This Week on Beer Guys Radio

Georgia Beer

This week we’re talking Beer Fests!  We’re in the middle of beer fest season and there are plenty of amazing ones in Georgia to attend.  Last weekend we hung out at SweetWater’s 420 Fest with Cory Davis from 30A.com and 30A Radio and recorded our show in his very cool Airstream mobile studio.  We talk about 420 Fest from the beginnings to today, some of Georgia’s other great fests, as well as some others we love around the country.  We also share some info on what we think makes for a great beer fest.

Next week we’re talking with Cherry Street Brewing!  Cherry Street recently completed an expansion of their tasting room and they’ll be hosting their 2nd Spring Beer Fest and Cornhole Tournament this weekend.  We’ll talk with Nick Tanner about what’s new, what’s coming up, and what’s brewing.
