fyi – GA’s Energy Cities at Work
2nd Quarter, 2016
In this issue, Pretoria Farms, LLC is bringing an 18,000 square foot microbrewery facility in downtown Albany, GA and along with it a great deal of excitement for a city eager to revitalize its city core. This project will put downtown Albany among a growing list of cities such as Athens, Columbus, Macon, and Savannah, who have embraced the growing trend of locating microbreweries as anchors for their downtown. “This project has the opportunity to transform our downtown; other restaurants and retail will likely follow,” explains Albany Mayor Dorothy Hubbard.
