Jekyll Brewing Company is located in Alpharetta, GA but describes itself as being inspired by Jekyll Island, one of Georgia’s famous barrier islands. The tasting room is quite large compared to many of the area’s other breweries, which means there’s more room for visitors, and even enough room for some arcade games, ping pong, and other games. Jekyll Brewing had several beers on tap, half of which were their standard line-up, while the other half were seasonal and more specialty beers. They also had a beer on cask, the only brewery in Georgia we’ve encountered with a cask beer. As usual, we purchased a tasting, which, unfortunately, was on the more expensive end, although we also got to take home a 32 oz. crowler of beer (the tasting with the take home beer is the only option Jekyll Brewing offers). We tasted five beers (visitors get six tasting tickets, but the cask beer was two tickets to taste), some of which we enjoyed and would certainly have again.
We enjoyed our visit to Jekyll Brewing. It might be a bit of a drive for some Atlantans, but it’s a great hang out spot for those who live near Alpharetta and a fun trip for those in the area who enjoy some good beer.
