Two Georgia Tech engineers (one a former SweetWater brewer) are putting their scientific minds to making some seriously sweet beer, like a spicy Thai Wheat made w/ lemongrass & ginger that sadly, you can only score at their brewery and taproom on Fridays and Saturdays for the time being.
Three Taverns is all about making American-style Belgian beers and bringing every around the table to enjoy quality and flavorful suds. They host events in their tasting room, or you can buy some Three Taverns merch to show your support.
The oldest local brewery in the state has a great patio and parking lot to stretch out in when the tour gets a little too crowded. Their Laughing Skull amber ale is available in bottles at most stores, but it tastes so much better straight from the keg that was filled a few feet away.
Atlanta’s first BeltLine brewery is the perfect place for a beer tasting or relaxing evening, so grab a glass of Atalanta plum saison, sit back, and enjoy.
Founded by a group of friends who met in Bible study, Monday Night Brewing's a brewing facility on the Westside complete with a tasting room.
Stop in on the weekend and take a 30min tour at Red Hare Brewing Company, then taste away on their slightly sweet 7% ABV Gangway IPA or Long Day Lager, a Bohemian-style Pilsner.
An Alpharetta micro-brewery with craft beers like Big Creek Kolsch and Hop Dang Diggity with a 6.7% ABV.
Decatur's first full-scale production brewery's got four main brews to try including their heavy-hitting Mother Hoppin' DIPA with a 10.1% ABV.
The Southside is largely underrepresented in all things food and drink, but these jailbirds are doing something about it. Show up for a conjugal visit and be treated to the Slammer Wheat and Misdemeanor Ale. Just don’t let the warden catch you smuggling any contraband out of the facilities.
With “Drink Here” and “To-Go” tours at Decatur’s Wild Heaven Craft Beers, you can stay for as long (or as short) as you’d like at this craft brewery. The entire brewery is sheltered under one impressively constructed wooden roof, whose exposed beams are popsicle-stick narrow. About a quarter of the industrial, bare-bones space is devoted to the tasting room, where you can sample Wild Heaven’s all-grain beers (they leave the adjunct sugars at the door), making for bigger flavors without excess alcohol. However, many of Wild Heaven’s beers are indeed elevated in the alcohol department, so when the barbecue vendor occasionally stops by the brewery, chances are you won’t be able to pass on snacks.
This bustling 115,000 square-foot brewhouse in an otherwise stale Industrial Park features an art deco-esque tasting room, a fermentation tank, and bottling space, all of which you can be introduced to on a walking tour of the building. Their signature pale ale, 420, is a ubiquitous drink in the city, and also the name of a music festival Sweewater hosts every year around Earth Day.
