Monkey Wrench Brewing joined the Georgia Department of Economic Development and Partnership Gwinnett to announce its grand opening this year inside the city limits of Suwanee, Georgia. The announcement represents 12-new jobs for the community and will increase to over 20-jobs next year.
Monkey Wrench Brewing is excited to be a part of both the Suwanee and Gwinnett communities,” said Founder and Brewer, Wayne Baxter. “We currently offer 14-unique and tasty craft brews and look forward to our 2021 expansion which will focus on distribution throughout the state.” Monkey Wrench Brewing opened the microbrewery and taproom in January 2020, however, due to COVID-19, grand opening events were delayed. The official grand opening will be held on Thursday, December 3, 2020 from 3:00PM until close in their taproom in Suwanee, GA. Drinks and a food truck will be available in addition to a tour of the facility.
“Monkey Wrench Brewing is a reflection of Georgia’s entrepreneurial spirit, strength and booming craft brewing industry,” said Scott McMurray, deputy commissioner for Global Commerce at the Georgia Department of Economic Development. “I thank the Monkey Wrench team for their resilience and for continuing to create opportunities within their home state.”
“We are happy to officially welcome Monkey Wrench Brewing to Gwinnett County,” said Gwinnett County Commission Chair, Charlotte Nash. “There is always a high demand for craft breweries, so adding another beer manufacturer to our business community continues to elevate our offerings.” Within the 14,000 sq. ft. brewery, Monkey Wrench created multiple spaces to host parties, corporate events, weddings, and rehearsal dinners, including a 1,200 sq. ft. taproom and a 6,400 sq. ft. outdoor beer garden.
“We are thrilled Monkey Wrench Brewing chose Suwanee as its new home,” said Mayor Jimmy Burnette. “We strive to provide our residents with businesses that create a larger sense of community.” Director, Business Retention and Expansion Deven Cason represented Partnership Gwinnett in conjunction with the Georgia Department of Economic Development on the project and supported Monkey Wrench Brewing on finding their first commercial location. “Anytime you can bring people together it helps to create a stronger community,” said Cason. “We have thoroughly enjoyed creating a strong partnership with Monkey Wrench Brewing and are excited to officially introduce them to Suwanee.”
