2nd Annual Beerganza: Thursday, April 20, 4 PM, $10. Southern Brewing Company is one of the younger breweries in Athens, but they have already gained a reputation for some great brews! Brian Roth, one of the founders, taught an OLLI class on the history of beers. So a tour of the brewery with Brian is always wonderfully informative. In addition to the opportunity of sample half a dozen different beers, the OLLI Hospitality Committee will provide light snacks. This brewery, set back from the highway, also has picnic tables and games to enjoy. Bring a lawn chair if you like and come hang out for a bit! Register Now
