The guys with the beards are Akademia, a new brewpub opening in Athens. The guys without the beards? That’s us.

The show went on the road once again this week.

This time to Snellville’s Lincoln Fill Station for TinyPalooza 2.5!

As one festival-goer said, it’s one of the best, underrated festivals in the state. An amazing list of bottles and taps, and a great vibe (with hardly any lines)!

We were able to check out a brand new brewpub in planning, Akademia Brewing from Athens.

Truck and Tap‘s Beers of the Week:

Akademia’s brand new brews, including:

Hoprodite, a 5.5% New England-style IPA and

K is for Kookies
