35th Parallel Ale: Terrapin, Saw Works brew up college football rivalry-themed beer

35th Parallel Ale labelPress Release:

(Knoxville, TN) – Terrapin Beer Company of Athens, GA is teaming up with Knoxville’s Saw Works Brewing Company on August 21, 2013 for a special brew day. The two brewmasters, Brian “Spike” Buckowski (Terrapin) and Dave Ohmer (Saw Works), have been collaborating on a limited-release oering to commemorate the football rivalry between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Tennessee Volunteers.

While the breweries plan on celebrating with fans in Knoxville on brew day, bars and restaurants in East Tennessee are already being selected as locations where the beer will be available starting October 1, 2013—four days prior to kickoff.


“I know a lot of East Tennesseans will be excited to experience this collaboration. It’s an honor to be co-brewing with the team at Terrapin, and we are looking forward to a great football weekend come October.”
—Adam Palmer, Saw Works President & Co-Founder

The breweries have nicknamed the beer 35th Parallel Ale, poking fun at the current (and nationally publicized) “water war” between Tennessee and Georgia due to the disputed state line on the 35th parallel.

“We‘re just glad to be brewing in Tennessee … we know they have plenty of water to spare!” —Spike Buckowski, Terrapin Brewmaster & Co-Founder
