Visit the First Ever Black-Owned Brewery in Atlanta, Georgia
Need a quick getaway? Desire some time to unwind, have a good meal, go shopping, blow off some steam at an attraction, and take in a good view? A great extended weekend is in Atlanta, Georgia. From Tuscaloosa, it’s about a three-hour drive.
Now you can add to the list of things to do in Atlanta, Georgia. You can visit the first-ever black-owned brewery with a clever name, “Hippin Hop.” According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, “the venture comes from husband and wife Clarence and Donnica Boston, who live in the neighborhood.”
At Hippin Hop, they have “just one goal in mind: brewing balanced, tasty, creative beer, to serve to Georgians and all beer lovers.” They also serve up fun with games in the beer garden with Jenga, Beer Pong, and Cornhole. You had me at cornhole; now that’s my game right there. Located in the East Atlanta Village, you can check them out at 1308 Glenwood Avenue SE, Atlanta, Georgia 30316.
Let’s talk about the food. Looking over the menu makes me want to take the drive right now. Menu standout is the smoked gouda oysters. Also, the lobster and Belgium waffles and alligator po'boy sounds delicious too. Sign me up for the Hippin Hop’s Hippin remoulade sauce.
