Good Word Brewing is serving up great beer and food in the Atlanta suburbs
When Good Word Brewing opened in Duluth, GA the sleepy Atlanta suburb was just beginning to see some revitalization. The town has welcome new neighbors offering craft beer and great food to the area and Good Word is making its mark on craft beer.
On this week's show Good Word Brewing's co-owner and brewer Todd DiMatteo joins us in the studio. We've known Todd a long time, back when he was the general manager at the famed Brick Store Pub in Decatur, GA. His partner at Good Word, Ryan Skinner, also worked many years at Brick Store as the Beer Manager.
Good Word has been making waves recently. They were invited to this year's Shelton Fest in Buffalo, NY and they've received praise in the press from Thrillist and Hop Culture for their amazing beers. We talk with Todd about what this means for their brewery, Asheville breweries and beer bars, their upcoming 2nd anniversary, and we get his suggestions for pairing beer and Halloween candy.
Thrillist named Never Sleep one of the best IPAs in America. Todd generously shared his homebrew recipe with the Homebrewer's Association if you want to have a go at it.
