The Walking Dead is film in and around Atlanta, Georgia. Local beers like Terrapin, Jailhouse and SweetWater have made it into episodes. Geek out a little over this heady cameo. Fall beers are already here. Personally I wish The Walking Dead Season 4 already was… Full trailer below. This wasn’t the only time either…
It’s probably no secret that Beer Street Journal is based here in Atlanta, Georgia. We are one of the fastest growing beer markets in America. This week, Conan O’Brian is broadcasting from the ATL (trust me is all our friends have been talking about.) When Conan asked Steven Yeun (from The Walking Dead. Filmed here) what shouldn’t he miss, he said Clermont Lounge.
So why is this relevant? The Clermont Lounge is a favorite spot for out of town folks from breweries to go and deny ever being there later. Plus… Blondie does something magical with a beer can.
