Copper Creek is a great place to get a known rotations of good local brew. The rotation of beers is usually predictable, but that is a good thing. Four beers are usually on tap ranging from a light, blonde type beer to a dark, stout.

2 dollar drafts for happy hour!

Food is OK, nothing special about it, but usually hits the spot.

A great place to hang out for students and grown up types.

Copper Creek is currently the only brewpub in Athens that primarily focuses on their own beer. You can see the copper tanks, mash tun, and kettle through the window from the street. The brewing equipment is separated from the main restaurant by a wood and glass wall. The place is fairly small (but not particularly small for Athens' standards). There's a bar covered with copper pennies and a section of booths semi-separated from the bar.

They have 4 beers on tap all the time. There's usually a porter or stout, a "lighter" beer like an American Golden, Belgian Golden, or Cream Ale and two other beers that span a pretty broad range (IPA, Belgian Abbey, etc). Don't expect to find a lot of Double IPAs or big huge barleywines, because that's not the type of beers Matt Buley (the brewer) likes to brew. While his beers are not big, huge groundbreaking beers, they are usually pretty true to style. They also tap 1 or 2 firkins on the first Wednesday of every month at 6:00pm.

Food is usually pretty good. There are a few things I don't care much for, but overall it's pretty good.

I have gone here 2-3 times a month for several years and I have never had "bad" service. Almost always (except sometimes on cask nights) I have service that ranges from good to excellent. Even on cask nights, I almost never have an empty pint.

Simply put, prices are excellent. They have two happy hours where the beers are $2.25 each. The first one goes from 4-7pm (they open at 4 so don't expect lunch here) and the second one goes from 12-1am or 12-2am (I can't remember which). Even during the periods that aren't happy hour, the beers are only $3.25. Prices are always the same across the board and all beer is served in shaker pints - even Belgians. Also, the 4-beer 4oz sampler is the same price as a regular pint - so you can sample all the beers first and then settle on a pint and still spend less than $5 at happy hour!

Parking on the street can sometimes be tricky but there's pretty much always parking in the deck that's on the same block. As with all places in Athens, there is NO indoor smoking - period (according to local laws).

Overall, Copper Creek always gives me a reason to come back. It's definitely one of my favorite places to get a drink in Athens.
