Creature Comforts


Housed in a former warehouse originally built in the 1940s, this cutting-edge brewery has quickly become an Athens mainstay after launching a line of inventive craft beers, including the signature Reclaimed Rye (an amber ale aged partially in rye whiskey barrels and French oak) and the seasonal standout Athena Paradiso (a fruit-infused Berliner Weisse with summery aromas of tart cherry, raspberry, and cranberry). It's definitely worth touring the facilities, but we won't fault you if you decide to head straight to the crisp, minimalist taproom, which boasts large communal pine tables and chalkboard-painted walls.
