Also in Roswell, From the Earth Brewing opens early in November at 1570 Holcomb Bridge Road. Here’s their grand opening details. Their mission is to provide their guests with a world-class dining experience in a casual environment serving craft beer, cocktails, and farm-to-table cuisine.

Roswell is already home to two breweries; Gate City Brewery and Abbey of the Holy Goats. You can sample many local tap beers at the planned Tap & Six opening soon as well as the established The Roswell Tap.

In Marietta, Treehorn Cider, a Georgia Made Hard Craft Cider, opened its tasting room. They have cider on draft and in cans all around Georgia. Treehorn uses fresh-pressed juice from regional orchards. They believe supporting local agriculture is good for sustainability, the economy of our state, the environment, and most of all, our taste buds.

Treehorn explains that making cider is a little bit like making wine. You need yeast, really big tanks and time to make the cider perfect. The tasting room hours are Friday: 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM, Saturday: 12:00 PM – 6:00 PM and Sunday: 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM.
