Georgia’s craft beer scene has exploded over the last decade, with the city of Atlanta and surrounding metro area seeing new breweries opening nearly every year since 2010. But the pandemic forced many of the state’s smaller breweries to limit production and rethink how to keep cash flowing in, including boosting retail sales, hosting food pop-ups and food trucks, and expanding patio seating into parking lots or creating vibrant beer gardens. Most of those pivots have now become permanent. With the beer scene continuing to thrive in Georgia, check out these breweries and brewpubs offering some of Atlanta’s best bets for beer.
