Garden Beer

Fountains aren’t the only thing flowing at the Garden.

Garden Beer, a series of exclusive brews crafted in collaboration with Atlanta brewery Wild Heaven Beer, features seasonal flavors and ingredients inspired by the Garden. Established in spring 2019, Garden Beer is developed with the expertise of Amanda Bennett, Atlanta Botanical Garden Vice President, Horticulture & Collections and Wild Heaven Beer Brewmaster Eric Johnson.

“It is truly an honor to collaborate with one of our favorite Atlanta attractions, and I can’t think of a better brewer for it than my partner Eric, who is a renowned horticulturist in his own right,” said Nick Purdy, President of Wild Heaven.

New seasons of Garden Beer are typically released three times each year using seasonal ingredients and are available for a limited time only.
