Georgia's First Brewery
Large pieces of tabby seen here on the bank of the creek, now known as duBignon Creek, mark the site and are the remains of the first brewery established in Georgia. Crops of barley, rye, and hops, planted and raised in Horton's fields on Jekyll, were used in making beer for the soldiers at nearby Frederica on St. Simons Island.
Major William Horton, of OglethorpeÕs Regiment, was the first English resident of Jekyll Island. The remains of HortonÕs tabby house stand northeast of this brewery.
