Avondale Estates’ love affair with beer continues.
City officials will gather on Friday, May 30, to mark the official opening of the Wild Heaven brewery, an 8,000 square foot facility with a 30-barrel brewing system. The brewing system has a bit of history to it. It has been used by SweetWater and Terrapin brewing companies.
The ribbon cutting will be at 11 am, and city officials will be on hand to give the business a proper start.
The press release from the city says, “Wild Heaven aims to be one of America’s great breweries and to help raise the profile of beer in the South.”
Beer has become an important part of the local economy. Earlier this year, the City Commission amended city code to allow for homebrew competitions. The city hosted the Peach State Brew Off on March 29.
