What is a Brewpub in Georgia?

Brew Pub License Bond is defined as an establishment that meets ALL of the following criteria:

  1. Production and Sales:
    • Produces its own malt beverages on-site: This implies having brewing equipment and facilities on the premises where the brewing process takes place.
    • Sells the malt beverages it produces directly to consumers on-site: This means the brew pub must have a restaurant or bar area where customers can purchase and consume the brewed beverages.
  1. Sales Restrictions:
    • Derives at least 50% of its gross sales from the sale of food: This signifies that the primary focus of the establishment is food service, with brewed beverages complementing the dining experience.
    • Sells no more than 50% of its malt beverages in sealed containers off-site: This restriction limits the amount of packaged beer the brew pub can sell for take-out or purchase outside the premises.
  1. License Type:
    • Holds a Georgia Brewpub License: This specific license type is different from other alcohol licenses like brewery or taproom licenses. Obtaining this license requires fulfilling all the above criteria and acquiring the $20,000 Georgia Brewpub License Bond.


  • The brew pub may also sell commercially produced malt beverages alongside its own brews, but these sales cannot count towards the 50% requirement based on food sales.
  • There might be additional local or county regulations that apply to brew pubs, so it’s crucial to check with the relevant authorities for full compliance.
