Pumpkin Fest
Rated 92 Points on Ratebeer.com, this seasonal brew differs from the rest in the pumpkin category because it a lager and not an ale! Terrapin combined all the malty goodness of a German Oktoberfest lager with the spicy softness of a traditional pumpkin ale to create…..PUMPKIN FEST! Perfectly balanced with a strong malt backbone and notes of fresh pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and cloves, this seasonal offering will have you begging for another sip! 6.1% abv
Available now in 6-packs, 1/2 and 1/6 kegs

Q: I’m too hot to drink pumpkin beer, what do I do?
A: Drop a scoop of vanilla ice cream in there and make yourself an ice cream float!
Q: That’s boring. What else can I do?
A: Make some pumpkin ice cream using the pumpkin beer and sandwich some in-between two chocolate chip cookies for a scrumptious summer treat!
Q: I don’t like cookies, now what do I do?
A: That’s sad. We suggest adopting a new diet or maybe just buying some to save for later when the temperature outside gets cooler!

Dos Cocoas
Originally brewed as Side Project #4 and back by popular demand! This seductive chocolate porter is made using cocoa shells and nibs from Olive and Sinclair Chocolate Company in Terrapin’s hometown of Athens. The Alstrom Brothers on Beer Advocate gave this one 90 points and an ‘Outstanding’ rating. One swig of this delicious chocolatey concoction and you’ll understand why!
5.8% abv Available now in 22oz bottles and 1/6 kegs

Food pairings: See notes above about ice cream floats and making ice cream out of beer. Pumpkin Fest ice cream sandwiched between two Dos Cocoas Cookies would be ridiculous! (Unless of course, you don’t like ice cream or cookies )
