Rock Bottom Brewery Bottoms Out In Buckhead
After months of speculation, Rock Bottom Brewery in Buckhead has closed. Though I originally thought the 05 Peachtree development construction would have killed them long ago, the brewery closed a couple weeks ago and will reopen in July as a Gordon Biersch. The building is now boarded is and there is to be a complete renovation of the space and new amenities added ahead of their reopening. Though Rock Bottom seemed to have a developed a niche clientele in the uber competitive Buckhead sub-market, Gordon Biersch is the growth brand and the parent company, so the decision to re-brand was made. This will he second Atlanta area location for Gordon Biersch, the first, on Peachtree in Midtown. Repeat Atlanta!
