Creature Comforts Brewing Co.

Named one of the Best New Breweries in the U.S.!

Two UGA Alumni returned to Athens and renovated the former Snow Tire building in downtown Athens into Athens' latest craft brewery. Tours and tastings are offered:

TUESDAY - FRIDAY:  5 - 8 p.m.

SATURDAY: 1 - 4 p.m.

Creature Comforts Brewing Co. is a go-to destination for everyone visiting Athens who enjoys a nice cold beer. The brewery will produce about 4,000 barrels to start, which will be available on draft at local bars and restaurants.

Initial brews include:

  • Athena, a Berliner Weisse (gently tart, refreshing wheat beer)
  • Reclaimed Rye, with a lightly toasted French oak for a citrus/honey sweetness
  • Tropicalia, an IPA with tropical fruit, mango, and hops
  • Bebo, a pilsner with a bit of a twist

Follow them on social media to stay up to date on all things Creature Comforts. Continue to #CraveCuriosity and drink @Creaturebeer!

UPDATE, July 2015:

On Wednesday, July 1, 2015, SB63 (aka the “Beer Jobs Bill”) went into effect across the state of Georgia. This means that Creature Comforts is now selling their tours. Tours will still include glassware (optional), but now they are offering tours that include up to 36 oz. of tastings onsite and up to 72 oz. of souvenir beer to go.  They will be making their Curious Tuesday beers in larger quantities to accommodate crowler fills and they have some brewery only beers in the works among a few other special bottle releases coming up.
