STATS in Downtown Atlanta to Add In-House Brewery, become STATS Brewpub
Anticipated to serve signature brews early summer ATLANTA (February 13, 2017)
The popular downtown Atlanta sports bar STATS has announced it will add an in-house brewery to the restaurant space, creating an ever more unique dining opportunity for its frequent guests, tourists and more, rebranding itself as STATS Brewpub. The addition of the brewery will allow STATS to expand the beer list to include up to six of its own craft brews along with the full bar program featuring local, regional and international beers. Construction on the brewery will begin this month and the first beer is anticipated to be tapped in July 2017.
“The brewery is something we’ve been thinking about, and with the ever growing popularity in the craft beer scene, especially in Atlanta, it seems like a great opportunity and addition to our restaurant,” said Legacy Ventures Chief Operating Officer for Restaurants Brian Bullock. “Our beer program will remain very strong, offering a little something for everyone, and now adding our own brews will make STATS even more of a dining destination.”
The new brewery will take over the restaurant’s Coke Zero event space located in the lower level of the restaurant. Once it opens, small groups will be hosted in the tasting room for private parties as well as beer dinners and other events.
At this time, STATS is securing a brewmaster to oversee the program. The brewery system will allow the restaurant to offer six taps and unique beers to complement the restaurant’s menu program and seasonal flavors. While the focus will be on the STATS signature brews, STATS will continue to offer guests its strong list of beer options and will keep its famous tabletop beer taps for guests that will be a mix of STATS and other craft brews.
More details will become available as the restaurant continues the remodeling phase of the brewery. For more details, visit www.statsatl.com.
