A Brewpub Opens Tonight in Oakhurst Offering Ales, Stouts, and Mesquite Frites

Sceptre Brewing Arts opens for beer and food on East Lake Drive

Sceptre Brewing Arts
Beth McKibben is the editor and staff reporter for Eater Atlanta and has been covering food and cocktails locally and regionally for over 12 years.

Brewpub Sceptre Brewing Arts opens tonight at 5 p.m. in Oakhurst, the AJC reports. It’s owned by Armando Celentano, Benjamin Rhoades, and Donald Durant of East Atlanta Village pub Argosy. The Oakhurst pub includes a tasting room and bar with up to 20 taps and a dining room as well as a patio and beer garden.

Brewmaster Trevor Jones has created seven to eight beers so far for Sceptre — like a “supper ale” or “table beer” and dry-hopped culture ales — using mainly Georgia grown ingredients. Nitro iced coffee, ginger beer, draft wine, cocktails, and other local beers are included on the drinks menu.

As for food, expect a “Southern picnic” of dishes including charcuterie from local butcher the Spotted Trotter, smoked trout dip, mesquite frites, a cheeseburger on a Hawaiian roll, fish and chips, and a jar of chicken salad served with a side of Saltines.

Scepter is currently open from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m. daily over the next two weeks. Plans to expand those hours from 3 p.m. to 12 a.m. should occur some time in July, with a sort of happy hour and special snacks offered from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

630 East Lake Drive, Oakhurst, Decatur.
