Decatur’s Three Taverns brewery opening ‘Imaginarium’ in mixed-use project near the Beltline
Decatur’s Three Taverns brewery is opening a second location at the Atlanta Dairies mixed-use development in Reynoldstown, just off the Atlanta Beltline.
The Three Taverns Imaginarium, “will focus on experimental and creative beers.”
“Set to open summer of 2019, the Imaginarium, an extension of Decatur’s Three Taverns Brewery, will be equal parts laboratory, brewery, and tasting room,” the company said in a press release. “Inspired by an ancient cabinet of curiosities, it will welcome those with a preference for the unpredictable.”
Three Taverns Imaginarium will have four or five of the staple Three Taverns beers on tap along with a rotating list of 20 to 25 experimental beers that utilize different styles, ingredients and brewing techniques.
“Beyond a heavy rotation of experimental beers including juicy and hazy IPAs, and in keeping with the Dairies theme, The Imaginarium will use lactose in some of their beers to craft styles like milk stouts, fruit and cream sours and milkshake IPAs currently gaining popularity in the marketplace,” the press release says. “Its hope is to complement its beer offerings with small food plates from rotating kiosks or pop-up stations.”
The look will be different from its Decatur location, the company says.
“The Imaginarium will give Three Taverns an opportunity to be creative and imaginative, and the space will have its own unique identity designed by architecture firm Square Feet Studios,” the company press release says. “While The Parlour in Decatur gets its look and feel from early European and American pubs, the Imaginarium draws inspiration from the scientific world of centuries past: laboratories, apothecaries, and cabinets of curiosities, where collectors would proudly put their experiments and discoveries on display. The vibrant and ever-changing nature of Atlanta and the exciting growth and culture of the city are the perfect backdrop for our journey into exploration and invention.”
The Atlanta Dairies mixed use development is located on the site of the Atlanta Dairies cooperative.
“For 60 years, the old ATLANTA DAIRIES cooperative, with its familiar milk carton sign and Art Deco façade, was a hub of commercial activity on Memorial Drive,” the project’s website says. “Rooted in this industrial heritage, Paces Properties’ vision for Atlanta Dairies includes a curated mix of specialty shopping, dining, and entertainment venues, all connected by greenspace. In addition to unique office space and apartments, Atlanta Dairies will be a 24/7 gathering place where visitors can come for a meal, stick around for outdoor drinks and games, and discover arts events and live music—again and again.”
The address for the project is 777 Memorial Dr SE, Atlanta, GA.
