Atlanta Brewing is one of the oldest and most influential craft breweries in the Southeast. Atlanta Brewing Company was created in 1993 by former Guinness executive Greg Kelly. At the time, most breweries were moving towards more high tech and efficient means of production. His experience with Guinness taught him the value of old-world techniques and equipment. Old-world style cold tanks and pine-sided vats were brought from England to ensure that the beer created at Atlanta brewing was as authentic as possible.

While it is important at Atlanta Brewing to honor the old European style of beer making, it is just as important to create new and dynamic interpretations and flavors. One of the favorites at the taproom is a great combination of both. The Soul of The City American Pale Ale utilizes pale malt as well as flaked oats and three different hops from the Northwest. Citra, Denali and Crystal hops are added to ensure The Soul of The City is a rich, bright, and fruity take on an American Pale Ale. Another inventive riff on a classical style is the Homestand Pilsner Bohemian. At its heart, The Homestand is a classic lager brewed with malt from the Smoky Mountains. It has a dry-hop flavor of Mosaic and Cascade, which gives it a complexity that inspires repeat drinking. Atlanta Brewing's taproom is the perfect place to hang out with old friends or make new ones while enjoying some of the best beer in Atlanta.
