Hop City

Kraig moved to Atlanta back when things were still taking shape… in fact, many aspects of food, good beer, the Beltline… and generally Atlanta as we know it today was the distant future. He opened Hop City a little over 10 years ago to offer a place for Atlantans to fill a growler, pick up all the gear needed for home brewing, a few bottles of wine, and more.

Since that first location on the Westside, they’ve expanded the stores across the city and into Birmingham, AL. The other side of Kraig’s story you’ll love is that he found his way into opening restaurants through his love, and the need, of good beer.


Recorded at Hop City on the Westside. Did we drink beer? No, it was lunchtime on a weekday. Is that an excuse? Probably not.
