Besides the recent news that RiverWatch Brewery is working on a location for a satellite “tasting room” on Broad Street, there is a brewpub planned for Broad Street. The new brewery is in the planning stages, yet Insiders say it should be up and running by the second quarter of 2020.
According to city ordinance, a “Brewpub” shall mean a restaurant that produces a limited quantity of an alcoholic malt beverage for onsite consumption with incidental sales to the public as carryout and is consistent with Section 6-2-52 of the Augusta Georgia Code thereby regulating alcohol licenses for eating establishments.
The owner is not ready to announce yet, but the location has been determined.
By this time next year, Insiders expect three, if not more, breweries/brewpubs/tasting rooms to be located in the downtown/Broad Street area.
2nd City Distillery opened by the 8th Street Bulkhead earlier this year producing hard liquor for on premises consumption and retail sales.
