Atlanta startup, Pontoon Brewing, which has been brewing beers such as its No Pants Pilsner under contract at Thomas Creek Brewery in Greenville, SC, and Coastal Empire in Savannah, GA, is set to open a new brewery in Sandy Springs.

According to an announcement today, the facility at Northridge Business Center will be located between Georgia 400 and Roswell Road, on Dunwoody Place, and will occupy an 11,000 square foot space that will house a custom-made 10 barrel, six vessel brewhouse.

The anticipated opening date is Sept., 2017, and the brewery will offer tours, tastings, growler and crowler sales, events, live music and tailgate parties.

"We love the relaxed lifestyle of enjoying beer with friends on a pontoon boat,” partner Sean O’Keefe said in the announcement. “Our vision here is to appeal to the business community and offer a relaxing way to spend time after a day at work. A big portion of our clientele lives and works in the Sandy Springs area, so we will now be able to offer them not only our product, but a place to enjoy it. We want to be the happy hour spot.”
