The Wicked Weed Funkatorium opened on Friday, Oct. 10, and there’s no arguing that it’s the big news of the week for the South Slope. However, a few other South Slope breweries are busy expanding as we head into fall:
- Burial Beer (40 Collier Ave) has moved its new 10-barrel system into place and will have it up and running in the near future. This is huge news for fans of the brewery, as they’ll soon be brewing a lot more beer. Look for expanded hours and an expanded selection at the brewery’s tasting room soon. As if that weren’t enough, the renovations will eventually include a new outdoor area, complete with seating and a small urban farm — and there’s a new mural visible from the street on Collier.
- Green Man has demolished part of the stretch of buildings it owns on Buxton Avenue. The brewery has a major expansion in the works, with full renderings of the plans available soon. For now, the specialty brewery and the main brewery are still in place inside the other buildings Green Man occupies on Buxton.
- Catawba’s building shell is nearly ready in the Standard Paper Building on Banks Avenue. The brewery will soon begin their interior renovations and work. The Catawba team already has a brewhouse and other brewing equipment stored in town at their Biltmore Village tasting room.
NOTE: An earlier version of this post said Burial’s 10-barrel system is already operating. Actually, brewing has not yet started but is slated to begin soon.
