Thank you to Enjoy Cherokee for this feature article about Reformation’s CEO, Spencer Nix and our 10th Anniversary this October! It’s an honor to serve our community alongside neighbors who care deeply about small business in Cherokee County.
Excerpt: “Undoubtedly there is something for everyone to love at Reformation, but this article goes deeper. It’s about how ten years ago, a Cherokee County man, his wife, and his friends followed a crazy dream and made something inviting where the whole community could come together.”
“You would have to look hard in Cherokee County to find someone who hasn’t had an experience with one of Reformation’s taprooms; they are cornerstones of the communities they serve. From community group meet-ups—including Reformation Books & Brews book club and MilVet Community veterans’ group—to live music, pop-up markets, silent discos, Galentine’s celebrations, trivia nights, yoga workshops, tailgate parties, fundraisers, and more, Reformation’s events draw in community members of all ages, interests, and backgrounds to meet and get to know each other.”
All credit goes to our fabulous hardworking crew and you our loyal raving fans. We could not have come this far or kept going strong without all of the love and good vibes from our hometown community.
And, we could not think of a better way to celebrate the lead-up to Fall and the eve of our 10th anniversary this October 31st (along with our Cadence Fair 10/14).
Thank you, Woodstock, Canton, and all of our Cherokee County friends!
Cheers to many more moments together. 🍻 🥂
The circa-1900 Canton Cotton Mill, a former denim factory along the Etowah River’s winding banks near downtown, has been adapted into a shopping, dining, coworking, and day-drinking hangout. Laidback vibes emanate from Reformation Brewery’s massive space, across a gameday-ready green with a mega TV, to shops that run the gamut from trendy boutiques to antique Americana and a growing roster of eats. (Recommended: any chef-crafted sandwich from Community Burger, paired with scrumptious tater tots). Canton
ATLANTA, GA – May 2, 2022 – 97.1 The River (WSRV-FM/Atlanta) has partnered with Reformation Brewery to create a new Pilsner beer just in time for summer, and available year-round. A Cold One is a light, crisp and easy pilsner, brewed with classic noble hops.
A Cold One is on tap now at Reformation Brewery’s three locations in Woodstock, Canton and Smyrna. Beginning May 27, A Cold One will be available for purchase in six-packs at Reformation Brewery locations, and everywhere Reformation Brewery beer is sold across their Georgia distribution footprint. Ask your favorite package store, bar, or restaurant for A Cold One.
“There are two things that go great together in the Atlanta summer heat: 97.1 The River and beer! The gang at Reformation Brewery did an awesome job coming up with a beer that I know our listeners will love,” says Chris Eagan, senior director of operations at Cox Media Group.
“In so many ways, beer can be a common connector for great moments and great conversations in life. And we think a clean classic lager can do that better than just about any other beer. We’re proud to partner with 97.1 the River in order to bring this experience to you in draft and cans at our taprooms and in the Georgia market, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!,” says Reformation Brewery’s CEO and Co-Founder Spencer Nix.
Join us for the A Cold One launch party, hosted by 97.1 The River and kick off Memorial Day weekend, on Friday, May 27 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Reformation Brewery at 105 Elm St in Woodstock, GA. The event will give listeners and beer-lovers the chance to taste and take home A Cold One, meet 97.1 The River talent, win prizes and more.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Reformation Brewery Releases Self-Titled IPA Year-round offering hits market/taprooms late February
ATLANTA, GA (Feb. 21, 2022) – Georgia based Reformation Brewery is pleased to announce the release of self-titled, Reformation IPA. The beer is a new year-round offering in the brewery’s portfolio and takes the place of their rotating seasonal, Nolan The Wanderer.
An unfiltered American style IPA (6.5%) featuring Talus, Citra, & Mosaic for notes of grapefruit & pineapple, Reformation IPA is now available for pre-order across the brewery’s state-wide Georgia distribution footprint, and debuts in the brewery’s taprooms this Friday, Feb. 25th.
