Get details about the kombucha bar set to open on the Westside Beltline

Kombucha will be as good as Golda this spring in Atlanta's West End.

Melanie Wade, the creator of Golda Kombucha, will open Cultured South in the Lee + White development at 1038 White St. off the Beltline's Westside trail.

The fermentation company will feature a kombucha bar and fermentation marketplace that will sell fermented food and beverage products including Golda kombucha as well as Wade's Pure Abundance Cashew Cheese. The 6,000 square-foot warehouse will house areas for production, tastings and retail and will allow customers to taste, take home and learn about the making of kombucha, a fermented tea drink.

This will mark Golda's third expansion since launching in 2013 and will see the company move from its current facility on the Eastside.

The company, which has launched a Kickstarter to secure additional funding for the brick-and-mortar project, will also host events in its new space, including the second installment of Fermentation Fest on May 20, as well as fermentation and yoga classes and collaborations with other craft beverage breweries.

Cultured South will join several other high-profile projects moving into the Lee + White space including Wild Heaven Beer, Hop City , Monday Night Brewing , ASW Distillery, Doux South Pickles and Honeysuckle Gelato.
