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.
