Monday Night Hipster Fresh Hop Harvest Ale

Terrapin RecreationAle

This crisp, hoppy, sessionable pale ale — Terrapin's first beer in a can — is perfect for a fall camping trip or evening in the park. 4.7 percent ABV, 12-ounce cans, 12-pack, $13.99-$16.99.

Jekyll Brewing Hop Dang Diggity Southern IPA

Until Jekyll starts bottling, this delicious new beer is draft-only in local bars and the Alpharetta brewery's taproom. In the meantime, fill your growler with this citrus-packed India Pale Ale at retail stores such as Ale Yeah! Decatur and DRAFT Filling Station in North Druid Hills. 6.7 percent ABV, 64-ounce growler, $11.99-$13.99.
