If you're a fan of beer, chances are you'll be spending a lot of time on the Beltline in the near future.
Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that yet another beer-focused concept is headed for the Westside Beltline Trail.
Banyan Roots Brewing Co.is set to open an 18,000-square-foot brewpub at the Lee + White development along Lee and White streets south of I-20.
Dallas–based Stream Realty Partners is developing the $30 million project, which will also be home to second locations of Monday Night Brewing and Wild Heaven Beer . Other tenants will include Honeysuckle Gelato , Southern Aged cheesemakers and Doux South pickle company. Two other beer projects -- Mitch Steele's New Realm Brewing Co. and beer garden Lingering Shade Lounge --are set for the Eastside Trail.
Featuring a 20-barrel brewhouse with a three-barrel pilot system, Banyan Roots will be headed up by head brewer and director of brewery operations Tim Schiavone. He told the Business Chronicale that the brewpub will offer a sour-aging program, high-gravity barrel-aged beer, a private chef’s table, and a large outdoor patio.
Banyan Roots will also serve up a beer-inspired food menu from Roti Rolls founder Cory Burke.
Schiavone is a no stranger to Atlanta's food and beer scene, with stints at Porter Beer Bar, Wrecking Bar Brewpub, Max Lager’s Wood-Fired Grill & Brewery, Brick Store Pub and Twain’s Brewpub & Billiards.
Look for Banyan Roots to open late this year or early in 2018.
