Good Word Brewing and Public House

3085 Main St, Suite 520, Duluth, GA 30096 View Map

Good Word Brewing and Public house is the delicious result of the thoughtfully entwined visions of owner-brewer Todd DiMatteo and executive chef Brian Crain. 

While DiMatteo crafts the beer, he also keeps a watchful eye on the kitchen, where the spirit of his Puerto Rican grandmother resides like a guardian angel. Start with a glass of You Do You, I’ll Do Me — an easy-drinking table beer — and a dish of corn fritters. Served over swirls of Duke’s mayo and topped with cotija and cilantro, the hush pups are a delicious commingling of DiMatteo’s American South-meets-Latin American philosophy.

Any second plate — say, roast chicken, braised beef with winter veggies or a classic cheeseburger — will provide a fine excuse for moving on to the heady The Universe Says, a juicy green IPA with a noticeable kick. Should you choose to end on a sweet note, Tres Leches Butter Cake is a winner: Inside a little cazuela are two sweet slices of light-as-a-feather cake; a scoop of velvety, condensed-milk-based ice cream; cinnamon-and-brown-sugar churro crumbles; and a puddle of burnt-cinnamon creme anglaise. Gimme that spoon! No doubt DiMatteo’s grandmother, Maria Esther Pena, would approve.
