Phlux Capacitor brewed by Terrapin Beer Company - Athens, Georgia


Side Project Number 16 - Phlux Capacitor brewed by Terrapin Beer Company - Athens, Georgia       

Time traveling in at number 16 in our “Side Project” series of beers is “Phlux Capacitor.” This wood aged Bully is brewed to an unknown style from another dimension. Rumor has it that this beer was first invented on the planet Vulcan on Saturday, Nov. 12, 1955. The recipe was discovered here on Earth on Saturday, Nov. 12, 1985 at 10:04 P.M., scribbled on the back of a sports almanac inside an abandoned DeLorean. It is said that the speedometer in the car was frozen at 88mph and it took 1.21 gigawatts of power to jumpstart the car Back To The Future! We hope you enjoy our interpretation of this totally fictitious ale…Aged on French Oak. ABV: 9.7%. IBUs: 88. Malts: 2-Row Pale Malt, Munich I, Crystal 24, Crystal 65, Crystal 85, and Special Roast. Hops: Columbus, Nugget, Bravo, and Chinook

Terrapin Phlux Capacitor

       
Beer Review by Beer Advocate
The latest Side Project,#16.Poured into an imperial nonic a hazed deep amber with a thinner lacey slight off white head atop. Sharp resiny hops and light oak from the aging in the nose,some sweet alcohol zip is there as well,the hops are real assertive wich is a very good thing. Somewhat boozy and fruity with some caramel that quickly melds into resiny sticky hops, love the balance and love the big hops! This style is my favorite style when done right and this is done right, big hefty boozy malty and a large dose of deep resiny hops, I loved it. I love the hop burps left behind.
  

      

Terrapin Beer Company
Terrapin Beer Company was founded by Brian "Spike" Buckowski and John Cochran. The two men actually wanted to develop their own brewery, in 1998, before they had their own beer. After finally developing a beer the two were contemplating names when Buckowski, a Grateful Dead fan, mentioned Terrapin. The name comes from "Terrapin Station," which is a Grateful Dead album. After three years of talking to bankers and investors to no avail, Spike and John realized the only way to start Terrapin Beer Company was to begin as a contract brewery.

It released its first beer, the Terrapin Rye Pale Ale, in Spring 2002 at the Classic City Brewfest. Six months later this beer, which was sold only in Athens, Georgia, was awarded the American Pale Ale Gold Medal at the 2002 Great American Beer Festival. With demand for Terrapin growing daily, the Rye Pale Ale was soon made available to beer fans in Atlanta, Georgia as well. Soon after, Terrapin was chosen by producers of "Blue Ribbon" on Turner South to be featured on a TV special about breweries in the South. The viewers of this show voted Terrapin as the Best Brewery in the Southeast by an overwhelming margin of 72%.

When a Georgia state law capping beers at 6% alcohol was overturned in 2004, Spike and John turned their attention to creating a line of seasonal beers that pushed the envelope of traditional brewing. It was this desire to challenge the palates of beer drinkers everywhere that led to the creation of the Monster Beer Tour. The seasonal brews consist of Big Hoppy Monster, Wake-n-Bake Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout, Rye Squared, and All-American Imperial Pilsner.

Terrapin's brewery in Athens, GA is and open for tours. Located at 265 Newton Bridge Rd. in Athens, GA, the new brewery is 45,000 square feet. Tours are Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 5:30-7:30.
