Taking a tasty tour of the Topside Tap Trail:  

Georgia’s long, hot summer days will be here before we know it, and there’s a good chance they’ll put in the mood for a cold glass of beer.  

Well, here’s some good news — when you’ve got that craving for a craft brew, seven of north Georgia’s top breweries are waiting with open arms … and taps!

This morning, the Good Day Atlanta feature team spent some time exploring the Topside Tap Trail, a collection of seven craft breweries located in metro Atlanta’s "topside" — Roswell, Alpharetta, and Sandy Springs. 

The trail is the result of a collaboration between Visit Roswell, Awesome Alpharetta, and Visit Sandy Springs (the cities’ respective tourism marketing organizations), all of which wanted to bring attention to their local offerings. A Topside Tap Tail "roadmap" may be found here — and here’s a list of the seven craft breweries/brewpubs involved:

Roswell: From The Earth Brewing CompanyGate City Brewing, and Variant Brewing Company

Alpharetta: Currahee Brewing Company and Jekyll Brewing 

Sandy Springs: Pontoon Brewing and Porter Pizza & Brewery
