Georgia HBC
« on: January 23, 2012, 09:14:23 PM »
The only HBC i found in ga was in canton. I live in newnan just south of the airport. Does anyone know of a club down this way or would be interested in starting one with me? Sorry if this should be somewhere else, im new and didnt see a search feature  for the forums.

Thanks guys. I never knew about that place. Not sure how i missed it after all the searches. Ive been buying from hop city for a while. So glad theres a place a little closer to home.

Haven't heard of the hop breakers but they may be around.  But there are a number of very good, well-run clubs in and around Atlanta, including Covert Hops Society, Alpharetta Brewmasters, & Final Gravity to name a few.  The closest one to you would be South Atlanta Homebrewers.

Yes your best bet to the one closest to you would the South Atlanta Brewers. We are a group of various home brewers from Stockbridge, to Peachtree City and even from Senoia.
I would suggest you talk to Doug in Just Brew It and you may run into a few of us from the club in there during the week. Hardly on Thursdays, everyone is at 15th Street Pizza in Stockbridge.
