Glover Park Brewery is set to become Marietta Square's first beer-making joint.

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.

The business posted tidbits online about the space: a look at the art you can expect to see, pictures of good-boy dogs allowed in their beer garden and more.

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.
