WINNER: Best local beer in Atlanta

Atlanta is known far and wide for our excellent and abundant local breweries. This week's Best of Atlanta poll found out what your favorite local breweries are. 

As Roswell's first craft brewery, Gate City Brewing proudly steps into the No. 1 spot. Their independent and pioneering spirit is reflected in their various in-house brews. Take a tour of their facility for only $15, which also gets you 36 ounces of samples in their tasting room. 

Is it a coincidence that Second Self Beer Company is sitting pretty in second place? This brewery is worthy of its positive buzz around town. Catch some live music in their tasting room while savoring a frothy house-made beverage. 

Coming in third, Wild Heaven Craft Beers is focused on world-class brews designed to offer something new to the beer landscape. This innovative brewery adds a distinct American flair to the great tradition of European brewing. No wonder they are an Atlanta favorite. 

Still thirsty? You haven't done yourself any justice if you haven't experienced the brews of all of our official nominees: Monday Night Brewing, SweetWater Brewing Company, Orpheus Brewing, Red Brick Brewing Company, Torched Hop Brewing Company and Eventide Brewing.
