Beer Field Trips

May 6, 2010

One of the missions of the ALES is to take beer themed field trips. While these field trips can be anything, our first ones should be centered on learning about beer. With that in mind I offer a series of post about possible field trips in a three hour radius of Hampton. The first of these is the Terrapin Brewing Company in Athens, Ga. You can visit their website here. In case you are too lazy to click on that link, or if you are like Ziggy and only scored a 62% on your tech quiz I will sum up some of the finer points of this proposed trip.

  • Terrapin is open to the public for tours and tastings every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 5:30 – 7:30.
  • Educational tours run at 6:00, 6:30 and 7:00.
  • Live Music!
  • Souvenir glasses for tasting are $10 each. A portion of each glass sale goes to support local charities!
  • Over 10 unique brews on tap every day, year round!
  • It is about a three hour ride from Hampton.

So there you have it, an award winning brewery in our region that offers tours and tastings. Mull it over, or in the comments section post your suggestions and we will highlight them here as well.
