Scofflaw BrewingIf you’ve been to any restaurant lately in metro Atlanta, then chances are you’ve seen the double basement IPA from Scofflaw Brewing on the menu. Located on Atlanta’s westside, Scofflaw Brewing was the brainchild of Founder Matt and brewmaster Travis. It all started about five or six years in the basement of Matt’s mother’s home where he developed a fully operational laboratory and brewery that was used for about two years. During these years, Matt did extensive business planning and product development, so that when he did eventually come to market, he came with a viable model and product. Today, Scofflaw Brewing occupies an 38,000 square foot space and has an annual capacity of 45,000 barrels making it one of the fastest expansions in craft brewing history.
