11 Awesome Craft Breweries You Have To Check Out In Atlanta

Atlanta’s the perfect city for beer lovers.

The ATL is crawling with incredible breweries, brewpubs, and taprooms that are dying to be discovered. Georgia’s craft beer scene has seen an explosion of success stories, awesome beer, and unforgettable nights out on the town.

Priorities have definitely shifted during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with smaller breweries rethinking production, branding, and every decision (big or small) faced when running a small business. There’s never been a more important time to ditch the big brands and support the ones closer to home, so Atlanta’s brewery scene can keep on thriving!
