includes the Rye Pale Ale, Golden Ale, and the Hopsecutioner. Terrapin has also released many other beers and garnered several awards both in the U.S.A and internationally.


Hopsecutioner IPA ABV 7.1% IBU 71
You love hops, you ask for hops and this killer IPA delivers! Hopsecutioner earns its name by using six different types of hops giving it a fresh citrus and pine hop nose with a beautifully bitter finish. A strong malt back bone keeps this aggressive IPA well balanced. This IPA is made for hop lovers a you may lose your hop head over this one!

Hop Karma Brown IPA ABV 6.0% IBU 65
The Terrapin Hop Karma Brown IPA (formerly known as the India Style Brown Ale) is a head-on collision between a hoppy west coast IPA and a complex malty brown ale. Brewed with 5 varieties of hops and 7 different malts, this hybrid style represents the best of both worlds

“Moo-Hoo” Chocolate Milk Stout ABV 6% IBU 30
The Terrapin “Moo-Hoo” Chocolate Milk Stout proudly uses cocoa nibs and shells from Olive and Sinclair Chocolate Company to give this beer its great taste! An appetizing cold weather treat this sweet stout is rich creamy and uniquely satisfying. Beer and Chocolate together they truly make one of life’s great indulgences

Samurai Krunkles ABV 7.1% IBU 70
Taking the Orient and the rest of the world by storm, Krunkles returns! In this edition of the bearded IPA brewer’s saga, “Samurai Krunkles,” as he was once known in the Far East, pulls out all the hops from his katana’s sheath to make this Asian flared brew. While traveling around the Pacific in a souped up rickshaw pulled by his trusty side kick Cato, Krunkles uncovered unique brewing ingredients such as jasmine rice, jasmine green tea and the finest ginger the Orient had to offer for this Samurai master’s ale.

Special Anniversary Ale ABV 10.0% IBU 30
“It is absolutely paradoxical; we cannot understand it, and we don’t know what it means. But we have proved it, and therefore we know it must be the truth.”

-Benjamin Peirce

That’s a little how we feel about the last 10 years and the phenominal growth we’ve enjoyed here at Terrapin. Join us in celebrating ten years of Terrapin with an Ale brewed with a Belgian yeast strain, Coriander, two kinds of orange peel and Chamomile. We chose to express this beautiful beer with what has been described as a beautiful equation… sip the beer while you ponder the math and our beautiful universe full of so much possibility!

Wake ‘N Bake Coffee Oatmeal Stout
ABV 8.6% IBU 50
Black as night, this coffee stout is thick, rich and full of real coffee flavor. Brewed with a special blend of beans from all over the world developed and roasted specifically for Terrapin by our friends at Jittery Joe’s Coffee right here in Athens, Ga. This unique blend of coffee produces a robust and flavorful beer.
