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 harvested from the Garden. Established in spring 2019, Garden Beer was developed with the expertise of Jason Paolini, executive chef of the Garden’s Longleaf restaurant; 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.

Garden Beer is now in its second “season,” with a third to be tapped in concert with Garden Lights, Holiday Nights.
