Tour Georgia's Second Oldest Brewery

Since 1993 beer has been brewed in Cartesville, GA at the Anheuser-Busch (Budweiser) brewery, a couple years before Atlanta Brewing Co (Red Brick) began brewing. Possibly, you have seen the building just off I75 as you travel. The brewery was built with a public tour "trail" & viewing areas. Until now, the general public has not been able to see and learn about the process that turns Georgia mountain water into Anheuser-Busch brews.

The tours are available Thursday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Brewery staff will guide visitors through key parts of brewing and packaging operations during an hour-long tour that showcases the seven stages of the time-honored Budweiser brewing process. The tour begins at the brewhouse and moves through the starting cellar, packaging and fermentation areas before wrapping up at the beechwood aging cellar and finishing tank.

Following the tour, guests 21 and older can sample a variety of the beers brewed at the Cartersville brewer…
