Remember those redevelopment plans for property adjacent to the BeltLine’s forthcoming Westside Trail? They’re coming into sharper focus. Friday morning, Westside-based Monday Night Brewing announced it’s expanding with a new brewery at the development, located at the intersection of Lee and White streets in West End.
The early timeline calls for a summer 2017 opening. That coincides with plans to debut the newest portion of the BeltLine, which is currently in the works. Monday Night will focus on barrel-aged beers at the facility.
"We thought long and hard about building in the city again," reads the brewery’s announcement. "Frankly, we were courted seriously by other cities in Georgia and other states as well. Ultimately, we love this city and want to help build something great here."
The new space will cover 22,000 square feet and include multiple barrel-aging and souring rooms, a tasting room and patio along the BeltLine, and a "dog- and bicycle-friendly outdoor space." An adjacent orchard will produce fruits for the brews.
"We obviously want to make sure this new space is economically viable, but we also want to make sure we are building something that enhances and reflects the community that surrounds it," reads the announcement. "Southwest Atlanta isn’t as developed as the Westside, but it is already home to vibrant communities such as West End and Adair Park. We hope to be a meeting place for these neighbors, to employ these neighbors, and to invest back into the community when possible."
