It was fun while it lasted

****** We have closed ******

Augusta, Georgia lost its brewery during prohibition, and thirsted for local beer for 95 years. That was a mighty long time for the citizens of The Garden City to not have their own brew. So the Dragonfly landed, and brought Augusta fantastic beer in April of 2016. Since then, Augusta has enjoyed great beer and good times at Riverwatch Brewery.

But all good things must come to an end, and we have closed. It’s been a great time, and we thank everyone for the support and friendship. We’ll have a “Yard Sale” on May 25th to clear out furniture, fixtures, and remaining merchandise (including packaged beer).

The Brewery


Unfortunately, after 8 years of operations, we have closed as of April 20, 2024. First COVID zinged us with news that the Farmers Market was closing, which meant we were going to have to move. Finding a place that could handle 21-foot high equipment was a challenge, so we sold the equipment and planned a new taproom venture. BUT, while Augusta is full of big buildings with the size we would need, it has a nearly non-existent inventory of buildings that don’t need millions of dollars worth of renovation/rehab to even be functional. With no place to move to, we’ve called it a day.

We’ll have a “Yard Sale” May 25th with our remaining packaged beer, merchandise, furniture etc. Please come say goodbye and grab some soon to be collector’s items merch while you have the chance!
