Brandon Hintz is owner of Hop Alley Brewpub in Alpharetta, GA and Currahee Brewing in Franklin, NC. Hop Alley was one of the first to break into the now growing Alpharetta craft beer scene back in 2013 and Brandon added Currahee to his arsenal in 2016. Along with head brewer Taylor Yates, he has grown the North Carolina brewery, and is now distributing in Georgia. And if that’s not all, Hop Alley was one of the first brewpubs in the Alpharetta area. We talk to Brandon about his homebrewing background, his reasoning behind opening up a brewpub, and why he had to open Currahee in North Carolina instead of Georgia.
