How it all started

In the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains, near the waters of Lake Lanier, NoFo Brew Co put down its roots in September of 2019. Affectionately named NoFo after North Forsyth, our name is a nod to where we established our original location as Forsyth County’s first official craft brewery and distillery.

As our roots extended, so did our brewery with new locations around North Georgia.

NoFo was founded by Joe Garcia, Shannon Miles and Bryan Miles - three friends with a passion for craft beer, craft spirits and a perpetual craving for adventure.

Today, we’re focused on providing an upscale, family-friendly environment centered around great craft beer, hand-crafted cocktails and amazing hospitality to communities we adore.
