Curiosity leads me to ask if any of our beer lovers on BE are familiar with Pale Ales that contain rye. The only one with which I am familiar is described below.
There is a brewery in Athens, Georgia called the Terrapin Beer Company. Their signature ale, called, appropriately enough, Terrapin Rye Pale Ale, contains rye as the name says.
This ale is quite highly hopped and the rye adds another touch of bite to it. This is a very good and refreshing beer and I try to always have it on hand. It is available on tap in some places in the Athens/Atlanta area, but they do not bottle the beer in Athens. They have it bottled under contract to a bottler in Fredrick MD.
Unfortunately, it is only distributed in an area within a few hundred miles of Athens, so won't be available to most of the BE audience. If you think you must absolutely have some email me and I will see what I can do.
It won the American Pale Ale Gold Medal at the 2002 Great American Beer Festival, so it has gotten some deserved recognition. As you have by now guessed, I like this beer a lot and was just wondering if there are other beers out there whose recipe includes rye.
