Arches Brewing opened in 2016 in Hapeville, GA. Arches describes their approach as a “focus on bringing the best of old-world tradition and modern brewing practices together to offer many traditional lagers, Euro-inspired ales, and creatively brewed small batch beers.” Realizing great beer starts with great water, the brewery places a particular emphasis on water chemistry to build water profiles similar to the region that a beer style may have originated from. That kind of attention to detail results in quality craft beers for the craft beer enthusiast.
