Remember that archaic time when breweries in Georgia weren’t allowed to send you home with any beer? Oh, that was yesterday? Weird.
Well, folks, it’s a new era. Thanks to the tireless work of the Georgia Craft Brewer’s Guild, our lobbyists, brewery owners, and the countless local beer lovers who helped us pass SB63, as of July 1, we can now offer up to 72 ounces of our tasty cold snacks to go as a souvenir with the purchase of a tour. You read that right. Beer. Straight from our fermentors to your fridge. We want you to continue supporting your local retailers to buy our beer there but when you do visit the brewery you’ll be able to take home a souvenir with your paid tour. It’ll be like going to Disneyland and getting a free Mickey Mouse hat with your admission ticket. Except the Mickey Mouse hat will be made out of malt, hops, yeast (and love) and you’ll be able to drink it later at home. And there won’t be a lot of creepy Disney characters walking around.
In addition to the take home tours that we’ll be offering, we’ll continue to have our $10 “drink it here tour” at the brewery, but the maximum quantity we can serve has gone from 32 to 36 ounces. More beer! Woo!
Check out our awesome new chalkboard (pictured below) for the different packages we’ll be offering. We’re throwing a lot of new information at you, and there will a learning curve for us too, but with a little bit of patience and (a tasting of no more than 36 ounces of) beer, we’re positive that the changes this new law allows will be the best thing to happen to breweries since, well, beer.
