Wild Heaven has finally begun construction, after announcing their plans to open a second facility in 2017 and join fellow brewery Monday Night Brewing at the Lee + White development in West End. Wild Heaven announced it had broken ground on their new Beltline brewery, taproom, and trail-facing patio on Facebook. They now expect to open in early 2019.
Nick Purdy, president of Wild Heaven Beer, told Eater Atlanta in February the West End brewery will focus on high volume and experimental beers and IPAs, while the Decatur facility continues with its Belgian, sour, and barrel-aged beer production.
Wild Heaven-Westside, as it’s being called, covers 21,000-square-feet at Lee + White and will include a 15-barrel brewhouse, followed later by a 60-barrel system for production of the brewery’s main line of beers.
It’s been a big year for Wild Heaven. The brewery inked a major deal with Mercedes-Benz Stadium in September for a new beer called ATL Pale Ale to be sold on tap and in 16-ounce tall boys at concession stands. $5 gets beer drinkers 12 ounces of ATL Pale Ale. A 20-ounce beer sets the wallet back seven bucks.
In addition to Wild Heaven and Monday Night’s Garage, Lee + White is also home to kombucha taproom and fermentation market Cultured South. Hop City Craft Beer shop and its brewpub, a second location of whiskey producer ASW Distillery, Doux South Pickles, and Honeysuckle Gelato are also slated to open at the complex next year.
