Monday Night Brewing is expanding into southwest Atlanta.
Operators of the craft brewery, which opened in northwest Atlanta in 2012, joined Mayor Kasim Reed and City Councilwoman Cleta Winslow on Tuesday to break ground for a new manufacturing facility on Lee Street.
The groundbreaking comes as the West End, one of Atlanta’s oldest neighborhoods, has created a Community Improvement District in hopes of revitalizing the area. A CID increasing property taxes for member merchants and uses the extra income to improve roads, hire off duty or retired police officers to patrol streets and to develop greenspace.
“After five successful years in northwest Atlanta, Monday Night Brewing was looking to expand in a location that had the kind of character, square footage and high ceilings that these old brick warehouses offer,” Reed said.
