Roth and Goddard met at the National Beer Wholesalers Convention in 2008, where the two set out on a quest to open a brewery. Seven years and 520 brewery visits later, Southern Brewing Company was established in Athens, Georgia. Southern Brewing Company is the first purpose-built brewery in Georgia and is nestled within 15-acres of land, just 2.5 miles outside of downtown Athens. 

Visitors can tour the brewery free of charge, and Southern sells beer by the pint starting at just $5.

Southern is also open during all UGA home games, regardless of start time, and patrons can purchase up to 288 ounces in canned Hobnail or other limited releases.
