One of my favorite things in this Alcohol-free space is discovering new and delightful offerings that are without alcohol. Today, I invite you to get to know Rightside Brewing and Owner and Founder Emree Woods. Since opening operations in January of 2020, Rightside Brewing and Emree have been on an incredible journey, sharing their NA beer at festivals, Atlanta’s first pop-up NA bar and throughout the South East. Rightside Brewing is a true labor of love for Emree and her team and her passion for her craft and her mission are evident in this interview. I enjoyed hearing about her inspiration for Rightside, the origin of the name, and how she is proud of the example she is setting for her two small children.
Back in 2017 while pregnant with her daughter, Emree recognized a need for non-alcoholic adult beverages. There was such a focus on everything she shouldn’t have, and aside from water and soda, there really weren’t any beverages she could order. That experience heightened her awareness of the limitations drinks can put on social situations.
She wants a beverage that creates social inclusion for people in any phase of life. Emree’s hope is that Rightside lets you socialize without sacrifice, removing any stigma or pressure.
I am so grateful to Emree for taking time out of her busy schedule to connect with us, AND offer our listeners a 10% discount through March – thanks Emree!!
