This Week on Beer Guys Radio

Georgia Beer

This week we’re talking with Scofflaw, Creature Comforts, AND Southern Brewing Co.  We attended the Classic City Brew Fest in Athens last weekend and took the opportunity to chat with a couple of Athens’ breweries – Southern Brewing Co. and Creature Comforts.  The gang from Scofflaw wandered too close to our recording session so we pulled them in as well.  We talk Athens beer, what’s coming up from the breweries, and general beer geekery.  We also talk with Friend of the Show Owen Ogletree, organizer of the Classic City Brew Fest, about this year’s event and how it’s changed since he started it all 22 years ago.

Next week we’ll talk with Hop Alley Brewpub.  Owner Brandon Hintz will join us in the Beer Guys Studios to chat about his brewpub in Alpharetta as well as his production brewery, Currahee, in North Carolina.
