DECATUR, GA — Several Midtown, East Atlanta, Buckhead, Virginia Highland and downtown brewpubs, cideries, wineries and distilleries are taking part in a Lyft discounted rides promotion. The ride-service provider said, to encourage riders to drink responsibly, it’s offering 50 percent off trips home from these 60 breweries, cideries, wineries and distilleries. To get the discount, Atlantans take a Lyft to a participating location, show the bartender their ride receipts and get a code for 50 percent off their rides home.
According to Lyft, here are some of the more popular destinations:
Three most popular summer drinking spots: Orpheus Brewing, Monday Night Brewing, SweetWater Brewing CoThe most popular spot for "fancy pants" Lyft guests (who choose Lyft Lux or Lux Black): Atkins Park restaurant & bar
In 2018, Lyft first partnered with the Georgia Craft Brewers Guild to offer discounted rides home from 21 member breweries. The program has now expanded to include 60 participating partners made up of wineries, cideries, distilleries, and breweries outside the guild.
Lyft was founded in 2012 by Logan Green and John Zimmer, and is available to 95 percent of the U.S. population as well as select cities in Canada.
