ABOUT THE BREWERY:
Line Creek Brewing Company was born from a few long-time local residents with a passion for craft beer who saw the need for a great brewery in Peachtree City that could serve local residents and regional beer lovers alike. We began operations in June of 2018 on our brand-new Specific Mechanical 30 bbl brewhouse, 300 bbl fermentation capacity, and Wild Goose WGC-250 canning line. When you see our production operation, you will know it was designed by brewers for brewers. We have an incredibly vibrant and high-volume tap room which serves as one of the hubs of our local community, and we are steadily ramping up production volume to serve our ever-growing distribution footprint.
