Two of Georgia’s best breweries celebrate their anniversary Saturday!

It was like it was yesterday. This is Creature Comforts a few months prior to their grand opening almost a year ago. 

Here are the beer lists and entertainment schedules directly from Burnt Hickory and Creature Comforts


Always showing love to Georgia's beer scene, I have covered both Kennesaw’s Burnt Hickory and Athens’ Creature Comforts on Cruisin’ For A Brewsin’ since their inception three and one year ago respectively. Since I obtained the beer list for both celebrations going down Saturday, April 25thrain or shine directly from them, I had to spread the good news ASAP! I congratulate them both and will continue to be one of the best not only in the South, but in the nation!

Straight from Scott Hedeen, the Burnt Hickory founder and Brewmaster:
Here it is! We are ready for rain and have all of the tasting areas under tents or inside the brewery. There are NO pre-sale tickets for entry. Glasses are $15
You must be 21 to partake in beer samples.
