This Week on Beer Guys Radio

Georgia Beer

We’re talking with the team at Cherry Street Brewing Co-Op!  Just a few days after their 2nd Spring Beer Fest and Cornhole Tournament we sat down with Nick Tanner, Jonny Bradley, and Chris Williams from Cherry Street to chat about their recent taproom and brewhouse expansions, barrel-aging program, brewery sellouts, and of course about their beer.  If you haven’t been to Cherry Street yet you need to change that, it’s well worth the trip.

Next week we’re talking with Torched Hop Brewing!  Torched Hop is one of the relatively new kids on the Georgia beer block but they are making quite an impression.  They have an awesome and spacious location on Ponce de Leon in Atlanta, excellent food offerings, and many have said they are “killing the IPA game.”  We’ll chat about their first year in business and what’s on the horizon.

Listen to Beer Guys Radio every Saturday in Atlanta at 1:00 PM Eastern on AM 920 or Sunday at 6:00 AM on Biz 1190.  If you’re in Alabama you can catch the show live at 1:00 PM Central on 92.9 FM / 1450 AM in Huntsville or 94.7 FM / 1490 AM in Decatur  We’re also streaming live on our website, iHeartRadio, or TuneIn.  Can’t catch the live show?  That’s cool, we’ve got you covered.  All past shows are available on-demand on our site or your favorite podcasting app.
