Athens is about to get a new brewpub.

Brews will include ESB, tart brett saison, sweet stour and Belgian tripel, as well as more familiar styles such as IPAs, sessions and saisons.
Menu offerings will include upscale pub fare such as seasonal flatbreads, burgers and poutine, with several vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options.
