Craft Beverages, Brewing & Distilling
The town is well known for its established music scene, but is also host to many conferences, meetings and sporting events throughout the year, held at the growing Classic Center as well as on the University of Georgia’s campus. This steady flow of visitors has played an important role in the growth of the various breweries in this sector that have found success in Athens with their products and brewery tourism events. Craft brews alongside a regular showcase of wonderful music and art – some of the ingredients that make Athens such a cool place.
