Longtime supporters and beer fans joined the Wild Heaven team Thursday evening to experience the next phase for the craft beer company – a production brewery, located a stone’s throw from Decatur in Avondale Estates.
At the groundbreaking, founder Nick Purdy and consulting brewmaster Eric Johnson led the first of what will surely be many brewery tours, spray painting where the tanks, fermenters and even the bathrooms will be.
Afterwards guests took turns swinging sledgehammers through a remaining wall.
Of course, the evening wouldn’t be complete without Wild Heaven’s brews. In commemorative pint glasses, guests sipped Eschaton, Let There Be Light and one of the two beers that started it all: Invocation.
The Pallookaville food truck provided savory pairings – freshly dipped and fried corn dogs, french fries, pickles and boiled peanuts.
The brewery is expected to open in March 2014. For more information visit wildheavencraftbeers.com.
