Atrium Brewing is celebrating their third anniversary with three large community celebrations in two locations.
In Sept. of 2020 Atrium Brewing opened their doors in the Logan Street Market (1154 Logan St.) in the midst of a pandemic. They didn’t get the luxury of hosting a traditional grand opening. In its second year in business they expanded to a second location in Norton Commons. A couple of the events will benefit non-profit Blessings in a Backpack.
“Time has flown by, and we are immensely grateful to be an integral part of the thriving and dynamic beer community,” said Princeton Hurst, owner of Atrium Brewing. “This year, we proudly unveiled our second taproom in Norton Commons (11205 River Beauty Loop), and the overwhelming support from this remarkable community has exceeded our wildest expectations. To commemorate this milestone, we are organizing a jubilant celebration brimming with exciting events, delightful collaborations with local businesses, and a heartfelt commitment to giving back to the community that has embraced us.”
Here is a list of the September events to commemorate Atrium’s third year.
