Former Stone Brewing Brewmaster Plans to Open Brewpub in Atlanta

It has been officially announced that Mitch Steele, Carey Falcone and Bob Powers will soon be joining the Atlanta craft beer community by opening a new brewpub in 2017.

Boasting quite the roster of beer industry veterans, Atlanta’s newest, exciting brewpub project will be led by American Beerworks Chief Executive Officer Carey Falcone, American Beerworks Chief Sales Marketing Officer Bob Powers and Former Stone Brewing Co. Brewmaster Mitch Steele.  The true name recognition and star power drawing attention to this new endeavor belongs to Steele.  While at Stone Brewing, he helped the brewery become the 10th largest craft brewer in the country and he literally wrote the book on brewing the IPA style.  His brewing expertise will be an invaluable addition to the craft beer scene in Atlanta and the Southeast.

“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.”

The yet-to-be-named brewpub project already has a location locked down at 820 Ralph McGill Avenue on Atlanta’s Beltline.  This state-of-the-art facility “will offer Atlanta a distinctive place to enjoy craft beer, great artisanal food, and an inviting atmosphere.”  You can expect the brewpub to feature a rooftop bar, an outdoor biergarten, brewery tours, and brewing workshops for homebrewers.  More details are to come, so stay tuned for any and all updates.  Prost!
