Nappy Roots gears up to open brewery in Atlanta’s Castleberry Hill

Atlanta-based, Grammy-nominated group Nappy Roots is expanding in the brewing industry as they prepare for the launch of their microbrewery in Atlanta’s Castleberry Hill.

The craft brewery and taproom, Atlantucky, will be opening early 2021 at 170 Northside Drive SW, a representative for the group tells AJC.

“After more than two decades in the public eye, the group has been exploring new business ventures that allow them to expand their reach,” according to a press release.

Making their brewing debut in 2017 with the relase of a pale ale called Front Porch at the Atlanta-based Monday Night Brewing, the group looks to continue their brewing success all while paying homage to Atlanta and Kentucky.

The group also released Watermelon, Chiquen and Gritz, which is a golden ale with watermelon that is named after their 2002 hit album and Humdinger, which was released in 2018 in a partnership with Monday Night Brewing. Their previous release was Kentucky Mud with a partnership with Arches Brewing in Hapeville, GA in 2019.

Atlantucky will be a new space that allows for mass production of their beers and will serve as a secon home to the group members.

“Fans can expect to see us at Atlantucky on a regular basis,” said Skinny Deville, one of the band’s co-founders in a prepared statement. “If we’re not traveling, there’s no place we’d rather be. The vibe will be a casual and relaxed place to enjoy a cold beer and chill with friends and family.”
