Local Craft Beer – Featuring Atlanta Brewing Co. in August

It’s that time of the month again! No, not THAT time of the month. We’re talking about downtown Woodstock’s Friday Night Live event held on the first Friday of each month. FNL is a themed event that brings everyone in the area together for fun, food, local craft beer, small business appreciation, etc. The best part about it is that it’s fun for the whole family! This month’s theme is a big one, one you’ve surely all been waiting for. It’s Harry Potter night! How fun is that? Dress up as your favorite Harry Potter character and if you’re feeling confident, enter the costume contest. The contest starts at 8 PM on Friday at the gazebo at the Park at City Center. There’s a contest for kids and one for adults, but winners of both groups receive prizes.

Did you know that Freight Kitchen & Tap features a brewery of the month? Now that August is here, it’s time to introduce our August brewery – Atlanta Brewing Company! Visit the Atlanta Brewing beer tent in Freight’s rock garden tomorrow night during FNL for some tasty local craft beer.

So, what’s the scoop on Atlanta Brewing Company anyway? Well, for one thing, it’s Georgia’s very first craft brewery. Former Guinness executive, Greg Kelly, founded Atlanta Brewing in 1993. The brewery is a converted old brick warehouse, hence why their first flagship beer is called Red Brick. From 2010 to 2018, Atlanta Brewing publicly changed its name to Red Brick Brewing. But in 2018 for their 25thanniversary, they went back to the OG Atlanta Brewing name.

Come to Freight all month long for $6 Atlanta Brewing drafts! Better yet, visit us any Monday when all our craft on draft is just $4. You can’t get a deal like that anywhere else in the area.
