Reformation Brewery Canton

Reformation Brewery’s Canton location is the home to a warehouse and production site as well as a taproom for tastings and special events.

Reformation Brewery’s new location at The Mill on Etowah is now open limited hours for previews of the space, with a grand opening on the calendar for June 7-9.

Located at 141 Railroad Street, Suite 500, the more than 20,000 square foot space is in a mixed-use area still under construction along the Etowah River with future access to nearby shopping, restaurants, river use and green space. Serving as the brewery’s main production facility and warehouse, the new location also highlights a public taproom and private event space.

A soft opening is scheduled for Saturday at 8 p.m. with a tour and limited tasting at 9 p.m. guided by CEO and co-founder Spencer Nix.

“This is really just a first look, and a chance to introduce ourselves to the community in Canton,” Nix said. “It will be a few weeks before we’re ready to fully open up our taps, but we wanted to share our excitement and this beautiful space in the interim.”

Reformation’s opening marks the first business at The Mill on Etowah Project. The brewery previously had production and storage space at its old Woodstock location on Arnold Mill Road, but has now moved those operations to the mixed-use Canton development. The Canton taproom will be home to similar programming and events that community members have been participating in at the new Woodstock location, a spokeswoman for the brewery said.

Reformation had outgrown its previous warehouse and production facility, so the new location provides more space and room to grow.

“Canton has all the historic bones to create something unique to our state and region. We are fortunate to have the chance to participate in the restoration and transformation already started. We hope The Mill on Etowah, anchored by Reformation Brewery, will become a destination for all who wander into north Georgia and a place to celebrate its wonderful gifts,” said Grant Schmeelk, the developer.

Closed on Sundays to start, Reformation Brewery’s location in Canton will be open with limited hours and offerings at the following schedule:

Saturday, May 4, 8 p.m. — close

Sunday, May 5, closed

Friday, May 10, 5-11 p.m.

Saturday, May 11, 3-11p.m.
