Brewing Company

Inspired by the history of beer in Georgia, Jekyll Brewing was founded in 2013 to celebrate the quality and camaraderie of the brewing industry in the South.

In 1738, the first  brewery in the Deep South was built on Jekyll Island by General James Oglethorpe, founder of the colony of Georgia, and Major William Horton, Oglethorpe’s second in command. Horton was the head brewer and also grew his own hops and grain for brewing.

The Horton brewery is now in ruins, but it remains a prominent historical site for the state. Georgia’s brewing industry has grown significantly since its colonial days and now more than 40 breweries and brewpubs exist here, with many more in planning. Jekyll Brewing is the first brewery in Alpharetta.
