Warnell Night at Southern Brewing Company

All are invited to join us following the tournament for a social at Southern Brewing Company. The brewery provides a fun family atmosphere with tons of yard games and everyone is welcome to attend.  Should you wish to sample the adult beverages on-site, $12 will provide you a Southern Brewing Company glass, facility tour, and six pours of your choosing, or you can purchase beverages by the pint or half pint.

Warnell will be joined by a group from Advancing Georgia's Leaders in Agriculture and Forestry (AGL), so it's a great chance to support Warnell's AGL participants and network with some of our alumni and friends from the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences!
