Silver Bluff Brewing Company Head Brewer, Brodie Pierce, commented, “We are excited to share the podium with so many great breweries. Through their ability to not only brew classic beer styles but to push the boundaries of flavors and techniques, Georgia’s breweries have shown that the Peach State didn’t just come to play.”

Silver Bluff Co-founder, Kevin Coyle, added, “The U.S. Open Beer Championship shows that Georgia breweries are producing world-class beer.  We’re delighted that Mexican Lager was recognized along with so many amazing breweries from around the world.  We’re especially excited for Monday Night Garage Brewing’s second-place in the Grand National and our nearby Jacksonville, Florida neighbors, Main & Six, for their top-ten Grand National achievement.”

Silver Bluff’s Historic Preservation Efforts

Over the past year, we’ve had a lot of fun with the brewery’s design elements—light fixtures, wall accents, paint colors, everything.
