Cherry Street to expand

Brewery will take over space next door

Cherry Streets’ expansion will allow the business to increase production by 50 percent, as well as have more room for people to enjoy the beers.

FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Forsyth County’s own local brewery, Cherry Street Brewing Cooperative, will soon be expanding.
Located at 5817 South Vickery Street in Vickery Village, the business will be taking over the space next door that currently houses the Dojo, according to owner Nick Tanner. The Dojo will move into a bigger space on the other side of the village, he said.
“It’s working out the best for both of us,” Tanner said.
Unfortunately, a flood at Vickery Village has closed some of the businesses and pushed the opening of the taproom expansion.
But that isn’t stopping Tanner from looking forward.
“The expansion will allow us to double our seating capacity for the taproom,” he said. “This will allow us to breathe a little bit and not feel so jammed tight there in certain times.”
More room will also equal more private parties, banquets and events.
One of the tastiest results of the expansion is that the brewery can expand its barrel aging program, which Cherry Street is known for.
“We take bourbon and wine barrels and age our beer in them to acquire characteristics from the previous liquor or wine,” Tanner said.
Additionally, the brewery can take in more brewing tanks to increase production by about 50 percent.
Cherry Street has already begun releasing bottled beer into the market, but the expansion will allow the group to consistently produce bottles for the local liquor stores.
“It’s a really nice expansion for us,” Tanner said. “That little bit of space is actually allowing us to do a lot more.”
