N.C. beer maker seeks OK for Alpharetta brewery


A North Carolina craft beer maker has applied for a conditional use allowing it a brewery at 25 S. Main St. in downtown Alpharetta.

The request by Currahee Brewing Co. of Franklin, N.C., is scheduled for a public hearing before the Alpharetta Planning Commission at 6:30 p.m., Jan. 4, at City Hall. If the Planning Commission forwards Currahee’s request, it could be considered by the City Council at its Jan. 22 meeting.

The site currently is occupied by the Hop Alley Brewpub. Hop Alley is under the same ownership as Currahee, and the latter would replace Hop Alley as a full-production brewpub in the two-story, 2,647-square-foot building, according to a staff report to the Planning Commission. It would be Currahee’s first production facility in Georgia.

Craft beer would be served to patrons; no food would be served, but the applicant would like to allow food to be brought in from surrounding restaurants, staff said. Hours of operation would be limited to noon to midnight, seven days a week. Currahee expects to employ up to 12 people at this location.
