From design to quality control, from logistics to marketing, Georgia Tech graduates are making their mark on the ever-expanding brewing industry — in Atlanta, across Georgia, and around the country.
Particularly here at home, craft brewing is a huge growth industry and economic boon, thanks in no small part to a law that went into effect in 2017. For the first time, Georgia breweries and distilleries were able to sell directly to both onsite and offsite consumers. The impact has been felt from Atlanta to every corner of the state as new craft breweries, microbreweries, and brewpubs open their doors.
Although these engineers, entrepreneurs, and industry advocates come from different backgrounds and followed disparate academic and professional paths, they all agree that Georgia Tech gave them the skills and the confidence to follow their dreams.
It just so happens that those dreams are best served from a tap.
