UGA vs. Florida at Akademia   |   Saturday, Oct. 27

This weekend may be when many Georgia fans spend time at The Landing for the world’s largest cocktail party … but why drive a million hours when you could head just down the street to Athens’ own cocktail party at #AkademiaBC?! That’s right — this away game weekend will not only have Bulldogs on the big screen, but we’re blowing it out of the water with special food and drink options! Plus we’ll have a VERY limited number of commemorative pint glasses available for purchase.

ATLANTA: Beer and Botany   |   Sunday, Oct. 28

We love beer, and we love plants. It’s why we opened a beer garden serving Georgia beer with a big ol’ backyard! We’ll be hosting a small tap takeover and a Botany 101 class featuring Akademia Brewing Companybeer and knowledge from UGA Extension Fulton County! C’mon out and learn about plants, and maybe a little about beer too!

It’s the Dawgs’ last away game of the season, and we’re ready to pounce on those Wildcats!
Crowlers will be available to take with you if you’re going up to the game, and for those staying in town, we’ll have beer, food specials, cocktails and a rowdy crowd cheering on Big Red! We’ll also have a limited number of commemorative pint glasses available for purchase.
*** Please note that the Beer Hall is reserved during the game for the UGA Alumni Association‘s Away Game Viewing Party ***

UGA vs. UMass at Akademia   |   Saturday, Nov. 17

It’s Gameday, Bulldog fans! We were unaware that UMass had a football team, so this should be a fun one to watch.

Stop by the brewpub to pick up your tailgate crowlers (and may we suggest you order some wings to-go too?), and you know by now that if you don’t have a ticket to the game, you have a seat at #AkademiaBC. We’ll see y’all there!

UGA vs. Georgia Tech at Akademia   |   Saturday, Nov. 24

Zeus always told us that if we don’t have anything nice to say, we shouldn’t say anything at all, so this is the part where we just say that UGA plays Georgia Tech on Nov. 24 and y’all should come watch the beatdown — err, completely sportsmanlike game — with us on the big screens. 😉

Industry Appreciation Night   |   Sunday, Nov. 25

It’s our first industry appreciation night! Night Owls who work in the food and beverage industry will be treated to beer specials all evening. Please bring a copy of your most recent pay stub, most recent schedule or your business card to the hostess stand as proof of employment!

2nd Annual Repeal of Prohibition Celebration   |   Wednesday, Dec. 5
