The Atlanta Braves not only have a new stadium, the team has a new beer to help quench the thirst of fans.
And it’s the brewing process that some will say make it a great pair with America’s Pastime.
Terrapin Beer Company from Athens, Georgia, is using the wood used to make Mizuno baseball bats to age the beer.
It’s called Chopsecutioner, honoring the Braves’ tomahawk chop.
CBS Sports described the beer as “a lighter IPA with a great flavor.”
It contains a whopping 7.3 percent alcohol level.
So how do the bats tie into the brewing process?
After the beer is fermented, they pour the beer on wood chips left over from making the bats. It cools the brew and ages it.
