The Beer Guys have a quest. To visit every brewery in Georgia this year. We were able to head to southwest Georgia this episode, and check out Pretoria Fields Collective.
It's a brewery started by farmers and dedicated to making everything as local as possible - from the fruits they use in some of their beers, to the malt to even the hops.Head brewer Eric Kirchner and marketing director Jennifer Harris joined us this week to talk about starting up a brewery in a rural area, the importance of a true farm-to-glass program, and the differences between California and Southwest Georgia.
