Beer season is every season here in Georgia, but we would say summer is the best time to kick back and cool down with a few brews. The brewing industry is constantly growing here and we have over 50 craft breweries in the state. The best part is some of these breweries sell beer exclusive to Georgia (because we're special). Sip on some of these unique beers only found in Georgia.
The Great Trilithon - The Lost Druid Brewery
Address: 2866 Washington St, Avondale Estates, GA 30002
Why you need to go: Lost Druid has over 20 beers that change pretty frequently, so there is always something new at the bar. One of their most unique is their newly-released hybrid Munich Dunkel, The Great Trilithon. All beers are only sold at the actual brewery.
Reclaimed Rye - Creature Comforts
Address: 271 W Hancock Ave, Athens, GA 30601
Why you need to go: Creature Comforts is an Athens staple with extraordinary beers, a rustic vibe and plenty of outdoor seating. All of their beers are sold exclusively in Georgia, and Reclaimed Rye is a fan favorite.
IQ IPA - Akademia Brewing Company
Address: 150 Crane Dr, Athens, GA 30606
Why you need to go: Akademia Brewing Company, a fairly new brewery Athens, is definitely seasoned when it comes to brewing. All of their beers are only sold in Georgia, but the IQ IPA is most popular.
Big Shanty - Burnt Hickory Brewing
Address: 2260 Moon Station Ct NW # 210, Kennesaw, GA 30144
Why you need to go: This Kennesaw brewery has super unique brews that you have to try this summer. Their Big Shanty is a Georgia original and is brewed with real graham crackers, honey and cinnamon. Speaking of sweet, try this King of Pops collab with another brewery in Atlanta.
Grisette - Sabbath Brewing
Address: 530 Flat Shoals Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30316
Why you need to go: This badass brewery does not distribute their beers at all, so you can only get them here. Their Grisette, a saison-like beer, is a top hit.
