The festival will be hosted by the state’s oldest craft brewery, Red Brick Brewing Co.

As one of the founding members of the Georgia Craft Brewers’ Guild, one of our goals has been to mentor up and coming breweries. So to have over 25 Georgia breweries under one roof shows the progress that the community at large is making.”
