I’m excited to report that our pal Mitch Steele formerly of Stone Brewing will be teaming up with Bob Powers and Carey Falcone to open a “yet to be named” brewery and brewpub in Atlanta, GA (820 Ralph McGill Ave). They are aiming for a 2017 opening so stay tuned for more details.
A group of beer industry veterans will contribute to the burgeoning craft beer scene in Atlanta in 2017. Co-founders Mitch Steele, Carey Falcone and Bob Powers are developing a new craft brewery and brewpub located at 820 Ralph McGill Avenue on Atlanta’s growing Beltline. The project will offer Atlanta a distinctive place to enjoy craft beer, great artisanal food, and an inviting atmosphere.
Brewmaster Mitch Steele comes to Atlanta from Stone Brewing, headquartered in Escondido, California. Stone is the tenth largest craft brewer in the United States with additional breweries in Richmond, Virginia and Berlin, Germany.
“I’ve enjoyed a wonderful career in craft brewing and I am excited for this next chapter in Atlanta,” said Steele. “I had an amazing time at Stone and I am very thankful for my experiences there. Now, I am looking forward to the opportunity to become part of the growing craft beer movement in Atlanta and the Southeast.”
With additional details on the team’s unique brewpub concept forthcoming, Atlantans can take heart that Steele will continue to hone his craft in a state of the art facility that will feature a rooftop bar and a beer garden, with brewery tours and brewing classes for the home brewer.
