From the Earth Brewing Company is opening a Beer Garden by the River June 27.
Owners Lisa and Tim Stevens modeled the space after a traditional beer garden. Beer Garden by the River will serve food, craft beer, cocktails, live music, games and fun at 201 Azalea Drive. The space is currently an empty green space, but tables and seating will be added.
"We have always wanted to open something on the water," Lisa Stevens said. "We use the river and trails often and know the need for food and beverage is there. We were approached by the owner of the land and jumped at the opportunity!"
The beer garden will be family friendly space with small bites, local beers, craft cocktails, King of Pop’s and non-alcoholic beverages. In addition to From the Earth Brewing Company’s beers, Stevens said the company will be teaming with other local breweries for tap takeovers and special beers.
"We are working with local distillers and hope to invite them out to showcase their products as well," Stevens said. "We are still working out the final details on food. We originally started off with the menu with street taco’s, but with having extra time before we are opening we are going to increase options to a limited FTE menu. We will offer Gate City, Variant (when available), and we will also feature Pontoon, Six Bridges, Glover Park, and other local breweries."
Stevens originally planned to open the beer garden June 5, but had to delayed opening due to COVID-19. From the Earth Brewing is working with the city to decide the number of guests allowed during the pandemic. The beer garden will also have signs and space everything out at least 6 feet apart.
From the Earth Brewing Company's Beer Garden by the River will be Friday 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Saturday 12 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
