Terrapin to release second The Walking Dead-themed brew

lucille-label-1-226725A few years ago, Athens, Ga. brewery Terrapin Beer Company produced a beer themed after the hugely popular “The Walking Dead” television program that airs on cable channel AMC. Walking Dead Blood Orange IPA was hit with both fans of the show and beer-lovers alike. On the heels of that success, Terrapin is once again brewing a The Walking Dead-themed beer. This time around the beer will pay tribute to the most reviled villain the show has ever known; Nagen.

As fans of the show know, Nagen is a psychopathic dictator who demands total loyalty and doles out punishment with his beloved “Lucille,” a barb-wire wrapped baseball bat. The brewers at Terrapin found inspiration in the much-feared weapon and have created an extremely limited amount of Lucille an imperial stout brewed with several unique ingredients.

The label describes the beer as:

“Lucille,” the weapon of choice inside of this bottle, is an imperial stout brewed with blackstrap molasses and vanilla. Swinging for the fences, we aged this beer on hickory, maple and white ash, the three woods that are used to produce baseball bats. Big and menacing, its flavors hit hard.

The beer will arrive in 500 ml bottles and, as stated above, will be extremely limited in distribution.

Terrapin brewing a beer based on The Walking Dead television program

walkingdeadThe news came out last week; fans of Terrapin Beer Company and of the AMC television program The Walking Dead have something to collectively cheer about. The two have teamed up to create a companion beer to the program. The Walking Dead Red India Pale Ale will be brewed appropriately enough with blood orange peel.

Astute fans of both the show and the beer may recall that several years ago, cases of Terrapin beer made a cameo on the program. In a horrifying scene, zombies – or Walkers as they are known on the show – fell through holes in the roof of a storage room on to cases of the beer. Oh the humanity!

Perhaps prophetically, during an interview with Spike Buckowski and John Cochran in 2013, I broached the subject of brewing a beer for The Walking Dead (https://sprbrewcrew.wordpress.com/2013/09/13/tenacity-secret-to-terrapin-beer-company-success/). As fans know, the show took place in and around Atlanta, Ga. during the first few seasons. Indeed, it is still filmed outside of the Atlanta area. Spike, a fan of the show, expressed that he would welcome the opportunity to brew a beer themed to the show.

Release dates and availability details are not yet available, but once it hits the shelves it is sure to be a popular addition to Sunday night zombie watching.
