This Week on Beer Guys Radio

Georgia Beer

We’re talking with Hopstix Brewpub!  Owner Andy Tan and Head Brewer Chris Collier joined us in the studio this week to talk about Georgia’s newest brewpub.  With a mix of Asian-fusion cuisine, tasty house-brewed beer, lots of guest taps, and a nice spirits selection they have something for everyone.  We took a trip there after the show taping this week and we highly recommend it.

Next week we’re talking with The Porter Beer Bar!  Molly Gunn and Nick Rutherford will join us to talk about their amazing beer bar.  Voted best in Georgia and the US many times over, their spot should be on every beer geek’s destination list. 

Listen to Beer Guys Radio every Saturday in Atlanta at 1:00 PM Eastern on AM 920 or Sunday at 6:00 AM on Biz 1190.  If you’re in Alabama you can catch the show live at 1:00 PM Central on 92.9 FM / 1450 AM in Huntsville or 94.7 FM / 1490 AM in Decatur  We’re also streaming live on our website, iHeartRadio, or TuneIn.  Can’t catch the live show?  That’s cool, we’ve got you covered.  All past shows are available on-demand on our site or your favorite podcasting app.

SB 85 UPDATE: No movement this week, the bill is on the General calendar and can be called up for a vote at any time, but so far it’s still waiting for its time in the spotlight.  For more info see our full coverage of SB 85 here.
