It's another episode of Cruisin' For A Brewsin'!


Cheers Y'all!
I love this ongoing Cruisin' For A Brewsin' series where I produce videos with some very talented team members of my AllWays Open Creative team to bring you with me during my travels, and this one is definitely a standout! This time, I am taking you to an extra gangster brew spot called Local Vine in northwest Atlanta right off Cobb Parkway. My homies got me a gift card, I went by, and spent at least an hour looking for liquid goodness!
Anyway, here are some of my favorite moments. The address and contact info is below.
Enjoy the show!
