Macon Beer Company

Yash Patel first started brewing at age 13. While his dad was pretty happy about that, mom...not so much. However, since the brewing bug hit him quickly, he has spent a lot of time brewing beer. So it only made sense for him to take over ownership of Macon Beer company, central Georgia's first craft brewery. We talk to Yash, a native Maconite, about his beers, the growing craft beer scene in Macon, and his ideas behind brewing beer. Truck and Tap’s Beers of the Week: New Realm Radegast...

Taking a Wild Leap in LaGrange

Now that SB85 is law, it's a lot more feasable for breweries to stake their claim in Georgia. And one of the more impressive trends we've seen is breweries opening up in smaller communities.

Plus, we'll talk Thanksgiving beer pairings, and we'll have news of breweries opening...and closing. Truck and Tap’s Beers of the Week: Wild Leap's Chance IPA, Local Gold...


Gwinnett County's First Brewery

Gwinnett County is metro Atlanta's second most populous county. However, until recently, it lacked one thing: Its own craft brewery.

Beer Cockails with Jason Santamaria

To some, making a cocktail out of beer is a sin. But it's a delicious sin! Jason Santamaria, one of the founders of Second Self, started experimenting with beer cocktails in college as a way to make cheap beer taste better. Today? You could call him a mixologist. He regularly crafts cocktails for friends and family, and they dabble a little bit in (non-alcoholic) mixers at Second Self's taproom.

Keepin' it Local with Green Bus

Green Bus doesn't distribute, rarely sells its beer outside its taproom, and they're OK with that. When Jason Sledd named his homebrewery (Green Bus Brewing), many people joked that it was just a matter of time before he went "pro."

Farm to Table Beer and Bites with From the Earth
