Terrapin Debuts First Canned Beer

RecreationALE, a “hopped up session ale” that clocks in at a quaffable 4.7%, is local beer giant Terrapin‘s first-ever canned concoction, which means the company is joining Oskar Blues, 21st Amendment and all those other craft breweries in the “Canned Beer Revolution.” (Yes, that’s a thing.)

The new brew is officially set to drop tomorrow, Saturday, June 8 at a release party taking place at the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC. (Sporty!) This is the second new year-round beer Terrapin has unveiled in 2013; the Treehugger Altbier was debuted back in March.

There’s the design to your right. If you can’t make it to Charlotte or are, I dunno, afraid of rapids, don’t worry—Terrapin says that the brew will hit Athens shelves by the end of next week.
