New at Jekyll

Jekyll Brewing, based right here in Alpharetta, just announced that Seven Bridges Oktoberfest, a Märzen style beer fermented with true German lager yeast, will be available in package and on tap in select markets in Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina, through the end of the month. Seven Bridges nods to both the traditional German Märzen-style as well as new American techniques, by using both Munich malts and Tettnanger hops. While Seven Bridges is traditionally German in nature, the name is wildly regional: inspired by the allegedly haunted CCC Road with seven bridges, in Rome, Georgia. JekyllBrewing.com
