The Beginning.

For Brian Whitley and Richie Jones, it started with a passion for handcrafted beer, honest food, good times and the culture that makes Georgia such a great place to live.

As the craft brewing industry in Georgia exploded in 2014, so did their dream of opening a place that displayed their passion for craft beer and food artisanship.

They envisioned a place where anyone and everyone could celebrate their love of great food and drink, and a place where everyone was family.

The Beer.

With a focus on quality over quantity, Piedmont Brewery & Kitchen endeavors to be middle Georgia’s finest brewpub.

As a brewpub, our goal is to focus on beers that are brewed with the finest and freshest ingredients available. We will strive to brew beers with perfect balance. Every batch of our beer will utilize ingredients that play off of one another’s characteristics – such as the sweetness of malt and bitterness of hops or a complex melding of esters and spicy phenols of different yeast strains. The artistry of what we do is achieving this perfect balance while at the same time allowing the subtle characteristics of each element to be present without diminishing other traits in the beer.

Our goal at Piedmont Brewery & Kitchen is to produce a wide variety of beer styles, around 20 unique offerings each year. Our offerings will include IPAs, pale ales, blonde ales, wheat beers, ambers, browns, porters, stouts, one-off cask conditioned beers as well as barrel-aged beers. Maybe even a lager or two.

The beer industry is a community, and we are proud to be a part of it.

The Food.

Piedmont Brewery & Kitchen is a nearly 100% scratch kitchen that prides itself on purchasing high quality ingredients. We are happy to cook honest food that is cutting edge without being pretentious. While we are not a BBQ joint, we do love smoking meats for many of our one-of-a-kind dishes. Our menu is small yet well-planned, offering our patrons unique and flavorful meals. Our goal is to always offer daily specials and off menu treats to keep things exciting.

From appetizers to small plates to entrees to deserts, we are absolutely positive that you will find something on our menu to perfectly pair with a pint of one of our handcrafted beers.

We realize that Middle Georgia has a lot of excellent dining choices so it is our goal to be your #1 choice each and every time.

The Place.

Our brewpub is located in downtown Macon Georgia, occupying the first floor and basement level of the historic Silver’s 5-10¢ and $1 Store in the 1920s. Silver’s opened its doors for business in 1927. Nearly 90 years later it has been transformed into luxury lofts and Macon’s finest brewpub, Piedmont Brewery & Kitchen. We are proud to be a part of an historical building reclamation project in downtown Macon!

The first floor will feature our dining room which features elements of urban–industrial design.

The basement will house our 5 barrel brewery as well as Middle Georgia’s largest urban arcade. Our arcade features classics like skeeball, pinball, foosball, darts, Golden Tee and classic arcade games from the 1970s and 1980s.

We pride ourselves on being a family-friendly place where the young and young-at-heart can relax and have a great time with their friends and family.

The People.

In the end it is all about the people. We have a great passion for every single face that walks through our doors. From our patrons, to our employees, to our suppliers and vendors, no single aspect can exist without the other. They are all family to us.
Our philosophy is that if you create an environment where passion and hard work is nourished and encouraged, success will follow. We take great pride in having employees that believe in what we do, and desire to bring our patrons an experience filled with knowledge and brand loyalty.

We have an ever growing family and we invite you to join it!
