Terrapin Brewing Co

Terrapin Beer Co. was born when two brewers met while working together at a microbrewery in Atlanta. Spike and John felt they could make a contribution to the burgeoning Southeastern craft beer scene. Realizing that anyone could make another basic pale ale, brown ale, or stout, Spike and John set their sights on creating beers unlike any that were currently available in the Southeast.

Unique beers needed a unique location and what better place than Athens, GA? Home to the University of Georgia, Athens has a rich culture of music, food, classic Southern charm, and more than a little eclectic attitude. Spike and John knew from the start that the Classic City would be Terrapin’s home.

The guys introduced Terrapin’s first beer, Terrapin Rye, in April of 2002. While still available only on draft and only in downtown Athens, this sole offering won the American Pale Ale Gold Medal at the 2002 Great American Beer Festival. At only six months old, Terrapin had arrived in style!

History rolls forward and so too has Terrapin. These days John and Spike are enjoying Terrapin’s 40,000 square foot brewing facility, 100 BBL brewing system, and are taking full advantage of the space to continue bringing innovative and exciting brews to craft beer lovers. The brewery now has a portfolio of 5 year-round beers, 4 Seasonal Sessions beers, the Monster Beer Tour collection of high-gravity selections, and the Side Project series of one-time brewing improvisations, as well as several Special Releases and collaborations annually. Terrapin has developed a reputation for high-quality beers that push the boundaries of creative brewing and has garnered several awards both in the U.S.A and internationally.

Founded in 2007, McKemie Place is the only overnight shelter for single, homeless women in Mobile, Washington and Baldwin counties in Alabama. Our first guests were given shelter in March of that year as a service under the United Methodist Inner City Mission, thanks to the efforts of the late Jamie Praytor.

McKemie Place is a safe haven for homeless unaccompanied women. We have a 69-bed capacity to provide a place for women to stay overnight. In fact, our beds have been filled over 15,000 times since the very first night we opened our doors. Through the gracious assistance of volunteers, who bring a warm, prepared meal, we also serve dinner to our guests each evening.

While some of our ladies are struggling, some have jobs and go to work each day. But all find comfort, friendship and spiritual support as they seek to rebound from the challenges life has thrown their way.

McKemie Place operates under the guidance of a Board of Directors, with Jessica James serving as Executive Director. We rely heavily upon community support to operate the shelter. Your donations are needed now more than ever! Please consider making a donation of your time, goods or financial resources.

The Staff and Women of McKemie thank you for your support of a much-needed non-profit agency in our Region.
