An Insider’s Guide to Coweta County’s Best Local Libations — From Coffee to Cocktails

Explore Coweta County's Best Local Libations

From Coffee to Cocktails

Whether you pine for a craft cocktail, local beer, or an inspired non-alcoholic tipple, the offerings across Coweta County will satisfy your thirst and sense of adventure.

And, more is on tap, literally, as Coweta has opened several new breweries in 2023. From Georgia Peach snoballs and espresso-infused protein drinks to smoked cocktails and fine wine, Coweta delivers on liquid inspiration.

Decadent Drinks

The snoball, one of the south’s most luscious refreshers, is always a good bet for the ultimate thirst-quencher. Visit Beez Freeze in the heart of downtown Senoia for an authentic Georgia Peach Snoball or opt for a handmade milkshake.

They also have a play area with sandbox and several free games, making it a prime spot for young families. You’ll also find shaved ice offerings at Pelican’s SnoBalls and WowSno in and Newnan.

Get Your Caffeine Fix

If caffeine is on your mind, you’ll find it in all its glorious forms at Coweta’s Leaf & Bean. Coffee, tea, and espresso selections are top notch, but be sure to look for seasonally inspired refreshments such as their from-scratch lavender lemonade.

Heirloom Bakeshop (in downtown Newnan) also delivers on serious caffeine concoctions such as the Heirloom Enforcer—a blend of espresso and protein drink.

Grab a Bite

The wine, beer, and craft cocktail scene is alive and well across Coweta County. Restaurants such as Knife & Stone, Newnan’s upscale dining gem, deliver clever twists on the classics—case in point, their popular Smoked Old Fashioned.

Wine lovers should visit Grayson’s Steak & Seafood, which boasts a compelling wine list with a global menu of options. Shop for a cookout with friends at Ace Growlers where, in addition to offering beer by the pint or growler, they butcher their own meats and sell a nice selection of wine, cheese, and seafood.

Breweries Abound

Abide Brewery is the county’s first microbrewery. On weekends they offer the full experience with a rotating selection of food trucks and live music. Enjoy local brews such as 7 Day Haze or a Cherry Lime Hibiscus Seltzer at one of Senoia’s newest breweries, Senoia Beer Company.

Pearl & Pine Brewery also opened in the summer of 2023 in Senoia. Inspired by the famous “tank rooms” of Europe, none of the beers will be stored in kegs, and guests can enjoy a range of selections including IPAs, Mexican lagers, and Belgian-style witbiers.

Top Tipples

Georgia Peach Palmer at Nic & Norman’s: A future classic made with vodka infused with fresh peaches, sweet tea, lemonade, and a dash of Peach Schnapps.

mimosa or Bloody Mary at Senoia Farmer’s Market: Grab and go with one of these for a refreshing start to any weekend.
