The WPSL’s 2024 Season Kickoff and Jersey Release Party brought the energy and excitement! The party brought an exclusive jersey reveal, special remarks from key partners including Canton Mayor, Bill Grant, and a live podcast session with Georgia Impact coaches.

We’re so grateful for the way this community organization and its collaborative partners have come together to create a local impact beyond women’s soccer that offers much more than a club. Reformation is honored and privileged to join this collective of local partners.

Enjoy this photo roundup of the moment.

On St. Patty’s Day weekend, our Letterman Club members descended on our green backyard with a sea of red Reformation energy! Over 41 of our members, including their +1s, joined us for a member-led march to kick off our 2024 Shamrock Pub Crawl and walk downtown Woodstock to support our local merchants together. We had the privilege of welcoming our first-year members by robing them with their club jackets. Then, we raised our mugs, geared up, and with flagman in the lead, marched from eatery to eatery proudly showing our support for downtown Woodstock and its many local restaurants and bars.

We hope you’ll stay up to date with our Letterman Club this year and stay tuned for details on 2025 membership opening up in October. Discover all the benefits of belonging to this growing community of fans, friends, and reformers. 🍻🔴 Click here to learn more.

North Georgia Made Makers – stories of makers from North Georgia (full video story below).

At Reformation, we are proudly North Georgia Made — located at the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains with three taprooms uniquely positioned to give our guests memorable outdoor experiences along trails and rivers.

As makers ourselves, we know both the challenges and pleasures of making handcrafted products high in quality and value for our loyal fans. North Georgia comprises a variety of hardworking and dedicated artists and makers who love their craft and love sharing it with their local community. As we prepare to enter Fall and our 10th-anniversary season, we could not think of a better way to tell the story of being North Georgia Made than highlighting the makers in our community and sharing their inspiring stories.

Nate, working on making a leather passport holder at his shop at the Mill on Etowah in Canton.

In this first pilot episode, we chose to feature one of our local vendors and handmade leather craftsman, Nate Bridges of Alpine Leather & Supply, Co. Nate’s story of taking the entrepreneurial leap in college, discovering a love for leather on a trip to Nashville, and overcoming challenges will leave you inspired and ready to engage the maker in you.

Nate’s shop is located at The Mill on Etowah in Canton, just a few steps from our taproom and main production facility. We hope you enjoy this story and it spurs you to not only support your local community of makers but get busy making something too. Cheers to the reformers and makers in all of us!

It was an honor to support this year’s 2023 Crafted For Action Con in Atlanta with a collaboration brew, One Love – a sorrel inspired saison, of which 100% of the proceeds were donated in support.

This February, join us in drinking One Love – a Sorrel Inspired Saison with Honey, Hibiscus, and spent Gin Botanicals. While supplies last, all proceeds go to Crafted For Action. Learn more at craftedforaction.com

Join us in Smyrna, Feb. 3rd from 7-9pm for the Launch Party and meet our collaborator, Jennifer Price, founder and creator of Crafted For Action.

What is Sorrel?

Sorrel or “sorrel drink” is popular Caribbean beverage and is made of hibiscus flowers and various spices. According to Atlanta chef Briana Riddock, Sorrel is “a prized ingredient in the foodways of the African diaspora, where it lends a red hue to celebratory drinks.” In America, it is used to commemorate Juneteenth; the color is symbolic of the blood shed by enslaved Africans and the collective resiliency of Black people. (Source)

We named it “One Love” not only because of the obvious ties to Jamaica and the Caribbean, but because of beer’s undeniable power to unite communities.

As Bob Marley and the Wailers sang, 

One love, one heart
Let’s get together and feel all right

We hope you’ll come out to support!
All proceeds benefit the Crafted for Action Conference.

This year Reformation Brewery is raising funds for one of our own, Alex Brown. To know Alex is to love Alex and he’s one of Reformation’s most devoted and caring part-time servers. On Dec. 5th Alex experienced a severe arm fracture which limited his ability to work during the holiday season.

A giving pail will be placed at all Reformation venues, all cash donations and $2 from every pour of Alex’s Ale will be given directly to Alex to help bring a little peace and hope this Christmas. Thank you for your support! $2 of Every Pour of Alex’s Ale
