Athens Eats: The New Brew

Employees bustled around as they set up for the event that evening, making the industrial warehouse feel alive. The shiny brewing equipment gleamed and the wood-paneled bar seemed to welcome any visitor that was looking for a home, or perhaps just a brew.

Since the founding of the brewery in April 2014, the Creature Comforts family has worked to bring quality craft beer to Athens. According to Shannon Vinson, the company’s marketing manager, Creature Comforts is dedicated to quality in all aspects of their brand, aiming to be respectful and classy in the craft beer market.

Words by Blythe Coker. Photos by Austin Steele.

We got the chance to sit down and chat about art, inspiration, and tacos with Donni Smith, the Athens Taco Takedown art contest winner this week in anticipation for our event this Sunday. After much deliberation, our judges, Matt Blanks and Lawson Grice, announced Smith as the winner of the contest, “We chose this piece because it’s an electrified force of cosmic taco madness. We very much want to eat that space taco. We think it would taste like the future.”

Latino Fest 2

The fifth annual Athens’ LatinoFest will be taking place this Saturday, October 10th! The festival celebrates the Hispanic heritage of Athens’ Spanish-speaking immigrant community. This year, it is returning to the community that first housed it, Pinewood North Mobile Home Park, known colloquially as Pinewoods. Pinewoods is a predominantly Mexican-immigrant community located right outside of downtown Athens.

Conducted as part of the national Hispanic Heritage Month, LatinoFest is an opportunity to witness the cultural diversity that helps to enrich our community. This event invites the greater Athens community into one of our less-known neighborhoods to experience the rich culture that influences our city.

September Tuesday Takeovers

Downtown Athens Ga

Every Tuesday, we feature photos from some of our favorite local photographers in a series we call Tuesday Takeover. We like to think of it as a chance to everyday Athenians to tell the story of what Athens means (and looks like) through their eyes. These are our Tuesday Takeover photos from September.
