Brewery

“Monday Night Brewing originally grew out of a small Atlanta Bible study. They started brewing beer together on Monday nights back in 2006 as a way to get to know each other better. As they learned more about brewing (and each other), they started making better, more complex beers. Friends, neighbors, and random strangers started joining them in their driveway to brew and commune together. Beer quickly became more than just a weeknight hobby.”
