We are equipped with a three vessel, 40 BBL brewhouse, 620 BBL  of fermentation space, and 320 BBLs of brite beer storage. We use a GEA centrifuge to clarify all of our beers. Red Hare, along with a handful of other craft breweries, is lucky to have a full time biochemist and full laboratory for quality assurance.

PACKAGING EQUIPMENT
We were the first craft brewery in Georgia to can our beer, and the world’s first to use the evercan- a high recycled content aluminum can. Our canning line features a 40 head filler and 6 head seamer that can package approximately 480 cases per hour (over 11,520 cans)! Our kegging line is able to process 50 BBLs of beer per day.

 

HISTORYimg_1288-768x1024.jpg

Roger Davis had semi-retired from the corporate world in 2009 when he decided to explore brewing. He contacted his buddy Bobby Thomas who jumped right in. Soon they started brewing their own beer right in Roger’s basement. They created a homemade brewing system from a 15-gallon brew pot, water coolers, various tools and hoses and started creating recipes.

After about a year and many positive reactions from their friends, they realized their little basement brewing outfit had larger potential. The Red Hare Brewing Company was born and a larger space was found to match their goals. Over the next few months Red Hare secured proper equipment and licensing. On Labor Day weekend, 2011, Red Hare Brewing opened its doors to the public for tours and tastings. Soon, Red Hare beer was only available at restaurants and pubs in Marietta, Decatur and Atlanta. Now you can find Red Hare throughout Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

Now, situated in an 15,000 sq. ft. warehouse, Red Hare Brewing Company has a 40 barrel, three vessel brewhouse. Making every day beer for beer fans everywhere, Red Hare’s flagship beer is Long Day Lager. Other year round Red Hare beers are Gangway IPA, Cotton Tail Pale Ale, and Watership Brown Ale. Red Hare also brews a line of seasonal beers, as will as a craft soda line!

Red Hare is the first craft brewery to offer beer in cans in Georgia and currently cans all of their year round and seasonal varieties. Red Hare is also the worlds first brewery to use the evercan- a can made out of guaranteed high content recycled aluminum. Learn more about the evercan here. Red Hare Brewing Company was named FOURTH best brewery in the 2016 U.S. Open Beer Championship, accepting FIVE medals! See which beers are medal winners here.
