Don't miss Creature Comforts Brewing Co. in Athens on the Brews & Q's Trail. The brewery
opened in spring 2014 and won the bronze medal in the American Style Brett Beer category

are guided, cover about 2 miles, last
three hours and are limited to small
groups. Many also offer private tours.
Usual attire includes comfortable
shoes and clothes. Here are a few
tours to consider.
In Marietta, Marietta Food Tours
offers two unique tours. On Saturdays, Marietta Square Food Tour
participants can enjoy culinary selections at seven establishments while
strolling through Glover Park and
Historic Marietta Square.
The Marietta Square Supper
Tour takes its guests on a Wednesday-evening journey of 12 food
tastings and five beverages at five restaurants around the square. Founded
by Brian and Cecilie Benefield, the
tours were inspired by the couple's
love for Marietta combined with their
own food-tour experiences in San
Francisco, Chicago and Nassau, Bahamas. Before the holidays, ticket
sales increase, Brian Benefield observes. "To give the gift of an experience is kind of neat and unique."
In Atlanta, Atlanta Food Walks
offers two tours. The Downtown
Southern Food Walk features 15
tastings of soul food, barbecue, low
country cuisine and Southern specialties from seven stops in Atlanta's
historic downtown neighborhoods.
Guides talk about Atlanta history and
the civil rights movement.
"The tour is really focused on two
things: the history of Southern food
30

and what I call classic Southern cuisine. We focus on the story of [Martin
Luther King Jr.] and tell the story of
the civil rights movement through the
lens of food," says Atlanta Food Walks
owner Akila McConnell.
Guests on Atlanta Food Walks'
Grant Park Past & Future Food
Walk can experience the future of
Southern cuisine while exploring one
of Atlanta's oldest neighborhoods.
The tour includes 12 modern and
Southern fusion tastings from local
food stops and a stroll through historic Oakland Cemetery.
In South Georgia, the Taste of
Thomasville Food Tour and Taste
of Thomasville AfterHours, both in
Thomasville, offer unique samplings
at several one-of-a-kind eateries.
Guests take a leisurely walk through
the historic downtown while tour
guides share interesting facts about
Thomasville's history.
In Savannah, Savannah Taste
Experience offers two tours. On the
First Squares Food Tour guests can
sample foods from six eateries surrounding the initial squares built in
Savannah while learning about the
town's history from a local guide. The
Famous & Secret East Side Food
Tour takes its participants on an
off-the-beaten-path stroll through a
residential area of Savannah's historic
district, where they visit secret spots
that would surprise some locals. The
tour is not for the light snacker, so
come hungry.
