Award-winning brewery set to open a brewpub in Forsyth County

The Cumming brewery that won the 2017 U.S. Open Beer Championship is opening a second space in Forsyth County.

Cherry Street Brewing will open a nearly 8,000-square-foot brewpub and beer garden in mixed-use development Halcyon.

The spot will serve a menu of seasonal, upscale pub food. The beer selection will include 16 existing Cherry Street beers, as well as a brew specifically made for the Halcyon location.  The open-air beer garden will feature communal tables, bar space and a stage for special events.

Other announced tenants include Gu’s Dumplings, Mexican street food joint Tocayo, Kilwin’s Chocolate, Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee Company, Butcher & Brew and Never Enough Tyme.
