Beer Guide to Athens: Akademia Brewing Company
Let's hear it for the new kids on the block! Akademia is the newest brewery to hit the streets of Athens and you'll want to be one of the first to check it out. Only open for a short while now, Akademia is slowly but surely getting their name out there. Now, you won't stumble upon it downtown and you'll definitely need to get in your card to get out there, but it'll be worth the visit. Unlike any other brewery in town, Akademia has a full restaurant! They serve food until 10pm but keep the drinks rollin' out until 2am. Not a beer lover? That's okay! They also have a full cocktail menu. There are drink options for everyone.
A few weeks ago Zach and I rolled out there to see what it was all about. The staff was so friendly and we felt really welcome. It's just tucked behind a gas station next to Georgia Square Mall, but once you walk inside it really opens up. There's a huge space with an abundance of seating as well as a full outdoor bar coming!
There's an abundance of seating inside as well as tv's. It's a great place to go to watch a football game and have a nice cold craft beer in your hand. While we didn't make it in time to eat there, we are planning on returning soon to do so. The food looks amazing and the menu is well rounded for mostly any eater.
Now for ahead and head over to Akademia! It'll be an experience like no other in town.
