Who we are

Located in historic downtown Kennesaw, Georgia, The Nest combines Southern BBQ with a traditional beer garden.

The Nest Kennesaw opened in February of 2016 and is located next to Depot Park in Historic Downtown Kennesaw, Georgia. The Nest boasts a legendary beer list. Fifty-Nine taps pouring great craft beers, draft coffee, draft wines plus nitro charged brews. 

The property is the union of two 1880s homes. We have kept the majority of these historical homes. Our bar is the centerpiece of the home on the left. Referred to by regulars as "The Thirsty Owl", you will be drawn in by the stainless steel taps and chalk on the wall. Take a seat at our bar and tell us what you like to drink. The house on the right holds our kitchen. Our chef is cooking up a unique menu that is loaded with southern influences. Have a seat and enjoy the smell of home cooked meal. 

Connecting the two homes is a 2,000 square foot patio anchored by our Sherman Chimney. This is our beer garden. A place to come for a meal, have a beer, build a community, have another beer, and play Pac-Man. Cheers!

1st Annual DCBC Beer Dinner

1st Annual Dry County Beer Dinner Ticket Pre-sale

Sometime in the distant future, in a galaxy far far away, or really just down the street, we invite you to our first ever beer dinner featuring our neighbors Dry County Brewing Company. We are excited to offer this opportunity to our neighbors and offer a special price for pre-sale while we are all anxiously anticipating our new normal. The dinner will be a traditional beer and dinner pairing consisting of 5 courses. Each course will be paired with two 4 ounce pours of a different Dry County Beer - one paired by The Nest Kennesaw and one paired by Dry County. It is your job to vote who best paired the beer with the dish!

Additionally, Monroe and Trey will collaborate on a beer just for this dinner pairing. You can be a part of this process because we are raffling off a guest collab spot on this beer! You will receive one entry with your pre-sale ticket and additional raffle tickets may be purchased for $10 a piece. The more raffle tickets you have the better your chances of winning are!

Our Dry County Beer Dinner will be hosted on a Thursday in the Summer/Fall. More information to follow after updates regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic.
