Sweetwater Brewery

February 17, 1997 marked the official beginning of SweetWater Brewery, and a new style of brewing and selling beer in Atlanta as the boys wandered around Atlanta in an old van with Freddy’s dog Badger. After ending up on the wrong side of the tracks a few times, they were finally pointed in the direction of Virginia-Highlands and found a few bars willing to take a chance on them. “We’ll give you a shot as long as your dog stops begging for leftovers on our patio” was the cautious approval they needed to get the brand rolling.SweetWater’s second and current location is in Midtown Atlanta, adjacent to Ansley Park, in the Armour Circle Industrial Park just off of Piedmont and Monroe. The boys saved all of their pennies to buy the 25,000 square feet of brewing goodness and smack in the middle of all the action. Since the company began we’ve wanted to be closer to our homes, the bars and stores that sell our beer, and all the good folks that drink it. Fortunately seven years of great growth gave the company that opportunity. We learned a lot from that location and left all those mistakes behind as we built our new home. SweetWater Brewing Company has been here since 2004 and it feels good to be settled in. Our new home has enough capacity to brew 100,000 barrels of beer a year (A few more years at this rate.)

Red Brick Brewing Company

Red Brick Brewing, founded on September 29, 1993, was originally known as the Atlanta Brewing Company. Red Brick is the oldest, operating craft brewery in the state of Georgia, and we have a proud history of brewing award winning beers over the years. Our first location was a quaint "Red Brick" building on 1219 Williams Street, in the heart of midtown Atlanta. In 2007, the growing demand for Red Brick beers required us to move to our current Atlanta location on Defoor Hills Road. Since then we have expanded our distribution to 8 states across the southeast. Red Brick opens its brewery doors for public tastings each Wednesday, Thursday, Friday (5pm-8pm), and Saturday (2pm-5pm). Drop on in and join us for a beer.

5 Seasons Brewing

Why, we wondered, was it still so difficult to find world-class beers in Atlanta?   Why was it even tougher to find premium beer and food served side-by-side? In 2001, 5 Seasons Brewing Company opened its doors at The Prado and quickly became a gathering place to connect with each other, our food, and the Earth. David, as executive chef, passionately applied a Napa-like culinary touch... Now located in the Brickworks on Marrietta St,  5 Seasons Westside is the perfect place for good food and beer!

Jailhouse Brewing Company

In August of 2008, an aspiring young brewer with big dreams and neophyte confidence plunged head first into an adventure wrought with stories of mountainous challenges, perilous doubt and the occasional ghost story (more on that in a minute) determined to brew the beer he loved and wanted to share with fellow beer-loving brothers and sisters. If it weren't for the challenges posed, one might speculate whether JailHouse Brewing Company would have ever made it from paper and pen dreams to concrete and stainless steel reality. You see, it's not the fear of failure or loss that drives us, it's the fear of not trying...

Monday Night Brewing

Monday Night Brewing is an Atlanta-based craft beer company. We currently offer two delicious styles of beer on draft in select Atlanta establishments.Believe it or not, the idea for Monday Night Brewing grew out of a small Atlanta Bible study. We started brewing beer together on Monday nights as a way to get to know each other better. As we got more engrained in the industry and more people started showing up to brew with us, beer quickly became more than just a weeknight hobby. We spent almost 5 years perfecting our Eye Patch Ale and Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale before bringing them to market. Years of minor tweaks, arguments over hop profiles, and experiments with different brands of base malts are poured into every glass that we brew.

Strawn Brewing Company

Strawn Brewing Company was a dream of Will and Lamar Strawn and Doug Evans, born from their love of homebrewing. In 2011 these “Working Men” met and decided to make this dream come true.

Being a new father, Lamar decided that his place was with his new growing family and made the tough decision step down and turn over the reins to Will and Doug. The two co-brewers can be found every Saturday at the brewery hosting Tours and Tastings.Strawn Brewing made their home in Fairburn, GA, and began the building process in 2012. They opened their doors on Labor Day weekend and had the official grand opening on December 8th.
