More beer is coming to the Beltline.

What’s Now Atlanta reports that plans have been filed for Lingering Shade Lounge, a beer garden to be located at Irwin Street Market at the entrance to the Eastside Trail.

The beer garden will be housed in a 3,503-square-foot space with an additional 1,000-square-foot deck and will serve at least 10 local craft beers on rotating taps. The project was first announced in 2016.

Irwin Street Market, which lost a major tenant in O4W Pizza in 2016, also has plans to use 15 repurposed shipping containers to create a “village” that will house restaurants and shop.

Lingering Shade is the second Beltline-adjacent beer project announced — Former Stone Brewing brewmaster Mitch Steele and beer industry veterans Carey Falcone and Bob Powers are set to open New Realm Brewing Co. at 820 Ralph McGill Ave. The trio announced the new venture in the fall and spent many hours since then coming up with the right name.
