Get the door, it's the liquor store!
The northbound starting point of the 2,000+ mile Appalachian Trail is famously located in Georgia, a deep-south gem known for... peaches, pecans and all-American hospitality. Folks still call their elders ma’am or sir, and you can pick up groceries at the Piggly Wiggly. Don’t be fooled by its old-school charms, however. Georgia is experiencing a cultural shift thanks to the young and trendy professionals flocking to the state’s top institutions and Fortune 500 companies (ever heard of Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines or the Home Depot?). Traditional agriculture is a major factor in the state’s economy, but the Peach State also makes the nation’s top 10 list for most black-owned and women-owned businesses. Alongside these inspiring trends and economic vibrancy, Georgians are embracing their local microbreweries. While Terrapin and Sweetwater are Georgia mainstays, Atlanta especially is experiencing a craft beer boom. Drizly is delivering beer, wine and spirits locally in and around Georgia’s major cities. Packing a bottle of bourbon for the six-month trek on the AT? Getting a cooler stocked for a camping trip on Tybee Island? Sipping a spiked sweet tea while reclined on the patio? Whatever your level of adventure, Drizly can oblige.
