Our Story

The idea to develop Line Creek Brewing Co. was really born out of a few local guys’ love of quality craft beer and the desire to see it brewed, served and distributed right here in our community.  Our founders are all long time local residents that are working, living and raising families in Fayette County. We want to develop a brewery that becomes not only a place to get a world class beer, but also a hub of community activity.

Focused on creating fresh and flavorful hand crafted beers, our team will strive to produce a lineup of beers that will appeal to everyone – from the most avid craft beer fan to the casual consumer. Melding traditional, time proven brewing processes with cutting edge techniques, our profound affection for the art of brewing will stand out in every pint.

The intention from inception has always been to serve the community, simply and naturally. Named after a popular nature area located right in our Brewery’s backyard, Line Creek Brewing Co. looks forward to providing customers with a laid back environment to enjoy some of life’s basic pleasures.

If you haven’t heard our story of how Line Creek Brewing came to fruition, there’s no better way to experience it than with Rutledge Wood, a Peachtree City local, a car fanatic, and a lover of Line Creek.
