Brewery Construction Begins!
Our vision at Round Trip Brewing Co. is to welcome the community to enjoy world-class beer in a dynamic space that encourages exploration and camaraderie.
The journey to making this vision a reality is a step closer. We are happy to announce construction on our two-story 26,000 sq ft brewhouse and taproom has begun. The brewery is located in the Underwood Hills neighborhood in the emerging brewing district of the Upper Westside of Atlanta.
The facility will include a taproom, brewhouse, event space, packaging hall, and an adaptable outdoor area.
The centerpiece of our facility – the taproom – comprises seats aplenty for 250 guests to sample the 12 beers on tap. Custom-made tables and benches built by Broken Fence Woodworking provide a comfortable communal environment for people to enjoy the beer. The taproom is a space for after work socials, softball team gatherings, artist showcases, comedy and improv performances, live music, and striking up a conversation with a stranger.
Next to the taproom, the brewery features a dedicated event booking space with private bar access. The versatile outdoor area can be adapted for different functions and events as well.
Whether you drink beer or not, the brewery will be open to you. You can even bring the kids!
We worked closely with Probrew to outfit us with a three vessel 15 barrel brewhouse. It incorporates a dedicated mash tun that collects final runnings from the previous batch, making it highly efficient. The kettles have a beautiful, German-style dish top design which will be viewable from the taproom. Additionally we have 30 barrel fermenters for double batches and 7 barrel tanks for one-off tap room creations.
Packaging and distribution will take place on the second floor where you will also find the brewery’s offices. Since our goal is to build a strong taproom culture to start, the distribution space will be reserved for private putt-putt practice.
We selected companies with specific expertise and an intimate knowledge of the Atlanta beer industry to bring the vision of the brewery to life.
Morrison Shearer is the contractor responsible for overseeing construction. Their work includes the recently completed second location for Cherry St. Brewing Company in Cumming.
Placemaker Designs, who worked to develop Reformation Brewing’s taproom in Woodstock and the Beacon development in Grant Park, serves as the architect on the project.
East Mountain Development, led by Alex Brennan, consults on the project as a whole and coordinates with all stakeholders.
We are excited to join the growing list of breweries in the neighborhood and look forward to seeing the area become a prominent beer destination.
So, that’s our space. We cannot wait for you to regale us with your travel stories when you stop by the brewery with your friends in a few months.
