“Must Visit”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

I have visited many times. Very laid back, relaxed atmosphere. Good selection of craft beers- they usually have their usual line up of best sellers to sample and rotate one or two seasonal brews (all of which are great). Live music on the weekends. Lawn games. Lots of seating and tables. Can bring leashed dogs. I have not personally taken the brewery tour, but I've heard it's interesting. 10$ gets you a pint glass to take home and eight sample pours (a little over 4 beers). Tip your bar backs and you get better service- aka bigger pours.

Tip: Make sure to watch your clock if you show up late so you don't leave with unused tickets. Last call is at 7:30.

“Awesome Beer Tour”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

I went here yesterday with some family members and truly enjoyed it! Terrapin allows you to bring anybody including kids or dogs, but you must be over 21 to drink. They give you a bracelet with about 8 quarter pints and you have a big selection of beers to choose from. The tour which is done every 20 to 30 minutes is a very informative and funny! They also have live music and outside seating. You can bring outside food too! Definitely recommend this place to anybody, its located off chase street, so its a great place to hang out or pre game before heading to downtown Athens.

“I wish I was local!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely amazing deal. Get there early as there was a line at 5:30. We went on the Saturday of St.Patty's day weekend and it was packed. Military discount on pint glasses but admission tasting and tour are free. I did see people walking around with plastic cups to make it 100% free. Kids and dogs were welcome and there was plenty for them to do. Tours are in small groups and you must have closed toed shoes. You get a bracelet with 8 four once tastings and they had eight beers to try including different special beers. If you know what you want you can get a full pint instead of four of your tastings. Large area outside to drink with live music. People brought their own chairs as the picnic tables filled up fast. Or bring a blanket and food for an awesome picnic. Last tasting glasses available at 7pm with last pour at 7:15 and closed at 7:30. I would go every week more than once if I was local. A must for any beer lover or even liker. My wife, new to beer, found a few she liked.

“Great Beer, Live music”
Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

This Athens brewery produces some of the best high gravity beers in the South. Over the weekends, they have live music and tastings. It was a great time
