History of Hixtown

Hixtown is the former name of the city of Villa Rica in the early-to-mid 1800s. The city began to grow when gold was discovered in the area shortly after being settled, and Hixtown, combined with the nearby town of Cheevestown, contained almost 60% of the population of Carroll County. With the construction of a new railroad line in 1882, Cheevestown and Hixtown moved and combined to create the new city of Villa Rica - The city of riches. ​


Making History

Hixtown Brewing Company owes a debt of gratitude to many of our neighbors who have supported us during our preparation to open.  The list is long, and fearing we may leave someone out, we want to say thanks to a few folks who helped us get the doors open.

Nick is our assistant brewer. He was lucky enough to stumble upon a new brewery willing to teach him the ropes. After graduation while continuing his Cicerone and brewing certifications, Nick hopes to continue brewing wherever the path leads him.
