Beer buffs, rejoice.
Cobb County’s craft breweries and brewpubs got the green light Tuesday to make bank — at prices based on beer type — from brewery tours, and to use social media to promote those events and advertise craft pilsners, lagers and hops.

A timeline for the new regulations has not yet been announced, but the deal means a potential surge in brew-centered events across metro Atlanta.
