For the fifth year, Cobb Travel & Tourism (CT&T) is highlighting Cobb County’s spirit makers, breweries, wineries and distilleries with the annual Bubbles & Brews.

Throughout the month of March, visitors can sample participating “Hop Spots” along the Cobb Ale Trail, attend special events and vote for their favorites, all while winning prizes.

A free “BrewPass,” available online and at participating Hop Spots, will guide guests to each participating beverage maker, from the newly opened Frog Rock Brewing in downtown Austell to the local Marietta favorite Red Hare Brewing.

According to the press release:

Enthusiasts can earn stamps by visiting participating beverage makers and attending special Bubbles & Brews Night events featuring fun activities and themed giveaways. Visitors can also vote online for their favorite best-sellers, unique brews and more across a variety of categories.

“Cobb County stands out as one of the best spots to sample a diverse range of craft beverages, from beers and ciders to meads and spirits,” said Holly Quinlan, president and CEO of Cobb Travel & Tourism. “We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate each of the craft beverage makers in our destination and welcome visitors to dive into our craft beverage scene firsthand at the fifth-ever Bubbles & Brews.”

The press release gave this overview of the industry in Cobb:

Located just outside of Atlanta, Cobb County is home to 16 breweries, wineries and distilleries. The destination has become a thriving hub for craft beverage makers of all kinds, such as the newly opened Frog Rock Brewery in Austell, the industry-leading Red Hare Brewing Co., which was the first craft brewery in Georgia to offer beer in cans, and the hidden gem Viking Alchemist Meadery in Smyrna.
