Catawba Brewing is putting the final touches on its South Slope brewery and tasting room.

The space, which is next door to Vortex Donuts at 32 Banks Ave., is about 5,400 square feet. It includes a huge main bar and tasting room with 24 taps, a 7-barrel brewery, outdoor space and a rickhouse room, which will house barrels for aging beer and a second bar.

The grand opening is scheduled for Wednesday, April 1. Hours after that will be 2-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday and noon-10 p.m. Friday-Sunday. More information will be available in print and online next week in Xpress.
