A Big Weekend to Support Local Georgia Beer!

Mar 07, 2024

It’s a big weekend for local beer! Georgia Beer Day, the annual celebration of Georgia craft beer, is this Saturday. If you’re a fan of local beer, chances are you’ve got plans to buy a commemorative glass and check out a taproom or two this weekend. 

We’re spoiled with phenomenal intown breweries here in Atlanta, but there’s so much more fantastic Georgia beer out there beyond perimeter. Georgia’s a big state though, and there’s a lot of territory to cover from Blue Ridge to the Coastal Empire—and, let’s be honest, I-16 is one of the most boring stretches of highway ever. We thought we’d save you the trip this week and explore Georgia breweries from all corners of our state. Read on and take a tour of all the Peach State has to offer!

Two Tides 50 Meals for Healthier Living $23.99/4pk

Two Tides opened in Savannah’s vibrant Starland District in March of 2018. They’ve since become among the most relevant, top-notch breweries in Georgia and are well known for fantastic IPAs and smoothie sours. We got a colossal drop of Two Tides this week, including the phenomenally fresh 50 Meals for Healthier Living. Hopped with Nectaron, Pacific Sunrise & Citra-Cryo, this juice bomb is packed with notes of pineapple, passionfruit, stone fruit, melon, and mouth-watering mango.

Good Word Coastline Pils $22.99/4pk

Good Word opened in Duluth in 2017 committed to an ethos of authenticity, service, and community. It’s technically located in the metro, but if you’re the ITP-or-bust type and never venture beyond 285, Duluth might as well be the dark side of the moon. We love everything Good Word makes, but we’re especially big fans of their lager game. Dry-hopped with Saphir, Coastline Pils is a lovely, expressive pilsner. Pleasant, herbal Noble hop notes contrast citrusy New World hop flavors, striking a satisfying and fascinating counterpoint. 

Line Creek Nietzsche’s Nihilistic Tendencies $15.99/500mL 

Peachtree City’s first brewery opened in 2018 and has become a staple of the southern suburbs, with 2 additional locations in Fayetteville and Newnan. We’re big fans of Line Creek, and we love that they’re just a hop and a skip from our Hop City/Barleygarden Fayetteville location. Their double barrel-aged Nietzsche’s Nihilistic Tendencies is a beautiful, complex beer. Aged on cognac and Doc Brown bourbon barrels, this barleywine is laden with classic bourbon and oak flavors, along with nuanced fruit notes from the cognac barrels. Chef’s kiss!

Printer’s Ale PMS 7413 Orange Creamsicle $12.99/4pk

Printer’s opened in 2017 in Carrollton in a truly gorgeous, sprawling space, building on a centuries-long family tradition of tinkering and making things. We love their core offerings and their take on traditional styles, but we can’t get enough of their fruited sour series. With a 4.12 Untappd score, their orange creamsicle version is delightfully refreshing and ideal for sipping on an early spring day.   

Creature Comforts Spring $11.99

It’s hard to take a tour of Georgia breweries outside of Atlanta without landing in the Classic City. Everyone knows Creature and the host of fantastic beer they brew, but you may not know about Spring, a new Belgian-style white ale that just came out and has quickly become one of our favorite springtime sippers. Expect fresh, floral, citrusy notes from this quaffable seasonal release.

Spring Forward with us! Try out Creature Comforts Spring this Saturday March, 9th at Krog Street Market from 1-3pm! It's free and delicious!
