You walk in through a visitor/tour entrance where (due to ridiculously outdated GA distribution laws) you purchase a glass for your "brewery tour experience." In the state of GA, you aren't allowed to purchase any beer directly from a brewery, so you buy a glass, they offer a tour, and you get a number of tasting tickets to try the beers. At least the loophole is completely workable. Again, no beer to go due to laws, but you can find their beers just about anywhere. They sell growlers, but can't fill them. They also have a bunch of swag for sale in this area. After the tour, you exit into an outdoor biergarten of sorts, where there is a ton of picnic tables, outdoor games, and music playing. There were about 8 taps going, and the bartenders were providing healthy samples while I was there. Be forewarned: there was a cop camped out right around the corner while I was there, and I was informed this is the norm for Terrapin's visiting/operating hours. The staff in the gift shop, the bartenders, and the tour guide were all extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The beer was delicious, and the crowd had a really friendly vibe. This is a must stop in Athens, but plan accordingly, because they have limited hours open to the public.
