Jekyll 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,

Southern Brewing Company

Southern Brewing is a new Georgia brewery in Athens that specializes in barrel aging, sours, and brewing with locally grown yeast.

A brewery couldn’t ask for a better source of inspiration than the city of Athens, with its thriving food and music scenes, vibrant college culture, and small town feel with plenty of Southern charm. The Southern Brewing Company embodies the unique combination of attributes that makes Athens so special. SBC is proud of its Athens heritage, spanning generations of people building a legacy of hospitality. The SBC team has worked hard to bring that culture into the beer they make and the atmosphere they cultivate,

Monday Night Brewing Company

Monday Night Brewing brews beers for the weeknights – balanced, flavorful ales that pair well with food. Weekends are overrated!

Believe it or not, the idea for Monday Night Brewing grew out of a small Atlanta bible study. Three of the bible study members started brewing beer together on Monday nights as a way to get to know each other better. As they became more engrained in the industry and more people started showing up to brew with them, beer quickly became more than just a weeknight hobby.

The trio spent almost 5 years perfecting their beers before bringing them to market in 2012.

Wild Leap Brew Co.

Something is brewing in historic downtown LaGrange. What was once the Westbrook Service & Tire Co. building has become the home of Wild Leap Brew Co., the first brewery to locate in LaGrange.

Wild Leap features a tasting room, large event space and an outdoor beer garden that looks upon a downtown plaza. Its portfolio of delicious brews debuted in Athens and Northeast Georgia in August 2018.

The name Wild Leap speaks to the conviction of the two founders, who left successful career paths to follow their passion of creating a better-tasting craft beer. It’s also a nod to celebrating that important first step that sets a dream in motion.

Red Hare Brewing Company

Red Hare Brewing is an independent craft brewery located in the heart of Marietta, Georgia.

White collar businessmen Bobby Thomas and Roger Davis started out as home brewers and decided to leave the corporate world for their delicious hobby. On Labor Day weekend in 2011, they began selling Red Hare beer throughout Georgia. In 2012, the brewery became the first in the state to can their beer using Evercan recycled aluminum. Red Hare has won numerous awards for their beers, and is currently distributed in five states across the South.
