Stout Brothers To Open Inman Park Store, Planning Nationwide Expansion

'Beer Market' coming soon to Inman Quarter development.

The Stout Brothers, a Smyrna-based "beer market," will be one of the first tenants to open at the forthcoming Inman Quarter development, according to owner Brandon King.

"We're hoping for mid-May," King told What Now Atlanta (WNA) in a telephone conversation Tuesday.

The 1,200-square-foot retail shop of growlers, "crowlers," and local eats, will take street-level space in the development, at 299 North Highland Ave NE.

"Crowlers" are like growlers except the fresh beer is sealed in large aluminum cans versus glass jugs.

The Inman Park beer market will have a "counter pressure fill system" which allows growlers to stay fresh for three months and longer depending on the barley pop, and will serve up local meats, cheeses, sauces, as well as adventurous beers like products from Evil Twins and Brew Dogs, according to King.

King and his team are already in talks with Inman Quarter to host beer festivals that will support "local charities, schools, and the community."

The Stout Brothers' next store could open in Louisville, Kentucky in 2016.

"We're looking to expand as a nationwide brand," King said. "Locations will be specific to their community."

And although King would like to open two to three stores per year, "we're in a hurry, but we're not in a rush."

Where else should King open a Stout Brothers? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

  1. Awesome news! These guys know their beer and support local vendors. Get out and support them. As far as next locations, I'd suggest my basement...

  2. As a regular at their Smyrna location, we love these guys and their approach to beer! Never too hipster or condescending towards craft newbies, they take the time to educate and make suggestions regarding beer styles, food pairings and Skinny jeans. Support these guys in their new digs!
