As a hazy orange moon, colored by far away wildfires in Canada and Alaska, hung high in the late-July sky, a line snaked the length of half a football field outside the front door of Burnt Hickory Brewery in metro Atlanta Tuesday night.
The people at the very front of the line had been there since 3 p.m., tolerating Georgia’s heat and humidity for hours. Others had wandered up to the Kennesaw brewery after work or after dinner.
Craft beer lovers in other states may wonder, “What’s the big deal? People stand in line for bottle releases all the time.” But you’d be wrong. This doesn’t happen in Georgia.

The SweetWater 420 Fest rolled into downtown Atlanta April 17-19 — and so did big time thunderstorms.
It had rained in Atlanta every single day of the week leading up to the festival’s kick-off Friday. The weather left Centennial Olympic Park, home of the 1996 Summer Olympics, a virtual mud pit. Even the walkways were a slip ’n slide of muck.
