Georgia Beer Day Events | January 28, 2017

Georgia Beer Day

While small and independent craft breweries across the nation strive to compete with big beer for shelf space and tap handle placement, there’s another prominent movement happening in the South. More specifically, in the one remaining state that still prohibits the on-site purchase of beer at breweries: Georgia, ooh Georgia.

However, thanks to the unshakable determination of the Georgia Craft Brewers Guild, a bill now exists in the state Senate to modernize Georgia’s ridiculous beer laws once and for all.

We’re so close, you can almost taste it. And today, on Georgia Beer Day, you absolutely should. Get out there and support your local brewery and brewpub as they fundraise on behalf of the Georgia Craft Brewers Guild. Proceeds from each of the following events, gatherings, parties, bashes, hootenannies etc will help push Georgia beer forward.
