Melanie Wade, the creator of Golda Kombucha, Thursday in a press released announced her kombucha bar and fermentation marketplace in the Lee + White development will be called Cultured South.

Slated to open late-spring 2018, Cultured South will offer fermented food and beverage products to taste and take home in a 6000-square-foot taproom at the Beltline-adjacent development.

A variety of specials and events will also be offered in the taproom, including new kombucha flavors and product launches, kombucha flights, cocktails and floats, DIY kombucha and fermentation classes, yoga lessons, collaborations and partnerships with other craft beverage breweries, distilleries, and local farmers, and more.

Cultured South is Melanie’s newly formed parent company that includes Golda Kombucha, Pure Abundance Cashew Cheese, and other forthcoming probiotic-rich, fermented fare.

The company has launched a Kickstarter to secure additional funding for the brick-and-mortar project here.

The news marks Golda Kombucha’s third expansion since launching in 2013, as the company moves from a 2,000-square-foot facility on the Eastside and adds an additional 4,000 square feet for production, tastings, and retail.

Cultured South will join other local food and beverage producers in the Lee + White’s adaptive reuse project, including Wild Heaven Beer, Hop City, Monday Night Brewing, American Spirit Works, Doux South Pickles and Honeysuckle Gelato.
