One of the most recognizable names in craft beer, Mitch Steele announced he was leaving Stone Brewing last summer to do his own thing, which we later found out was a “yet to be named project [that] will offer Atlanta a distinctive place to enjoy craft beer, great artisanal food and an inviting atmosphere… in a state of the art facility that will feature a rooftop bar and a beer garden, with brewery tours and brewing classes for the home brewer.”
Sounds fun, and now this fun has a name: New Realm Brewing.
New Realm Brewing details
Goes without saying that the core of New Realm Brewing is Co-Founder, Brewmaster and COO, Mitch Steele, formerly brewmaster for 10 years at Stone Brewing. Steele is currently developing recipes and has shared that craft fans can “count on IPAs being poured at New Realm as well as barrel-aged beers and traditional lagers.”
New Realm Brewing will break ground soon in preparation to open the 20,000-square-foot space located at 820 Ralph McGill Avenue in the growing Beltline area.
Steele partnered with Carey Falcone and Bob Powers of American Beerworks, a privately funded acquirer and investor of craft breweries in the Americas, on the new venture.
“We could not be more thrilled to announce our name, New Realm,” said Carey Falcone, co-founder and CEO. “It has taken us quite a bit of time, over many beers of course, to create our vision and land on the right name for our future brewery and restaurant. New Realm speaks to our desire to create a new realm in brewing and dining experiences and to support an outstanding and dynamic local craft beer community.”
“Plans are underway to bring Atlanta and its visitors a distinctive venue to enjoy craft beer and great artisanal foods in an inviting, unique and fun atmosphere,” said Bob Powers, co-founder and CCO. “In addition to our production brewery, we will have a restaurant, as well as both a rooftop bar and an outdoor beer garden at New Realm, and we look forward to unveiling design plans in the near future.”
