Currahee Brewing, Franklin

In this new #NCBeerBuzz, we stop in at one of the newest breweries in NC, the Currahee Brewing Company in Franklin. We talked to brewer Taylor Yates, formerly of Moon River Brewing and Burnt Hickory Brewery, about all the great plans they have for Currahee! Owner Brandon Hintz previously worked with SweetWater in Atlanta. The brewery takes its name from a Cherokee word meaning “stand alone,” and from a mountain in northeast Georgia. They will have their grand opening on Saturday, August 20th., with festivities starting at noon. Currahee is located at 100 Lakeside Drive, just off Main St and in behind the McDonalds, with frontage on the Little Tennessee River.
