Georgia Aquarium and Atlanta Brewing Company are excited to reveal the latest addition to their craft beer collaboration…. Alligator IPA! This snapping new beer is specially brewed with pineapple to give it a tropical, well-balanced flavor.

Atlanta Brewing Company will host an official launch party on Friday, Feb. 7th. Alligator IPA will be available on draft with live music from The Unusual Animals.

A portion of the proceeds from Alligator IPA sales will go towards Georgia Aquarium's vital research and conservation efforts across the globe. By purchasing this new, limited-edition beer, you’re helping whale shark research, coral restoration efforts, African penguin rehabilitation and release in South Africa, and so much more.  Alligator IPA will be available at select Kroger, and other retail, locations throughout Atlanta beginning the week of February 10th. Wrangle one while you can!

The American alligator is considered a keystone species in some areas due to their vital role in managing the function of the ecosystem. Their comeback from endangerment and rapidly declining numbers, to now nearly 200,000 American alligators in Georgia alone, makes for one of the most notable conservation stories in history.
