Welcome to Georgia! Here’s Your Beer!

According to Christopher Myers “Crazy Facts About The History Beer,” People were sent to Georgia to work off their debts and often stayed on and settled afterward. Originally there was an alcohol ban, so not only were you working hard to pay off your debts, but there was no cold one at the end of a hard day. HORROR!
