Terrapin Beer Co. (Athens, Georgia) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Sunray, a “Solar Brewed” Wheat Beer, in June 2020.
Originally produced by Terrapin Beer Co. in 2008 and revived to draw attention to the 2019 installation of “720 solar panels on the roof of [the] brewery in order to offset [its] energy consumption as part of [the brewery’s] Terraprint initiative,” Sunray is German-style Hefeweizen that is brewed with the power of the sun and features a malt bill that “includes Georgia grown wheat malted by Riverbend Malt House in Asheville, NC.” Coming in at an easy drinking 5.2% ABV, Sunray brings together “Georgia sun, Georgia malt, Georgia beer. What more could you want this summer?”
Sunray Wheat Beer is scheduled to release during the week of June 1 and will hang around for a limited time. You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans at craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and throughout the rest of Terrapin’s distribution area. Prost!
