Our Story

Welcome, Night Owls, to Akademia Brewing Company.

Our full-service restaurant and brewery — a brewpub — launched in the Classic City of Athens, Georgia, in October 2017, to give craft beer fans a place to eat, drink and call home. We are dedicated to the mission of crafting distinct and consistent ales with unique twists that provide balanced and enjoyable flavor profiles and tantalize your taste buds. And because no beer is complete without a side of food, at Akademia, you can rest assured that you’ll leave with a belly full of pub fare inspired by seasonal ingredients.

Beer at Akademia is something yet to be explored in Athens. We have a core set of brews that will be on tap year-round, beers that come out to play at night and more for special occasions. Our hope is that we give you something new to try — an extra special bitter, perhaps, or rum barrel-aged stout — in addition to beer styles you know and love, like the IPA, the gose and kolsch. Thanks to an upgrade in Georgia’s beer laws, you can even take your favorites home with you after supper.

The menu is home to food from and inspired by countries known for their beer, plus a good dash of Greek cuisine to pay homage to the cities that gave Athens its nickname and us ours. We specialize in bringing you not only delicious food that pairs well with beer but delicious food made with our beer. Whether it’s our ale sauces, beer-braised pork chop or beeramisu made with chocolate stout, we aim to craft an experience you’ll want to come back for every day.
