Atlanta Braves stadium to sell beer made with baseball bat shavings

Posted on April 11, 2017 by


When Atlanta’s new SunTrust Park opens for regular-season play on April 14, Braves fans will have the opportunity to experience baseball like never before.

More specifically, they’ll be able to taste it.

With some help from the Terrapin Beer Company of Athens, Ga., SunTrust Park will be offering a brand-new “Chopsecutioner” beer which is aged atop wood from real Mizuno baseball bats.

“There’s some waste from bats from when they spin them down or carve them down, and that’s the product that we use to age the beer,” Terrapin brewmaster Brian “Spike” Buckowski told CBS.

Buckowski also explained that steeping wood in casks of beer isn’t a new process, and that it’s often done with other types of wood to impart flavor.
