The Classic City Brew Fest in an Athens institution.  In its 24th year, a lot has changed since organizer Owen Ogletree founded the event.  Last year, the festival made a big switch amid the flood of "regular" beer festivals and went to a primarily cask ale format.

This year, we catch up with Akademia Brewing to see what the last 12 months held for them.  Their beer is available in cans now, and they've recently remodeled and added a larger lounge to their brewpub.  Owners Matt Casey and Morgan Wireman join us to fill us in.

We also catch up with a soon-to-be brewery in the Normaltown neighborhood of Athens.  Athentic Brewing gives a nod to their city and their logo (shaped like a guitar pick) pays homage to the rich musical history of Athens, home to bands like REM, THe B-52s, Drive by Truckers, and Widespread Panic.
