We have more additions to the food and beverage offerings at SunTrust Park, opening in 2017 as the new home of the Atlanta Braves: The Terrapin Taproom and an adjacent microbrewery, the ATL Brew Lab.
The Terrapin Taproom will be a restaurant operated by Delaware North, offering a rotating tap list that includes many of signature beers from Athens-based Terrapin Beer Co. including Hopsecutioner, HI-5, RecreationAle and Rye Pale Ale. The Taproom will also feature the Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q. Named the best barbecue in Atlanta by a host of publications, Fox Bros. will bring its special blend of Texas heat and southern spice to The Terrapin Taproom.
Adjacent to The Taproom will be the ATL Brew Lab, a microbrewery where Terrapin 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,” said Brian “Spike” Buckowski, Terrapin Beer Company co-founder and vice president of brewing development. “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 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,” said Derek Schiller, Braves president, business. “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.”
