Arches Brewing | Hapeville

If you’re looking to grab a locally crafted beer with a friend, this is the place to go! Arches has a beer for everyone - whether that’s the Zero Zero Double IPA or a classic Lloyd’s Light lager. The outdoor biergarten includes picnic tables and fire pit seating, making it the perfect gathering spot on a sunny day.

Beer Girl, Growlers & Bottleshop | Hapeville

With a wide selection of rare craft beer, cider, wine, and even non-alcoholic options, Beer Girl has everyone covered! Have a drink by the glass or take a freshly poured growler or assortment of bottles to enjoy at home. The best part? Beer Girl is located right in Hapeville’s Arts Alley Open Container District, so you can sip on your drink of choice while taking a stroll.

Brake Pad | College Park

Located in Historic Downtown College Park, Brake Pad is known for its inviting atmosphere, incredible patio, tasty burgers, and beer selection. It's been a go-to spot for locals and travelers flying in and out of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport for over 20 years!

Brass Tap | Hapeville

With a wall of draught pulls and a robust bottle selection, Brass Tap offers 150+ craft beers from around the globe right here in the District. And the people serving your brew can answer just about any beer-related query you throw their way. Daily specials, unique monthly events, and a solid food menu make this a regular spot for locals and visitors alike.

Corner Tavern | Hapeville

With locations in Hapeville and Little Five Points, Corner Tavern is an Atlanta favorite. What goes better with a burger than a nice cold beer? Corner Tavern's extensive beer menu might make it difficult to decide, but you can always play a round of pool, hang out on the patio, or challenge your drinking buddy to a yard game while you sample a few.

The Manchester Arms Pub | College Park

Nestled in a College Park neighborhood in a home-turned-pub, the Manchester Arms Pub is a local favorite and a respite for travelers. The cozy interior will transport you to England while you enjoy a Smithwick Ale at the bar. Or opt to sip a brew al fresco on the inviting patio. Either way, it's a great place to gather with friends for a cold one.
