Back when Nick Purdy launched his “Wild Heaven” craft beers in September, it was pretty well known that while the beers were brewed by a contract brewer in South Carolina, Purdy’s long-term goal was to open a craft brewery right here in Decatur.
Apparently that dream might not be as far off.
In a recent article on Patch, Purdy says he’s already in the process of executing plans to open a permanent brewery in Decatur “as soon as 2012”. He won’t give up the specific location, but says it’s near the old Paste offices at East Decatur Station and that he’s already “deep into the process” of making it a reality.
In terms of what he’d like Wild Heaven to most be like, Purdy cites breweries like Dogfish Head, Allagash, Avery, Russian River and Stone.
A “Brew Masters“-type establishment in Decatur?
Even a casual beer-geek such as myself knows that could be pretty awesome.
