Before planting roots down in one place, Sara and Sam Kazmer decided to pack everything in storage and spend time traveling country to country. Their journey to opening Elsewhere Brewing in Grant Park in Atlanta begins in Washington state. But then they traveled around the US, then through central and South America and then through Europe, spending significant time in every location. This is their story.

Sara & Sam are the pair behind Elsewhere Brewing in Grant Park, which they opened October 2020 after traveling the world to pursue beer.
Elsewhere’s taproom in Grant Park brings together favorite cultural components surrounding beer. Taking inspiration from beer gardens in Bavaria, pubs in Yorkshire, cafes in Brussels, drinking halls in Prague, and mezcalerias in Oaxaca, the Elsewhere team designed a space that will take you from the daily grind and transport you to a place where the beer is crisp, the food is delicious, and the service is always warm.
