The Terrapin Taproom will be a restaurant operated by Delaware North, offering a rotating tap list of Terrapin craft brews. Fans of the Athens-based brewer can expect to enjoy classic Terrapin brews such as Hopsecutioner, HI-5, RecreationAle and Rye Pale Ale.

The Taproom will also feature Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, according to the announcement.

Adjacent to The Taproom will be the ATL Brew Lab, a microbrewery where Terrapin Beer will experiment with different styles of brewing and further collaboration efforts on brand-new beers, including some special baseball-themed brands. Guests will get some of the first sips of Terrapin beers that cannot be found anywhere else.

Both the Terrapin Taproom and the ATL Brew Lab will be located outside the right field gate entrance and stay open year-round.

“We might be biased, but for us there’s no better way to take in a Braves game than with an ice-cold local beer and we’re thrilled Terrapin gets to be that hometown brew,” Brian “Spike” Buckowski, Terrapin Beer Company co-founder and vice president of brewing development, said in the announcement.

“Our wheels are spinning for what we’ll exclusively brew at the ballpark and we cannot wait to get in there and start.”

The Terrapin Taproom and ATL Brew Lab are the result of a multiyear partnership between the Atlanta Braves and MillerCoors. Following the recent acquisition of Terrapin last month by Tenth and Blake, the craft and imports division of MillerCoors, Terrapin was immediately picked to become the flagship craft brewery for the ballpark because of its strong local ties to the state.

“We wanted to partner with Terrapin because they’ve been crafting beers right up the road in Athens and have developed a strong southern following, so we knew right away they would be a natural fit with the Braves,” Derek Schiller, Braves president, business, said in the announcement.

“The Terrapin Taproom will pair Terrapin’s freshest and newest beers with some down-home southern barbecue, which is sure to excite all of Braves Country.”

Construction will begin in November, and The Terrapin Taproom and ATL Brew Lab are set to open at the start of the 2017 Braves season.
