Gwinnett County is metro Atlanta’s second most populous county.

However, until recently, it lacked one thing: Its own craft brewery. Lawrenceville’s Slow Pour Brewing Company changed that earlier this year.

Located just off the Lawrenceville Square, Slow Pour took a dilapidated building and turned it into a gathering place.

One of Slow Pour’s founders, John Reynolds and brewer Chase Medlin joins us on the show this week to talk about their journey…and their beers.

We also head to SweetWater Brewing to check out a collaboration with Relix Magazine and Kyle Hollingsworth of The String Cheese Incident.

Plus, we sample Southbound’s newest version of Moonlight Drive….and compare it to a 2015 version Aaron found in the back of his fridge.
