29 Mar Take a Tour of Marietta’s Breweries
Now that we are in the long, hot days of summer, you may find yourself craving an ice cold beer (if you are aged 21 or older, that is). Luckily, Marietta’s got a wide variety of local breweries to choose from so you can quench your thirst. Try them all by taking a brewery tour of Marietta! We guarantee that you will find a locally crafted libation that will make you fall in love.
First stop: Red Hare Brewing
We will start where it all began – at Red Hare Brewing. In case you were not aware, Red Hare was actually the first brewery in Georgia to can their craft beer – in 2012! Since then, multiple other Georgia breweries have followed in their footsteps, causing local craft beer to become one of the most popular trends in the state. Not only does Red Hare offer six year-round beers; they also pour out seasonal and craft soda brands.
Next up: Glover Park Brewery
Located just two blocks south of the Historic Marietta Square, this brewery occupies the former 1930’s-era Sears building. Named after the iconic park in the heart of the square, Glover Park Brewery has a dog-friendly beer garden and offers six locally crafted brews.
Third Stop: Schoolhouse Brewing
Schoolhouse Brewing, Georgia’s first open source and rotating brewery and recently voted #1 New Brewery in Georgia, claims the largest taproom in Marietta. Sip on some local brews while playing games, listening to live music, and indulging in some grub from a food truck. Schoolhouse is also the only Atlanta brewery with a fully stocked homebrew supply store. Fall in love with a beer and take their slogan “Where Education Meets Recess!” to heart and learn to make your own beer at home!
Last but not least: Ironmonger Brewing
Since 2016, Ironmonger Brewing has been pouring out brews and inspiring craft beer lovers to “#ForgetYourOwnPath.” Ironmonger stands out among the rest with their unique flavors and hilarious beer names derived from shows such as The Office (Imperial Stout “Goodbye Toby” and Saison “That’s What She Saison”).
