3. Fall Line Brewing Company
Fall Line Brewery is tackling the beverage side of things with a new line of Pumpkin Ale, called 'Sweater Weather'. They say you can "sip on the flavors of fall" while you relax outside.

5. Grow Fresh Local Food
Grow is debuting an entirely new menu for the fall season!
Some of the items include a fall sampler with Georgia-made smoked sausage, cranberry pecan pimento cheese, house-made applesauce, pumpkin bread, honey butter, and house pickles.

6. Reboot Retrocade and Bar
Reboot Retrocade is getting into the fall spirit through the goodness of ciders!
