This Week on Beer Guys Radio

Georgia Beer

This week we’re talking with Alpharetta’s Hop Alley Brewpub!  Owner Brandon Hintz joined us in the studio this week to talk about his brewpub in Alpharetta as well as his production brewery (Currahee) in Franklin, NC.  We chat about the growing beer scene in Alpharetta, why he had to open his production brewery outside of Georgia, the awesome pub good they offer at Hop Alley, how he uses the brewpub as his testing grounds for new brews, and of course the beers you can find on tap when you visit.

Next week we’re talking Beer Fests!  The Beer Guys were invited to join 30A Radio at 420 Fest and tape our show in their awesome mobile Airstream studio.  We talk about the growth of 420 Fest as well as share some thoughts on the other awesome beer fests in Georgia and Alabama.
