Back and better than ever!

The region’s funkiest mobile unit, Swift & Finch’s eclectic van, is back in service after a little repair work. It recently was back at the Between the Rivers Farmers Market and currently is on location at 600 Broad St., home of the coffee shop. Recently posted on Swift & Finch’s Facebook page:

“After a very frustrating accident in Atlanta and months of repairs, this chica is back in business! Come welcome her back with us …”

More beer news: Rome City Brewing to start distribution in Alabama. This update from Jay Shell’s Facebook page:

“Proud to announce that Rome City Brewing Co has signed a deal with Alabev and will soon start distribution here in the great state of Alabama! Of course, we’ll be starting in north Alabama and I’m super excited to get our #LocalBeer back home to my family and friends. I don’t have the words to thank Alabev enough for taking a chance on our little downtown Rome, Ga., brewery.”


Speaking of beer (Oktoberfest), get the latest updates on Northwest Georgia’s second craft brewery on Thursday. Our next Druck Report podcast is on Drowned Valley Brewing Co. due to open at 4 Tennessee St. in Cartersville next month. Dean Kimberly, the owner and head of business operations, and JD Dean, owner and head brewer, joined us at Brand Red Studios for around 30 minutes of background and updates on what’s about to happen there.

Kimberly and Dean have worked a bit with Rome City Brewing Co. partners Jay Shell and Dr. Trent Prault and even bought RCBC’s original brewing system as the Rome brewer expanded into larger quarters at 333 Broad St. Dean and Kimberly give repeated shoutouts to RCBC for mentoring them as they prepare to open their brewery and tap room.
We’ll post the podcast Thursday morning (available on your favorite podcast providers later this evening).
