The boom in Atlanta craft beer has led to so many new breweries, that it's challenging for even locals to keep up. Now, the clever advent of the Atlanta Beer Bus makes it even easier to hop from brewery to brewery. For only $15 a day, you get a wristband for access to get on and off at any one of the bus stops and linger as long as you'd like at any locations. The Atlanta Beer Bus makes a continuous loop between Monday Night Brewing, Urban Tree Cidery, Second Self Beer Co., Scofflaw Brewing Co., Red Brick Brewery, American Spirit Whiskey, Sweetwater Brewing Co., Orpheus Brewing, Park Tavern and the Midtown MARTA station. Created by a local craft beer lover, the fleet of party buses offers safe and reliable transport around town, and are each equipped with comfortable, heated/air conditioned group seating, popular music and friendly drivers.
Currently, the shuttle doesn't take reservations and operates Friday from 4-10 pm, Saturday from noon to 10 pm and Sunday from 1-6 pm. Just look for the Beer Nerd holding the Atlanta Beer Bus sign when a shuttle is about to take off if you're ready to roll (approximately every 20 to 30 minutes). Bonus: the beer nerd travels along on each bus and shares homegrown knowledgeable about each location's history and new releases as well as welcomes anyone from a first-timer to Atlanta's beer scene to a seasoned home brewer. On board, the order of the day's stops is posted so you can plot your sipping schedule accordingly.
