Note from Spike:

This Belgian IPA has a malt bill of a Belgian Tripel and a hop bill of a double IPA. The yeast I chose for this beer comes from one of the 7 trappist breweries. Believe it or not, this is the first time in my professional brewing career that I have used dextrose(corn Sugar) in a Terrapin brew. True to stye, no doubt. "Monk's Revernge" otherwise known as the "Big Nasty" has all the flavor and aroma of a Double IPA. While hidden beneath lies the malt charactor of a fine Belgian Tripel.

I hope you enjoy my interpretation of the very fun style.



History of Terrapin Beer Company
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 the two are enjoying Terrapins new 40,000 square foot brewing facilites 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 India Style Brown. Terrapin has also released many other beers and garnered several awards both in the U.S and internationally.
