How a Shared Love of Beer Led This Couple To Launch Their Own Business in Atlanta – Kristen and Ed Sumpter, Red’s Beer Garden

On today’s episode of The Atlanta Small Business Show we welcome Kristen and Ed Sumpter owners of Red’s Beer Garden which is nestled between Grant Park and East Atlanta. Red’s Beer Garden is the first of its kind in Benteen Park, Atlanta*.

Their self-serve refrigerators and draft taps boast more than 300 beers ranging from local brews to domestic classics. You simply choose your beverage of choose and enjoy it in their backyard garden complete with picnic tables and heaters for those cooler months. Not to mention their menu of snacks and gourmet hot dogs to keep you well feed while you day drink.
