Who doesn’t like a good beer? After years of drinking, what can be considered cheaply, I have found the subtle nuances that makes a beer really great. There are plenty of choices, darks, ambers, IPAs, browns, whites, small batches, sessions, Octoberfests, flavored, hoppy, smooth. You name it and there is probably a few options you can choose from. I personally love dark beers. Stouts are even better in the winter time but I usually enjoy them no matter what season it is. In Atlanta and other places around the country there has been a push back as of late against the bigger, more established companies. Home brewers have left their kitchens, bathtubs and basements and gone professional, bringing their favorite recipes to the table for everyone to enjoy. Jekyll Brewing is relatively new in Alpharetta. The brewers have spent the past year or so fine tuning their tasty beverages and have five full time beers with a few seasonal and some new ideas on the way. I spent some time Tuesday morning photographing their bottling process for a photo feature highlighting the trend of making craft beers around the metro area. A relatively small operation, when it comes time to bottle their tasty beverages, it’s all hands on deck.
