MLB: Braves' SunTrust Park will have custom beer brewed with baseball bats

Terrapin Brewing Company will create a special beer inside SunTrust Park that is aged over wood chips left over from Mizuno bats.

The Braves are pulling out all the stops for when they play their first game in SunTrust Park on Friday, including serving a beer specially brewed with baseball bats.

Terrapin Brewing Company, based out of Athens, Ga., has brewed a beer with leftover wood chips fromMizuno baseball bats.

Dubbed the Chopsecutioner, the beerwill only be served in Terrapin Brew Lab, which is inside SunTrust Park.

For clarification, the wood chipsare from discarded wood from the bat-making process, meaning there will be no sticky pine tar in your beer.

“We brew the Chopsecutioner and after the fermentation we transfer the beer onto the wood chips and then cool the beer down and age it,"brewmaster Brian Buckowski said.

"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. The wood chips from them making the bats and that’s what we use.”

Other specialty beers from the Brew Lab includeOn Deck IPA and Swing Batter Brown Ale.
