Two New Breweries Open in Roswell

By | News | No Comments

Roswell is thrilled to be home to two new microbreweries! Both From the Earth Brewing Company and Variant Brewing Company celebrated their grand openings this past weekend, November 3 – 5. We are proud to have had a significant role in the creation of the microbrew industry here in Roswell several years ago and are excited to continue cultivating this business community in the coming years.

From the Earth Brewing Company

From the Earth Brewery

Founded by Tim and Lisa Stevens, From the Earth Brewing Company is a brewpub with a specialized focus on a chef-driven and farm-to-table menu, craft beer options, and social gatherings. In addition to featuring a full menu and four of its own unique brews, From the Earth also serves a selection of other local and seasonal beers, a variety of cocktails, and wine. From the Earth is located on Holcomb Bridge Road in the Connexion Plaza east of GA-400.

Variant Brewing Company

Variant Brewing

Founded by Matt Curling, Variant Brewing Company features a variety of seasonal and year-round beers in addition to a selection of “variant” brews, which derive their name from Merriam-Webster, which defines “variant” as something varying slightly from the standard form. These beers are thus specific variations of other brew offerings combined with unique ingredients such as toasted coconut, coffee, pineapple, or citrus flavors. Variant is located on Norcross Street behind Roswell City Hall and a short walk from Canton Street.

Small Business Saturday is November 25

small business saturdaySmall Business Saturday is November 25, and we encourage everyone to shop small by shopping locally this holiday season. In Roswell, small businesses make up approximately 75% of our economy, so supporting them is an integral part of ensuring our city’s economic sustainability.

While buying local might seem unnecessary, it fosters diversity among companies by creating a balance between well-known versus local brands. Shopping local is recognized in different capacities and can be accomplished by everything from gifting your loved ones a dining experience at one of our restaurants to picking up unique gifts from a small, locally operated store. During the busy holiday season, shopping locally also allows the luxury of skipping long mall lines!
