Gate City Brewing Company
Gate City Brewing Company was founded in 2013 in Roswell, Georgia. The name is rooted in neighboring Atlanta’s historical moniker as the “Gate City of the New South” due to its reputation as a hub for culture, commerce and transportation. The logo—the phoenix rising—is a testament to the grit, perseverance and sheer will of the city and region alike. At Gate City we strive to brew beers that embody the very same independent spirit that inspired us to chase our dreams of opening Roswell’s first craft brewery. This is our home, where we’re raising our families, and we see it as a great privilege and tremendous honor to be a part of this community. We hope you’ll join us on our journey. Currently, Gate City serves 8 different beers through their Taproom and the offerings are continuously changing. Come by and see what’s on tap today.

Abbey of the Holy Goats
Abbey of the Holy Goats is a small-scale craft brewery. The first female-owned Brewery in Georgia, founder Kathy Davis decided either to start a goat farm in some remote wilderness or pursue her passion of producing her award-winning Belgian-style beers for the public. The brewery won out, and Abbey of the Holy Goats was born. The Abbey produces innovative Belgian-style beers designed for perfect food pairing. Davis said the name, Abbey of the Holy Goats, encompasses many of her interests in life. “The name comes from my interest in abbeys as far as living in them, and the beer styles, and the goats come from my love of goats. And, of course, it’s also a play on the words ‘holy ghost.’ The monastic lifestyle is still something that really interests me. No matter what religion you follow, it’s always a wonderful thing to endeavor towards.”
Tours open to the public ages 21 & up
Friday – 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Saturday – 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Opening late 2016/early 2017
Variant is in the early planning stages, targeting late 2016 to open its doors, bringing the total of breweries in Roswell to three. Matt Curling, Variant’s owner and Brewmaster says the focus “…will be on variety rather than quantity so the smaller fermenters will allow us to explore some more experimental recipes.” The brewery will be located in Roswell very near to the Canton Street scene. They’ve acquired a 3,600 square feet building where most of the space will be dedicated to their brewhouse. Initially Variant will start with a 7-barrel system with a couple 7-barrel fermenters and brite tank as well as a couple 3.5-barrel fermenters and a brite tank. Curling continues, “Our goal is to push the limits of craft beer by modifying traditional recipes and experimenting with various adjuncts, unique grain bills, hop schedules and yeasts to create a wide variety of unique drinking experiences.”
