Terrapin Reintroduces Dos Cocoas, Using Olive & Sinclair Chocolate Co’s Cocoa Nibs
(Athens, GA) – In 2012, Terrapin Beer Co. offered up to their fans the chance to vote for their favorite retired Terrapin beer. After heated campaigning, the votes were tallied and, unlike some previous elections, the winner was clear: Dos Cocoas Chocolate Porter!
Dos Cocoas, which was originally released in 2008 as Side Project Vol. 4, didn’t need to rely on kissing babies to win votes. To promote the regional economy, cocoa nibs and shells were shipped in from Nashville, TN chocolate maker Olive & Sinclair Chocolate Co. Then Terrapin’s brewers were put to work creating a complex porter that will gain approval points across party lines. Dos Cocoas’ perfect mix of sweet, velvety chocolate and mellow roastiness provides the checks and balances needed to provide a quick stimulus to taste buds throughout the Southeast and East Coast.
Malts: 2-Row Pale, Munich I, Munich II, Crystal 85, Chocolate, Black
Other: Cocoa Nibs, Cocoa Shells
Right or left, red or blue, this is one elected official that we all can agree on. Dos Cocoas will be packaged in 22 oz. bottles and available starting in mid-July within Terrapin’s ten-state distribution network.
Terrapin Beer Co. is open to the public for tours every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday night from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. with live music and tastings. The brewery is located at 265 Newton Bridge Road in Athens, GA.
