Lots and lots of smiles this past Wednesday night as Mandi and Taylor Smack rolled out the soft re-open of the newly renovated South Street Brewery. The duo bought the Charlottesville landmark back in the Summer of 2014. “I was a brewer there for five years and it is still near and dear to my heart. Plus, we’re excited to have a bastion of beer making and a great brewpub environment right in downtown Charlottesville,” says Taylor, who worked at South Street from 2002 until 2007 when he, his wife Mandi opened Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton.

“We’d just like the folks who have loved South Street all these years to give us a shot when we open; no one knows how important this brewery has been in our lives, and we feel honored to carry it forward after the amazing 16 years Jacque Landry and Fred Greenewalt created there. We are confident our passion will be contagious once people see the great, fun things we will be doing with South Street Brewery,” Taylor says.

Congrats guys! Way to Go!
