Athens Beer Trail Launched

Wednesday, October 13th, 2021

Athens, Georgia, is many things: the birthplace of public higher education in America, home to hundreds of bands, center for top college sports action, and a diverse and vibrant arts and food scene.

Athens has also quietly become The All-American Beer Town.

The Athens Beer Trail gives you the opportunity to visit local breweries to discover their individual approach to craft beer. Along the way, we guarantee you'll find new flavors, new friends, and enjoy the Athens creative vibe. The Athens Beer Trail is the newest beer getaway and adventure in the south -- so, grab your friends and head to Athens for good times and great beer.



It's not every day you get prizes for drinking beer. But, lucky for you, this is how we do things here on the Athens Beer Trail.

It's as easy as 1 - 2 - 3!

  1. Get Your Guide: Walk up to the bar at any of the breweries and let a taproom staff member know you're traveling the Athens Beer Trail. If it's your first stop, they'll hand you the Athens Beer Trail Field Guide. The Guide is also available at the Historic Athens Welcome Center. Check out a preview of the Guide here.
  2. Get Stamps: Then, they'll stamp your Trail Guide on their feature page. Take your Trail Guide to additional breweries and get more stamps along the way as you move one step closer to earning your very own Athens Beer Trail Mug at the end of your journey!
  3. Get Your Mug*: When you've collected all six brewery stamps, take your fully stamped Trail Guide to the Historic Athens Welcome Center at 280 East Dougherty St. any day of the week between 10 AM and 5 PM and receive a keepsake item to remember your travels and solidify your new title as a member of the #AthensBrewCrew. [*Ugggh-- supply chain issues! Mugs are on back order, so either hold onto your Trail Guide until they arrive, or swing by the Welcome Center for a keepsake plus an IOU for the mug.]
