Athens’ Terrapin Beer coming to Braves’ SunTrust Park


The Atlanta Braves said Tuesday they will bring the flavor of Athens to SunTrust Park, announcing a partnership with the Classic City’s noted Terrapin Beer Company for a taproom and microbrewery.

The Terrapin Taproom will be operated by restaurant company Delaware North and feature Atlanta’s Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, and next door will be a Terrapin microbrewery called the ATL Brew Lab. The partnership with Fox Bros. and plans for a brewpub had been previously announced as the Tomahawk Taproom.

Terrapin, one of Georgia’s best-known craft brewers, recently sold a majority stake to the craft beer division of brewing behemoth MillerCoors. MillerCoors was previously named the Braves official beer sponsor.

Both the taproom and microbrewery will be open year-round, the partners said in a news release, and brewmasters will experiment with new styles and “baseball-themed brands.” It will open in time for the first game next spring, the release said.

“We wanted to partner with Terrapin because they’ve been crafting beers right up the road in Athens and have developed a strong southern following, so we knew right away they would be a natural fit with the Braves,” Braves President of Business Derek Schiller said in the release. “The Terrapin Taproom will pair Terrapin’s freshest and newest beers with some down-home southern barbecue, which is sure to excite all of Braves Country.”

From top to bottom, the metro Atlanta economy has been growing solidly and much of the action is at the poles: high skills and low. The region has added 95,400 jobs in the past year, and the unemployment rate has dropped to 4.9 percent – the level of joblessness of the last month in 2007 before the recession. Demand is good for lower-wage workers...

Kempner: Why Fox’s O’Reilly pain probably isn’t CNN’s gain

Another heap of bad drama for Fox News is good for a former CNN talker, but maybe not so much for CNN. Fox News dumped Bill O’Reilly after publicity about another wave of sexual harassment complaints, legal settlements and hush money. I suspect it wasn’t an easy decision for a network that has struggled through self-inflicted controversy...

Home sellers can rejoice: Atlanta’s spring buying season started in March with a 10 percent jump from last year in the price of homes sold.  The median price of a home sold last month was $220,000 – a 10.6 percent increase from the same month a year ago with the number of sales increasingly modestly, according to a report issued Friday...
