Creature Comforts was one of the top 10 winners for Best New Brewery 2016 by USA Today. Two UGA Alumni returned to Athens and renovated the former Snow Tire building in downtown Athens into a go-to spot for fine craft beer. Bibo, Tropicalia, Reclaimed Rye and Athena are year round beers and are joined by many seasonal brews.

Tours are offered during operating hours, free of charge. Visitors may also purchase beer by the pint in the tasting room.

Pints start at $5, and Creature Comforts also offers flights and samplers for those wishing to try several of their draft options. Customers can buy a variety of Creature Comfort staples and limited releases and can take up to 288 ounces of canned or bottled beer home with them.
