Bubbles & Brews 3rd Year Highlighting Craft Brews

Bubbles & Brews is back for its third year to place the spotlight on Cobb County’s craft beverage industry.
Bubbles & Brews is a month-long celebration of Cobb County’s local craft beverage makers. During the entire month of March, craft beverage enthusiasts can travel along the Cobb Ale Trail to Cobb’s breweries, distilleries, and wineries to sample each location’s unique beverages. New in 2022, a free digital ‘BrewPass’ will guide visitors to each location where they can collect digital stamps and win sweet prizes from Cobb Travel & Tourism.
The breweries, distilleries, meaderies, and wineries will host special Bubbles & Brews events throughout the month that will feature fun activities and themed giveaways where guests can earn double stamps in their BrewPass. Visitors will also have the chance to vote online for their favorite best-sellers, special brews, and various other categories.
“The craft beverage industry in Cobb continues to thrive, with new locations opening each year,” said Holly Quinlan, President & CEO of Cobb Travel & Tourism. “Since beginning Bubbles & Brews in 2020, we have seen these small businesses adapt, change, grow, and make Cobb County a sweet spot for beverage enthusiasts. Not only are we highlighting these makers during the month of March, but also recognizing the role that they play as a year-round tourism asset in our community.”
