In 2015 Fatty’s Beer Works launched as a contract brewery, which meant they used other breweries’ facilities to make their beers, like the First Shot IPA. At the time, owner David McLain told The Lost Beers blog that Fatty’s would use the year to finalize a location and equipment for their own brewery.
McLain let Eater know that Fatty’s will have a permanent home by this November at 1436 Meeting St. Formerly a gas station and an ice plant, the building is currently under renovation to open as a brewery and tasting room. McLain says Fatty’s will have 20 beers on tap and will focus on sours, German styles, and other interesting brews.
