Annually, May 22 is recognized as National Craft Distillery Day. This national day aims to raise awareness of craft distilleries that produce spirits in small batches – rather than big brand names. Local distilleries in Augusta continue to grow in popularity.

Apart of celebrating National Craft Distillery Day is having a glass of handcrafted spirits locally. But that’s only if you’re over the age of 21! The cool part about being local to Augusta, is there are a couple of distilleries in the area.

Here is a list of distilleries and breweries in the CSRA.

  • 2nd City Distilling Co.

    This is Augusta’s first distillery. There’s tours, tastings, and homegrown libations! They also have a second location in Edgefield, SC called Carolina Moon Distillery .

    They even host Goat Yoga!

  • Carolina Moon Distillery
