“Georgia is an amazing mix of large cities and rural areas, but it seems everyone there shares a love of craft beer. We’ve had so many Georgians visit our NC tasting rooms. They enjoy what we do and wish Catawba products were available in their home state,” Billy Pyatt, Catawba Owner and CEO
Additionally, the brewery is adding dedicated sales representatives in all five markets this year.
