This Week on Beer Guys Radio

Georgia Beer

Our road tripping continues with Akademia Brewing at Tinypalooza!  We had a great time at Lincoln Fill Station’s Tinypalooza 2.5 and an awesome conversation with the crew from Akademia Brewing.  They share info on the plans for their brewpub in Athens and the importance of offering awesome food and beer perfect for pairing.  We also talk about the changing landscape of Georgia beer as well as the evolution of craft beer.  Tiny joins us to chat about Lincoln Fill Station and how they’ve worked hard to become a beer destination in an area with few options.

Next week we’re back in the studio with Rocket Republic Brewing Company.   Head Brewer and Co-Founder Eric Crigger joins us in the studio to share the story of his Huntsville brewery.
