Macon’s First Brewpub Announced
The Kressin family who own and operate Just Tap’d have announced a new business they will be adding to downtown Macon. Middle Georgia’s first brewpub; Ocmulgee Brewpub “Where the Water Boils Up!” is now under construction at 484 Second Street.
For thousands of years the Ocmulgee River has been the lifeblood of this area, and at the heart of Macon’s economic and ecological systems. Jeff Kressin, owner, believes that the artistry and craftsmanship used in brewing their beers allows them to bottle a sense of adventure and creativity – pardon the pun – so that others can enjoy the labors of their hard work and the joys of fermentation. “We believe the best of Macon will “boil up” around our tables & taps, much like the great societies and cultures that weave a vibrant fabric of history and civilization throughout Macon’s past, present & future,” he said.
Ocmulgee Brewpub embodies a return to an era of community where food was sourced naturally, conversation served as a civic foundation, Macon citizens were explorers seeking new frontiers, and most importantly, where people enjoyed well-crafted fermented beverages!
In addition to serving excellent beer and food, Ocmulgee Brewpub will have an intentional focus on highlighting the active lifestyle and environment surrounding the Ocmulgee River, whether that be by biking the Heritage Trail, hiking at the National Monument, or floating the Ox Bow at Amerson River Park. It’s time that Macon went back to the source of our adventure. Business or pleasure; it doesn’t get any better than craft beer, good food, the Ocmulgee River and great people. An opening date will be announced soon.
