Construction on forthcoming Underwood Hills brewery Round Trip Brewing finally kicks off this week. The brewery resides along Seaboard Industrial Boulevard, between Atlanta Brewing Company and Second Self Beer Company, in the northwest Atlanta neighborhood. A representative tells Eater Atlanta they hope to open later this summer.
At 26,000 square feet and two stories, Round Trip’s facility features a taproom accommodating up to 250 people offering 12 beers on tap, an outdoor area, private events space, packaging hall, and a 15-barrel brewhouse. The brewery also includes 30-barrel fermenters and seven-barrel tanks to allow CEO and head brewer Craig Mycoskie to create double batch and one-off beers for the taproom.
“We have dreamed of opening our own brewery for a long time but started this journey in earnest a couple years ago. To see our hard work start to take shape is truly rewarding,” Mycoskie says in the press release.
Mycoskie worked as a brewer for over 12 years in Denver, Forth Worth, and Austin, and volunteered at Atlanta’s SweetWater Brewing Company while attending college in Athens, Georgia, where he met co-owner Amy Mycoskie.
“My journey in beer has led me to a tremendous appreciation of German styles, such as hefeweizen, dunkel, helles, and my focus will be to serve high quality German-style beer while pushing the boundaries of those styles,” he says.
Round Trip Brewing joins an area some have dubbed the “Westside Beer District” due to its heavy concentration of breweries throughout the Underwood Hills, Blandtown, and Berkeley Park neighborhoods. This includes Scofflaw Brewing Co. and its forthcoming second location at Chattahoochee Food Works, Atlanta Brewing Co., Second Self Beer, Steady Hand Beer Co., brewpub Bold Monk, and Monday Night Brewing.
Neighboring Fire Maker Brewing, owned by Elliott Hall, opens in a former warehouse on Chattahoochee Avenue in Underwood Hills on March 28. That brewery features a 2,000-square-foot taproom with over 30 taps, seating at the bar and high top tables, and garage doors opening to a covered patio.
