So Fresh And So Green Green brewed by Terrapin Beer Co. in Athens, GA

Terrapin So Fresh And So Green Green brewed by Terrapin Beer Company in Athens, Georgia
Don’t you love it so hoppy? Freshly harvested from our tanks come special project So Fresh & So Green, Green. This brew is made with a single hop variety in its fresh, or “wet”, form–straight off the vine. Hops are harvested and immediately flown overnight to the brewery in Athens; brewing begins within 36 hours of the hops’ harvest out in the Yakima Valley. Each year we change up the hop variety… 2013 So Fresh & So Green, Green features Centennial hops from Van Horn Farms in Washington.

Beer Review by Beer Advocate

The body of this beer was very clear, and the color was a lovely shade of golden amber. The head was two finger thick, and very sturdy. The smell was quite a bit more subdued, considering the fresh Centennial hops, that were supposed to be showcased here. The taste changed the disappointment I felt in the smell rapidly. There was very juicy, citric hop bitterness exploding on the tongue from the beginning of each sip. The beer stayed citric mid palette, and finished with a peppery blast. The body felt just right for the style, and the malts were simple, and were in a supporting role. This was an enjoyable IPA for me.

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%.
