Hope Springs Distillery

4839 Railroad Ave NW, Lilburn, GA 30047 View Map

Paul Allen and Betsey Dahlberg grew up in small towns, in family businesses. Paul’s father had an auto shop in rural Upstate New York, and Betsey’s home was the Hope Springs Farm in Stone Mountain, Georgia. After many years of working for other people, their hearts still raced with the entrepreneurial spirit.

When the world thought they should retire, they shook their heads and said, “Not this year.” After twenty years of brewing beer, wine, and mead, it was natural to move into distillation.

Jaz Jarzewiak served in restaurants around Atlanta with a focus on culinary and beverage excellence. After falling in love with the production of spirits, he decided to start creating them himself. This pushed him to come to Hope Springs Distillery.

Anyone who wants to see how wheat, water, enzymes and yeast are turned into neutral grain spirits can now tour the room at Hope Springs where that happens. Stop by to let Dahlberg give you a sample, serve up a cocktail, teach you how to make a drink with their products and then buy some Top Hat Vodka, Jetty Green Absinth, Garner Creek Gin and other products which are made by friends of Hope Springs’ owners to take home.
