This Week in Georgia Beer | March 10-16, 2017
This Week on Beer Guys Radio
We’re talking with The Porter Beer Bar! We sat down with owners Molly Gunn and Nick Rutherford in The Porter’s amazing beer cellar this week to chat about being one of the best beer bars in the world, maintaining their extensive beer list, craft beer trends, and salt and vinegar popcorn.
Next week we’re hitting the links with Topgolf, Reformation, and Jekyll! We’ve got a variety show coming up for you. We’ll join Topgolf to talk about why they’re a great location to get together and have some fun while enjoy some craft beer. We’ll also catch up with Reformation and Jekyll to see what’s in the tanks for golf season.

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.
