How much does the founder of Wild Heaven Craft Beers love Avondale Estates?

Let him count the ways.

Founder Nick Purdy, opened a 8,500 square foot brewing facility on Maple Street in Avondale during the summer. Today, Atlanta Magazine published his list of “8 Reasons to Love Avondale Estates.”

Among them:

– Good government

– A strong creative community

– Locally-owned businesses.

– The Museum School

Purdy started Wild Heaven in 2010 and the brewmaster is Eric Johnson. The company says its beer is “designed in the great tradition of European brewing but with a distinctly American creative flair.” The Avondale Estates facility has a 30-barrel brewing system that has its own story, having previously been used by the Georgia-based SweetWater and Terrapin brewing companies.