“We fell in love with the Talus hop, which gives this beer an intense citrus aroma and ripe notes of grapefruit and pineapple. We also love the little bit of pine resin that balances out all those fruit forward notes. As we searched for this hop, we built a great relationship with the people at Hop Head Farms (in Southwest Michigan) who supply our contract of this unique and robust hop,” said Ryan Morley-Stockton, Business Operations Director.
Reformation IPA replaces Nolan The Wanderer, which held the year-round IPA slot for Reformation since 2018. “Reformation has wandered through new styles of IPA’s and different varieties of hops with our rotating IPA series, and learned so much from that journey. We’ve also brewed countless IPA test batches at our R&D facility in Woodstock in search of a liquid that is both balanced and timeless – yet uniquely Reformation. Reformation IPA is fueled by feedback from our community and is a beer they can truly call their own,” Stockton added.
CEO & Cofounder, Spencer Nix, says the beer represents the heart and soul of the brewery. “Inspired by the natural beauty of the people and places in Reformation’s communities, years of research, development, and crafting are behind this beer. Our heart and soul are in this self-titled IPA for new and old craft IPA drinkers. It’s our gift to IPA and beer drinkers from the lowlands to the highlands of Georgia. Unfiltered, balanced, reliable – Reformation IPA.”
For pre-order with brewery pickup customers can visit reformationstore.com, and sign up for rewards and stock alerts via the brewery’s loyalty program. Retailers can order through Atlanta Beverage Company, or Eagle Rocks Distributing.

Preservation Woodstock named Reformation Brewery CEO Spencer Nix the Barbara G. Ingram Citizen of the Year. This award is presented annually to a Woodstock area resident who has made notable contributions toward the preservation of the citys heritage. As part of this honor, Nix will serve as the grand marshal for the City of Woodstocks Christmas Jubilee Parade.
Preservation Woodstock member Steve Campbell nominated Nix in recognition of his role in restoring a historic building in downtown Woodstock
With so many old buildings and structures being demolished for new development, it is important that we recognize those who save old structures and renovate them for further use, said Campbell. Spencer Nix is being recognized as our Citizen of the Year for his efforts for saving the old Priest Home Furnishings warehouse to be utilized as a facility and meeting place for Reformation Brewery.
Nix believes that preserving Woodstocks history is important.History is our story; an epic, a tragedy, a comedy, a quest, and a continual rebirth. Preserving our history gives our community its unique character and links us to the roots of the community and its people, adding to the quality of life.
“JOGR, Reformation’s summer seasonal is billed as “the juicy lager.” And now is now available in cans for the first time. It’s dry-hopped with Loral and Citra hops. The result is a pale, bubbly beer with a feast of citrus aromas and flavors, a soft mouthful, and a lingering grapefruit note in the dry finish. At just 4.9% alcohol, it’s a super summer sipper.”
Cheers to barrel-aged Jude, named a Top Wood-Aged Beer of 2017 by Beer Connoisseur. Check out their expert review below, or click the link to read more about this top honor.
“American oak wafts out of the glass and dominates the aroma. Vanilla, charred oak, and mellow bourbon comprise the barrel profile with an underlying presence of bready malt. No yeast aromatics are present. There is a bit of alcohol in the aroma as the beer warms but is well tempered by the explosive oak barrel presence. This an attractive beer – bright gold with exceptional clarity and a medium sized white frothy head that stands its ground.”
Brewed as part of Reformation’s year-round portfolio of Belgian-style ales, Jude is billed as a “modern” take on the classic derived from the Trappist monastery at Westmalle.
It pours a hazy gold with a soft white head, and at 9.2-percent alcohol it’s dangerously easy to drink. Floral aromas and fruity and herbal notes mix with a sweetish malt flavor and a distinctive Belgian yeast character from esters and phenols that bring out hints of clove and banana.
