Gold City Growlers

Craft Beer in Dahlonega

Dahlonega's best craft-beer destination has 20 taps of mostly Georgia suds but there's a catch: city ordinances only allow growler fill-ups to go, or tastings, which run $6 for four 2oz pours.

But all is not lost. Growlers in 32oz or 64oz sizes can be rented for $1 and a 32oz fill-up (two beers, basically) starts at $6 – so more or less the price of a single pint in many places. So tucking away in your hotel room with a growler and a partner or some friends isn't such a bad deal.
