03 Oct Craft Beer is All the Rage!
September 2017 was a date to celebrate for craft beer lovers.
On September 1, the state of Georgia began permitting local consumers the legal right to buy a beer to drink on site at local breweries and to purchase a case a day directly from the brewery. Brewpubs are also allowed to sell beer to customers for take-home.
Roswell’s breweries made plans to begin implementation quickly to serve the needs of their customers and to raise awareness of the craft beer industry in the city. Make your plans to visit one of them soon.
Gate City Brewing Company on Magnolia Street (near the intersection of Magnolia & Canton) was the first to open in Roswell and has developed a strong reputation and loyal patrons. Next came Georgia’s first female brewery owner & brew master, Kathy Davis with Abbey of the Holy Goats Brewery (fascinating story about the name – be sure to ask her). This brewery is located in Northfield, just off Old Roswell Road and has become a popular spot to gather for those who love craft beer.
Variant Brewing Company will open in this month on Norcross Street, a short distance from Canton Street. The building is beautiful and we are promised the beers will be exceptional.
From the Earth Brewing Company (Brew Pub) has scheduled their opening for October 20. Located at 1570 Holcomb Bridge Road, this will be Roswell’s first farm to table brewpub with locally sourced cuisine, great beer and craft cocktails.
The breweries have a calendar filled with fun happenings, so check them out. http://www.visitroswellga.com/what-to-do/
