Founders John Cochran, a 1993 University of Georgia graduate, and Brian "Spike" Buckowski a 1996 American Brewers Guild (California) graduate - met in 1998 while working at Atlanta Brewing Company.[2] Both men had been homebrewing for years, and decided to partner with each other to start a brewing company in Athens, Georgia. Buckowski, a Grateful Dead fan, named the brewery after his favorite Grateful Dead album Terrapin Station. After creating a business plan, Buckowski and Cochran spent three unsuccessful years pitching investors to fund their startup costs for the Terrapin Brewing Company. In April 2002, they created and introduced Terrapin's Rye Pale Ale at the Classic City Brew Fest in Athens, Georgia - which garnered praise by beer aficionados across the U.S.[3] In October 2002, its Rye Pale Ale was awarded the American Pale Ale Gold Medal at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado - which helped garner Terrapin distribution opportunities across Atlanta. Terrapin began contract brewing with several breweries to produce their beer including; Frederick Brewing Company (now Flying Dog Brewery) in Frederick, Maryland, and Zuma Brewing Company in Atlanta, Georgia.[4]

In 2006, Terrapin obtained an $800,000 investment from a pool of Athens' investors, which allowed them to buy brewing equipment and lease a small facility in Athens, Georgia where they began producing their own beer. In 2008, the brewery moved to a larger 45,000 square-foot facility at 265 Newton Bridge Road,[5] Athens, Georgia, where it could produce up to 18,500 barrels per year.[6] Terrapin Brewing Company offers tastings and tours and averages 30,000 visitors per year.[2]

Whether you call it soda or pop, the fact remains: a bubbly cola is one of life's simple pleasures. In addition to regular colas and diet colas, Sam's Club stocks an excellent selection of canned beverages such as root beer, lemon-lime soda and other flavors. And if you run a convenience store or you're using a soda dispenser, you'll be glad to know that you can buy lots of different flavors of soda syrup at Sam's Club.

When you're making your list of food and drinks for the party, be sure to include beer from Sam's Club. When you buy beer from Sam's Club, you get the best beer prices. Plus, you can order everything you need for the party and then arrange to pick it all up your nearest Sam's Club location, so you'll save time and you won't have to wait in the checkout line.

One nice thing about purchasing beer in bottles and beer in cans is that you can offer a variety of different types of beer at your gathering. Pick up a 30-pack of domestic beer that's on the lighter side, and then grab a few 6-packs or 12-packs of darker ales or imports to mix things up. Set everything up in a cooler, and offer containers for recycling glass and aluminum cans.

Cochran confirmed that Altamont was the Asheville brewery listed for sale last year in an online posting that stirred up enormous local curiosity and interest. At Terrapin, Cochran handled the business side, building it into a major Southeastern brand while his partner "Spike" Buckowski did the brewing.

But he's already expanding the brewery, with new tanks that will double its capacity from 400 barrels annually to about 800. Altamont had been turning out around 300 to 350 barrels annually, he said. It's possible that UpCountry might eventually can its beers, "but that is a phase two thing," he said.

Cochran has deeps Georgia roots, having been born in Commerce outside Athens. He attended Georgia Tech in Atlanta, switched to the University of Georgia and lives today in the town of Jefferson. For a while, he lived in Seattle, "and that opened my eyes to what could be done in the beer industry," he said.

He had long had his eye on the booming Asheville beer scene, generally recognized as the hottest city for craft beer in the eastern United States. There are 24 breweries open in Buncombe County now, more than 60 in the mountains and eight more under construction in the Asheville area. The region has three national craft brands: New Belgium, Sierra Nevada and Oskar Blues.

"I definitely was following Asheville," he said. "For beer in the Southeast, you come to Asheville. I'm amazed at the number of people from Athens and elsewhere who are here. Coming from the outside, we want to be part of the community. We will do a lot of events and a lot of charitable works."

Next to the taproom will be the ATL Brew Lab, which will have a five-barrel system that will allow Terrapin brewers to flex their creative muscles by creating small batches of beer that will only be available at the ballpark, including "baseball-themed brews" where appropriate.

"What really gets my juices flowing from a creative standpoint is brewing for the brewlab," he said. "Where we're going to shine is doing one-off beers, like if it's like a player's birthday or you know how baseball stadiums have different nights and themes and things like that, we'll be able to act quickly to create a lot of different recipes at the brewlab that we might not have tried."

The deal is part of a multiyear partnership between the Atlanta Braves and MillerCoors, whose Tenth and Blake craft division purchased a full ownership in Terrapin in July after owning a minority stake since 2012. Terrapin produced 57,000 barrels of beer last year, up nearly 25 percent from 2014.

The Hopsecutioner was a little misleading in that the aroma would have suggested a very hoppy and most likely bitter beer. Surprisingly, the actual taste was well balanced and the flavors were quite muted. If you are looking for a hoppier beer that could be a session beer, the Hopsecutioner is certainly worth a try.
