Atlanta Brewery closes after just 2 years of business

December 17, 2023 by No Comments

After two years of serving up craft beer and delectable eats, Biggerstaff Brewing Company in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward closed its doors for good this Saturday, December 16. The owners, Clay and Sarah Davies, have declined to disclose the specific reasons behind the decision to shutter the brewpub, but have confirmed that there are no plans to relocate or reopen the establishment elsewhere.

Biggerstaff Brewing opened in 2021 with a focus on morning coffee, transitioning to a full food and beer menu in the afternoon. Their kitchen was renowned for its shareable plates, including charcuterie boards, smoked Vidalia onion rings, crispy cornbread bites, pork belly atop creamy farrow, and beets and brats. The brewery produced a variety of IPAs, sours, and pale ales, many infused with coffee or smoked to impart unique flavors. A lively front patio, often packed with patrons enjoying the Eastside Beltline trail, added to the brewpub’s appeal.

This latest closure marks the fourth significant restaurant closure on Edgewood Avenue in 2023. In June, Georgia Beer Garden, housed in a former peanut butter factory and later a veterinary hospital, bid farewell to its loyal patrons. The establishment, known for its extensive selection of mostly Georgia beers and ciders, has now been replaced by pop-up wine bar Long Snake and cocktail bar Mambo Zombi, which occupies the second story.
