Asheville-based, self-serve beer hangout Pour Taproom is opening at SPX Alley along the Eastside Beltline in the Old Fourth Ward, the Atlanta Business Chronicle reports. It should open next spring.
The taproom offers several self-service tap stations featuring a large, rotating list of local, craft, and seasonal beers, along with cider and wine. Beer drinkers open a tab and pay by the ounce for more of a tasting-type experience. Food is usually available for purchase. Menus vary by location.
Pour Taproom won’t be the only beer-centric spot along this stretch of the trail. Less than a half mile from SPX Alley, chef Kevin Gillespie plans to open an expansive beer garden and restaurant called Cold Beer at the Edge complex near Edgewood Avenue. Cold Beer features three Beltline-facing patios, including a rooftop patio and another located underneath the Edgewood Avenue bridge along the trail. It plans to open this spring.
Pour Taproom opened in Asheville in 2014 and now includes nine locations throughout the Southeast and in Santa Cruz, California. It joins margarita bar Gauc y Margys, Nina & Rafi (grandma pie,) cocktail bar the James Room, and Hawkers Asian Street Fare at SPX Alley.
