Terrapin Beer Co. (Athens, Georgia) announced today that Hammer 58 Pale Ale, a beer inspired by and brewed in collaboration with former Atlanta Falcon Jesse “The Hammer” Tuggle, will be released to coincide with the opening of the Atlanta Falcon’s new home at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
To properly commemorate the Atlanta Falcons inaugural season at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the Terrapin Beer Co. crew spent some time with Jesse “The Hammer” Tuggle, former NFL Linebacker who played his entire career (1987-2000) with the Atlanta Falcons, at their ATL BrewLab to brew a beer that celebrates both this legendary player and his team. What they came up with was Hammer 58, an easy-drinking (5.8% ABV), hop-forward (58 IBUs) American Pale Ale that is brewed with “Falconers Flight hop blend and eight malts [to] create a citrusy and floral flavor.”
Hammer 58 Pale Ale is a Special Release offering that will be available throughout football season. This draft-only offering will be available at Terrapin’s new bar at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, select Taco Mac locations, The Wing, Terrapin Beer Co.’s brewery in Athens, and for a limited time at the Terrapin Taproom at Suntrust Park. Prost!
