FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Beer lovers and aficionados received some good news Friday: Cherry Street Brewing Cooperative has officially opened its new taproom expansion.

The expansion, first announced in January, adds on to the existing business with more than 18,000 square feet and doubles their taproom space. The added space comes as a welcome relief for crowds, who now have more room to spread out and enjoy their drinks.

For owner Nick Tanner, the expansion is a boon for their brewing storage and production. Barrels that used to crowd the brewery can be moved into the area to make space for more tanks, which of course means more beer for customers.

“This is going to allow us to double our brewing production,” Tanner said. “In a couple weeks, we’re bringing more brewing tanks for the front of the brewery.”

Right now, the business has 13 tanks, which helped it produce more than 30,000 gallons worth and 60 different types of beer last year. Soon, they expect to increase that production with a total of 17 tanks.

The new section is also expected to allow the brewery to hold more private parties, banquets and events. It has wood-panel flooring to create a more rustic atmosphere for visitors to enjoy.

After the success of the new taproom opening, Cherry Street Brewing Cooperative is not slowing down. In a few weeks, April 29, the company will hold a Beer Fest & Cornhole Tournament to benefit the Humane Society of Forsyth. In the meantime, interested visitors can check out the new taproom and get a peek behind the brewing process every Saturday from 1-4 p.m. with a free tour.
