Brewery · Hidden Gem · Food & Drink
Creature Comforts Brewing Co. is a craft brewery founded in April 2014 by David Stein, Adam Beauchamp, Derek Imes, and Chris Herron in Athens, Georgia. They have become popular for their four core beer brands—most notably their Tropicália IPA—as well as variety of seasonal and speciality releases.
The brewery is located in a former Snow's Tires shop. Memorabilia, include the large outdoor signage and another sign advertising Michelin tires, still remain. Keeping the integrity of the building's character while renovating it into a brewery earned the founders a preservation award from the Athens Heritage Foundation in 2014. In 2018, Creature Comforts expanded their production into a second building in the Southern Mill historic complex, adding 50,000 barrels to meet growing demand for their beer. It has plans to open a taproom and production facility in the Los Angeles Fashion District in Summer 2021.
Beyond beer, Creature Comforts is involved in community outreach, most notably through its Get Comfortable program, founded in 2014, which provides grants to local organizations assisting those experiencing poverty or homelessness. The initiative won the Champion Award from goBeyondProfit, a Georgia business leader alliance focused on community engagement.
