What’s better than a place to drink beer? A new place to drink beer that could become your ‘ol place to drink beer.
Enter Glover Park Brewery.
Marietta Square’s first brewery is now open.
There was even a ribbon-cutting ceremony with city officials before their grand opening.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution spoke with the owners, fourth-generation Mariettian Hank DuPre and seventh-generation Mariettian Sam Rambo in March about what to expect from the place.
The brewery is located at 65 Atlanta Street in the 1932 building that was once a Sears, Roebuck and Company.
Plans filed with the city show the top floor as an event space with about 5,000 square feet and a taproom of 6,000 square feet.
The brewery is across from a Sherwin-Williams store and about 950 feet from its namesake park, which is named after the city’s first mayor John Glover — whom DuPre said is his great-great-great-great-grandfather.
The longtime friends didn’t know how to make beer, so they called on Kevin McNerney, co-founder of SweetWater Brewery, as an adviser.
