Arches Brewing Opens in Hapeville, GA…

Emily Tracy, SPR Atlanta

Historic Hapeville is much more than than a town you pass on the way to Hartsfield-Jackson, and a new brewery gives Atlantans another reason to stop by.

Arches Brewing, located in Hapeville’s arts district, opens its tasting room doors April 16. The brewery will feature three year-round offerings and four seasonal lagers, a refreshing departure from the IPA and sour-heavy breweries that open weekly in the U.S.

Biochemist and brewmaster Jamey Adams is using his chemistry background to perfect old-world beer styles ­­– combining American craft and traditional brewing techniques to make for a delicious layover.
