Big news from Atlas today! From a press release:
Atlas Brew Works today announced the opening of a new Tap Room in its Ivy City brewery and extended hours of operation.
The new environment connects to the 100 percent solar powered brewery’s new outdoor patio space on West Virginia Ave NE, which opened earlier this spring. The new facility represents the first major expansion of the three-year-old operation, which has grown to produce 4,000 barrels of environmentally responsible beer per year.
“We worked to create a comfortable and open environment for our patrons to enjoy fresh local craft beer directly from the source,” said Atlas Founder & CEO Justin Cox. “We’ve moved beyond traditional beer tastings; Atlas Brew Works is proud to be a gathering place for the community. Through this new Tap Room, we’re excited to expand our offerings in the number of beers available and open every day of the week.”
The new 2,600 sq foot Tap Room abuts the production brewery, includes a large garage door window for views of the brewery, and has room to accommodate up to 16 draft lines. Atlas will soon install a 3.5bbl pilot brewing system to compliment the new space.
“The pilot system will allow us to express our brewing creativity in small batches available only in the Tap Room and in select accounts throughout our distribution footprint,” said Cox.
The temperature controlled Tap Room is also available to rent as a private event space by contacting [email protected]
The new Tap Room is open seven days a week starting Memorial Day weekend:
- 4pm-10pm Monday through Thursday
- 4pm-11pm Friday
- 11am-11pm Saturday
- 11am-10pm Sunday.
Tours of the production facility will be held Saturdays at 12pm, 2pm, 4pm,& 6pm. Patrons will be able to continue to bring their own food to the brewery throughout the week and purchase from local food trucks most weekends.
