If not the best brewery in GA, itís top 5 for sure. Innovative beers, nice folks. Just expanded the brewery, no tasting room yet but they do once a month tours- which are usually a must do. The beer is expensive right now outside the brewery, but after they settle in with more production and wider distribution, that should change.

The sun is shining (at least here in Georgia), itís a gorgeous day, tasty food is plentiful, we all have our health, the world keeps on turning, and a wide variety of music is available for our listening enjoyment!
If I may ask, what more does one need? Sure, a cool westerly breeze wafting through the open windows, the dog contentedly sleeping on the couch, and the smell from a well-smoked brisket still lingering in the air are all good and fine, acceptable answers, but what else?
If you answered Burnt Hickory Brewing, then youíre ahead of the game and joining the winning team.
There are certainly more breweries located in Georgia then when I started this beer thing. Many are very good. A couple are excellent. A few are true misses. Some are as bland and mild as a babyís fart. Oftentimes, trying to compare them is like comparing apples to oranges and oranges to fresh-baked pretzel bread.
Burnt Hickoryís beers are big and they are bold. Yes, I know I throw that around far too often, but this time itís 100% accurate. Their Charred Walls of the Damned is the most fun you can have while actively fearing for your own life. The Kolb Farm Imperial Stout will leave you with way more blood to clean up in the morning than just about any other local stout available. All of their beers are good, many of them are exceptional. Just take care not to chug them down too fast, lest your friends mistake you for attempting to win a free T-shirt or get your name on a wall somewhere. I wish them all the best as they proceed through this time or growth and expansion.
I will now yield the floor.
