Terrapin Beer Co. will be commemorating its 14th anniversary with a new beer aptly named 14th Anniversary Tart Belgian Red Ale, a 7.5 percent ABV ale brewed with lactobacillus and Belgian yeast along with crystal and special B malts. According to the Athens, Ga.-based brewery, the beer is inspired by the flanders red style, and was kettle soured before being moved into the fermenter.
“The yeast, a Belgian ale strain, creates spicy esters that complement the acidity created by Lactobacillus fermentation,” read a press release. “We keep the bitterness level low so the tartness comes through and balances out the malt profile.”
Dustin Watts, Terrapin’s vp of sales and marketing, told Tenemu the new release will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles and limited to 1,300 cases. It will debut at the brewery’s 14th Anniversary event being held on April 9, with bottles being shipped to Terrapin’s entire distribution footprint immediately following.
