Atlanta’s new home of the Braves, SunTrust Park opened over the weekend and they gave fans the chance to taste baseball like never before. Yes...I said TASTE baseball!
Thanks to the Terrapin Beer Company from nearby Athens, Georgia, a brand new beer called “Chopsecutioner” will be on tap. And it’s aged on wood from real Mizuno baseball bats.
“There’s some waste from bats from when they spin them down or carve them down,” explains Terrapin brewmaster Brian “Spike” Buckowski.” “And that’s the product that we use to age the beer.”
Chopsecutioner is only 5% alcohol by volume, so it’s ideal for sipping in the sun at a game. And it’ll be on draft for the entire Braves’ 2017 season, but there are no plans for “expansion” – you’ll have to head to SunTrust Park to taste it yourself.
