Rec cans

Athens, GA- May 24, 2013

Terrapin Beer Co. is bringing a new shape to shelves with the release of RecreationAle, the company’s first offering to be packaged in 12 oz. cans. This is the second addition to their year-round line-up in 2013, bringing the total number of beers available regardless the season up to 5.

RecreationAle, a hopped-up session ale, is Terrapin’s nod to all things recreational. With RecreationAle in cans, trailblazers everywhere will be able to easily take along great craft beer without fear of breakage. Added benefits are a lightweight, compact container (bag space is limited!) and the practicing of good karma- cans are convenient to recycle. This hoppy, refreshing, and sessionable beer will be a perfect companion to any outdoor activity.

Terrapin is also partnering with Osprey Packs, Inc. to encourage craft beer lovers to get recreational. An online raffle offering consumers the chance to win an Osprey backpack will be opening in early June coinciding with the beer’s release. Each month, four lucky winners will take home an awesome Talon 22 pack built to take whatever adventure may bring… with room to spare for some RecreationAle packed in as well!  Go to or to the company Facebook page to enter.

The RecreationAle release party will be  June 8 at the US National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC! Terrapin will take over the outdoor market with 6 Terrapin taps and RecreationAle in cans available all day long. Raffles, giveaways, tons of cool activities, and live music that evening… come hang out with the Terrapin crew and welcome RecreationAle with style.
