LaGrange, Georgia, brewery and distillery Wild Leap opens a location with two levels this fall at Centennial Yards South, part of a 50-acre redevelopment of the historic Gulch and railyards just south of State Farm Arena and Mercedes-Benz Stadium in downtown Atlanta. Centennial Yards South comprises six of the 50 acres at the complex.

Formerly home to offices and the freight depot for Norfolk Southern Railroad, Wild Leap will anchor Centennial Yards South with multiple bars and lounge areas and outdoor seating spanning over 15,000 square feet. The main level of the brewery-distillery opens onto what’s being dubbed the Canyon at the complex, a 750-foot walkway located below street level that will eventually include more dining and entertainment options. In addition to brewing and distilling from the Atlanta location, Wild Leap will also offer food here, a representative for the company tells Eater.

Once finished, the $100 million Centennial Yards redevelopment project will feature two levels of retail, restaurants, and office space as well as apartments flanking Ted Turner Drive.

Rob Goldstein, Anthony Rodriguez, and Chris Elliott founded Wild Leap four years again in LaGrange, a city 70 miles southwest of Atlanta near the Alabama border. Wild Leap became the first brewery in LaGrange when it opened inside a renovated 1940s-era building. In addition to beer and vodka, Wild Leap also produces canned cocktails.
