Plans announced for Suwanee's first brewery and taproom

By AccessWDUN Staff

The Suwanee Downtown Development Authority plans to bring the City of Suwanee its first brewery and taproom.

StillFire Brewing, a 20-barrel brewery and taproom, is set to begin construction in May near Town Center Park.

The co-founders – which include the owners of Suwanee Magazine, Suwanee Beer Fest, Gwinnett Beer Fest, and Suwanee Wine Fest – plan to convert the soon-to-be-vacated Gwinnett County Fire Station #13 into a taproom that will feature a selection of 18 original craft beers on tap.

“Every year at the beer fest, people tell me that it is their favorite day of the year, and it became obvious to us that the community with the largest craft beer fest in Georgia needed a year-round craft brewing experience,” said co-founder Randall Veugeler.

An outdoor patio and an adjoining city-owned green space will allow customers to bring their children and dogs to participate in a number of activities.
