Best Places for Craft Beer in Gwinnett

Craft beer has officially become a trend. And it’s definitely one that we’re willing to get behind! Check out these restaurants and growler shops (BEERtiques if you will) that can offer you hard-to-find craft beers and brands that you’ve never heard of, but will likely want to have again and again.

What is a growler shop? For a deep history that could win you hundreds of dollars on Jeopardy check out the Beer Advocate website definition and history. For the elementary definition, I’d describe a growler shop as a heavenly place where you can stop in and buy craft beer in one of those moonshine jug thingy’s (hey, I said an elementary definition). You don’t consume beer there so it’s different than a bar. More like a beer store, hence the nickname, BEERtique.

Check out these Gwinnett restaurants for the best beers around:

Three Blind Mice is arguably one of Gwinnett’s best restaurants. Imagine a Krog Street Market restaurant feel in the middle of Gwinnett. They offer beer tastings each Sunday. 6 samples for $8.

-Taco Mac is an oldie but a goodie. Gwinnett has 3 locations to serve you. (Suwanee, Duluth, Mall of Georgia)

Rivals on Five in Lilburn offers craft beers in one of Gwinnett’s best sports bars. And they are also in the running for best patio in Gwinnett!

  1. Johnnys pizza in Grayson and also the sugarloaf location constantly has 22 rotating craft beers on tap.

  2. I agree with this except one GIANT ommission. Summits Wayside in Snellville is ground zero for beer selection.
