Photos: Lee+White warehouse redo is taking shape along Beltline’s Westside Trail

Like the newest Beltline section, West End adaptive-reuse project is now welcoming the general public.

The Beltline’s Westside Trail is but four days old, and it already boasts two new watering holes—with a lot more on tap, in terms of signed food and beverage options.

The bulk of the new offerings are sprouting in a massive, Beltline-abutting warehouse adaptive-reuse called Lee + White in West End, across the street (and elevated MARTA tracks) from Adair Park.

The Westside Trail saw its official ribbon-cutting last week, and so too did Lee + White’s star attraction thus far: Monday Night Brewing’s festive brewery space called The Garage. The production focus here is barrel-aged and sour brews, but most MNB varieties are flowing on tap, too.

MNB’s new outpost at 933 Lee St. SW takes 22,000 square feet of what’s historically been underutilized warehouses (once considered a centralized transportation and railroad hub, just southwest of downtown.)

But the brewery’s a small fraction of the 426,000 square feet developer Stream Realty is making available overall.

Elsewhere on the property, expect Decatur-based Wild Heaven Beer and Banyan Roots Brewing Co., a new project focusing on sour brews, plus a new whiskey outpost for Buckhead-based ASW Distillery.

Also signed: Golda Kombucha, Southern Aged Cheese, Doux South Pickles, and Honeysuckle Gelato. Plus, the United Way.

Have a look around:
