    Word on the street is that a new brewery is being planned in an old automobile tire warehouse in downtown Athens, just about a block from Trappeze. Word is further that David Stein, head brewer from Twains in Decatur, GA, will be making the move 50 miles east to head this one up. Best of luck to these guys!!

    It's called Creature Comforts and last I heard was a spring opening.
