Craft beer is having a moment. New breweries are popping up and new beers are being released every week, it seems. And we couldn’t be happier to celebrate this moment with a craft beer that was created to do just that. You see, up at Reformation Brewery in Woodstock, they have a pretty unique vision for their beers. These are beers that are meant to be shared, sipped, savored, and celebrated. Co-founders Spencer Nix and Nick Downs are elevating the beer drinking experience, turning every sip into a moment to be celebrated- whether the moment is a birthday or anniversary, or just a beautiful sunny Tuesday.
Years ago, Nick was an airline pilot who found uniquely tasty beers in Europe. When he and Spencer tried to find those same tastes here in America, they came up empty. So, like any beer-lovin’ red-blooded American, they decided to make their own. And now 15 years later, after home brewing and getting their friends together for tastings, they’re producing yeast-forward, crisp European-style beers from their own recipes- concoctions that are made to withstand the test of time. Reformation Brewery aims to “set beer free” from extremes. They look for balance in all things- including drinking beer. Yep, they preach moderation (pretty unexpected for a beer company, right?) and believe you should drink righteously excellent beer to celebrate, but it’s not about getting sloppy drunk.
So with this revolutionary attitude (dare we say reformed?) the brewery has to be a little different, right? Yes. It is- Reformation has the only HEBS in Georgia. That’s short for High Efficiency Brewing System. Any way we can get beer into our bellies more efficiently is welcome, but learning about this newfangled contraption is even more reason to celebrate. It cuts brewing time in half and uses fewer resources like grains and water, so it puts less of a strain on the environment. They also recycle their spent grains - farmers use them to feed their pigs and cattle.
