Hop City, Barleygarden to open in Pinewood Forest development

A popular beer shop and restaurant have been named as the second tenants in 

high-profile mixed-use development Pinewood Forest.

Kraig Torres will bring his Hop City Craft Beer & Wine and Barleygarden Kitchen & Craft Bar to the south metro Atlanta development in late 2019. 

The 5,500 square-foot space will offer retail, a bar and beer garden restaurant.

Hop City and Barleygarden will be one of 12 restaurants in Pinewood Forest, which is located next to Pinewood Studios, one of the biggest movie studios in the country.

This will be the fourth Hop City location, joining shops in West Midtown, Krog Street Market and Birmingham, Ala. Another location is set to open this year in the Lee + White development in the West End neighborhood.

The first Barleygarden opened in Alpharetta mixed-use development Avalon in 2017. 

 The Pinewood Forest Hop City will offer a wide selection of craft beer and wine, along with 85 rotating taps. 
“The fact that our residents and guests will be able to walk from their home and enjoy a beer and a great meal is something unique on the south side of Atlanta,” Pinewood Forest president Rob Parker said in a prepared statement.  

Pinewood’s first announced restaurant tenant, Braise, from husband and wife chefs Tanya Jiminez and Michael Le, will serve a menu of dishes with European, New American, Asian and Southern influences.

All culinary concepts will be located in Pinewood's 25-acre town center, which will also feature a hotel, other restaurants, independent retail shops and galleries, an office suite and a Piedmont Wellness Center.

Pinewood Forest, a master planned residential and mixed-use development is located in Fayette County, next to Pinewood Atlanta Studios. The development team includes Fayetteville native and Chick-fil-A CEO Dan T. Cathy.
