Terrapin Beer Co., Athens, GA
Available on draft and in 6-pack 12-ounce cans
Terrapin’s Pastime was brewed in honor of the Atlanta Braves. But this modern pale ale is bound to appeal to beer drinkers beyond the ballpark. It’s made with a wide-ranging malt bill that includes two-row, Vienna, Red X, flaked oats, and wheat. Hop additions feature Galaxy and cryo versions of Simcoe and Mosaic. The result is a slightly hazy beer, with a soft sweetness on the palate, floral, pine, and passionfruit notes, and very little astringency.
At 5.4% alcohol by volume, Pastime Pale is an easy-drinking ale that will pair with a variety dishes. But at the Terrapin Taproom at Truist Park, you would do well enjoy it with Fox Bros. BBQ Frito Pie, fried pickles and fried jalapeños, smoked wings, or a pulled pork plate.
