Great place to hang out on a sunny day. Lots of beer for your dollar. Great vibe. No frills. Beer. Music. Dogs. Play baggo or Frisbee if you want. Friendly knowledgeable staff that is eager to talk about their beer. Always a couple of one offs available as well. Gift shop.

Limited hours but worth the stop. You can get in on a tour that gives you a glass and 8 5 oz pours of pour. Skip the tour and just head out back for the pours which are served in a big open yard with cornhole, volleyball and live music. Would be a cool spot to host some party. Worth stopping by if you can fit in between the hours.

Giant warehouse brewery, almost in the middle of nowhere, but close enough to Athens to get huge college crowds. For the Saturday tour during Mardi Gras it took nearly an hour tonget in. But then, decent beers, good music set up in a tent outside, and good crowds. Worth the effort.

Only gets knocked for its selection due to the fact that they canít serve that many different beers during the "tour". However, had a great time at a hell of a value. $10 for 8 half pours all while enjoying a Phish cover band on a beautiful day. They didnít have anything too special the day I was there, but still great fun.

Great college hangout, where were these places in 92? Restricted to two pints. Standard selection on my visit.

While there were no rarities on tap, there was a solid 6 beers available to choose from The ambiance is lively and fun. I like the beer garden outside as well as the interior tasting room. The tour was pretty fun, with some factoids revealed about Terrapin Beer Company. Itís 10 bucks for a glass and 8 tickets which can get you 8 half pours of brew. Great deal. I had such a fun time Iíd love to come back and do it again. Next time Iíll bring some extra cash to purchase some of the really cool merchandise in the gift shop. They have some pretty bitchiní swag.

Terrapinís public access is limited to its "tours" on afternoons Wednesday-Saturday. When the brewery is open to the public during these times, it DOES become more of a hangout than a "tour". A band plays at the brewery during each tour. When weather permits, the large outdoor space hosts the band, an additional bar serving samples, and several games of cornhole. The selection of beers varies greatly each time I visit, with probably about 6 or 7 offerings on average. Lately they have been pouring a Side Project and the current Georgia Theatre series beer in addition to year-round and seasonal offerings. Also pretty recently, a local vendor has been showing up (intermittently) to sell Terrapin-cooked brats, but Iíve yet to indulge in one. Ideally, all of this would occur at a taphouse or pub adjoined to the brewery, but due to GA law, a "tour" is the only way to allow public access. This unfortunately, seems to make the actual tour underwhelming. It is often difficult to hear the tour guide and, in my opinion, only appeals to those with an extremely basic knowledge of the brewing process. Most advanced or in-depth questions seem to remain unanswered or side-stepped. While I know that the tour guide may not be the person to ask about upcoming releases or other potentially-privileged information, a generally more in-depth tour would probably appeal to a wider audience (including those with little or no prior knowledge of brewing). I love my local brewery and love visiting and supporting the guys at Terrapin, but a more-established tour rather than something that seems slapped together would be much appreciated. Note: Pint glasses with 8 tasting tickets are now $10

Visited while in Athens on business in February, 2009. Large warehouse type brewery with a separate merchandise area. A band was playing on this Friday night which made it rather difficult to talk to my friend. The tour was pretty brief and the young woman giving it didnt seem to know as much as she should about the brewing process. At any rate, it was worth the few minutes we spent on it. Nothing exceedingly unusual on draft this evening, and the place seemed like it was a college hangout more than anything else. We did have a great conversation with some other beers geeks in the merchandise area, but other than that, the experience was fairly mediocre.
