New Brewery and Restaurant, Fox City Brewing Company, to Open in Downtown Forsyth

Staff Report

Tuesday, June 30th, 2020

In 2020, Bob Zellner and George Emami teamed up with some passionate Forsyth natives, Justin Cox and John Ambrose, Jr., to create a place for neighbors to gather. Bob brewed his first batch of beer in 1972 and began attracting a dedicated following of craft beer enthusiasts. As the popularity of his beer grew, so did Bob’s dream of serving his beer to as many people as possible. George wanted to create a gathering place for people in Forsyth, and he recognized the uniting power of a local brewery. Both Bob and George longed to create a place for people to connect. With their talents combined, Fox City Brewing Company was born. It’s a casual, not-hurried experience that allows their purpose to shine – community, entertainment, and great beer. Bob and George will tell you that they wouldn’t have started this dream without each other, and that’s what we like to see at Fox City – connection. 

Located in the heart of Downtown Forsyth, Georgia, at 45 N. Kimbell Street, they’ve been preparing for the Grand Opening on July 4th for months. The Grand Opening event will be on Saturday, July 4th at Fox City Brewing Co. Doors will open at 2p.m. and will be closing at 10p.m. Swain and the Highway Souls will go on from 3-7p.m. VIP packages will also be available for purchase for an extra special experience. VIP tickets will include a Fox City Brewing Co. t-shirt, beer glass, and two draught beers, also including early entry at 1p.m. They’re available for purchase at for $40 per ticket. The event will be fun for the whole family and a great way to spend your Independence Day. 

In addition to the draught beer selection, there will be a full-service restaurant serving dishes from prime cut steaks to juicy hamburgers and kid-friendly options. Event space will be available for any gathering.
