Eating and drinking in Alpharetta is getting better all the time.
Hop Alley Brewpub opened last week on Main Street serving lunch and dinner. Look for a limited opening menu, with a bigger menu and a grand opening party in the coming weeks.
Right now, owner/brewer Brandon Hintz has four house-brewed beers on draft, including his saison, IPA, ESB, and blonde. There’s also a selection of “guest” craft and import offerings, including Liefmans Cuvee Brut, Ayinger Brau Weisse, Weihenstephan Helles, Fullers Bengal Lancer, Ommegang BPA, Boulevard Coffee Ale, and Rince Cochon.

Roswell’s popular Salt Factory Pub is set to open a second location in Alpharetta in mid-July.
Signature menu items include Prince Edward Island steamed mussels, seven onion soup, London broil and pulled pork tacos. Look for burgers made with prime beef sourced from Chicago butcher Meats by Linz, 24 draft beers and a sizable scotch and bourbon collection.
