Check out Best End Brewing before it opens in West End next month

Another brewery is joining the beer-heavy lineup in West End, and its giving beer fans a chance to check it out before the official opening.

Best End Brewing Co., a 20-bbl brewpub featuring a brewery and restaurant, is slated to open Sept. 20 in the Lee + White development at 1036 White St. SW, just off the Southwest Beltline trail.

The brewery, which will also offer craft cocktails and a wine list with a focus on natural wines, is giving guests the opportunity to get a sneak peek at two dinners Sept. 13 and 14. 

The dinners, limited to 50 people per night, will each have a different menu and will offer beers brewed in-house by co-owner and brewer, Tim Schiavone. Co-owner and chef Cory Burke will prepare six plates, both small and family style, and general manager Valerie Albanese will curate the wine and cocktail selection. 

“Our vision is to not only show you our space, but to also give you a taste of who we are and what type of journey we’d like to take you on,” according to a press release. 

The brewery is also asking for feedback from attendees. Ten percent of proceeds from ticket sales for the dinner will be donated to United Way.

Best End, which has been in the works for three years, has been in build-out mode for the past year, with most design elements using reclaimed and salvaged materials. 

The space features walls built with reclaimed pallet, fence, barn and wood found on the side of the road. The bars are made with salvaged North Georgia live-edge slab from red oak, white oak and sycamore trees, and the tables are built from old door pallets and steel. Extra HVAC vents are used as flower pots and all plates and platters are from thrift stores.

Once open, Best End will join several other beverage concepts at Lee + White including Hop City beer store and its beer-focused restaurant Boxcar, ASW Distillery’s Exchange tasting room and and barrel-aging facility, Monday Night Brewing, the newly-opened Wild Heaven Beer and kombucha purveyor Cultured South.

Best End dinners. 6:30-9 p.m. Sept. 13-14. $50 for food only and $75 for food, cocktails, beer and wine. 1036 White St. SW, Atlanta.

Note: Alcohol will not be available on-site during the dinner outside of the dinner package, but Best End’s first crowlers will be available to purchase after the dinner.

Note: The menu will not be announced until night of so if you have any allergies, food aversions or general questions, email
