New Balter Beerworks Partners with Legacy Parks

Balter Beerworks, the new brewery and restaurant at the corner of Jackson Avenue and Broadway in the former BP station is now open and has chosen Legacy Parks Foundation as their community partner.  During the grand opening week, a percentage of proceeds will be donated to to Legacy Parks, and each month a different beer will be designated the Legacy Beer of the Month, and a percentage of those sales will also support our work.

“Becoming a part of the Downtown Knoxville community is important to us, and we’re fortunate to have formed a mutually-beneficial relationship with Legacy Parks Foundation,” said Blaine Wedekind, founder of Balter Beerworks. “We share in their mission of leaving East Tennessee better than we found it, and hope to continue our friendship for many years to come.”

The Balter Beerworks location puts them in position to be a rally point for group activities like bike rides or runs. As a gathering spot, Legacy Parks and other outdoor organizations can now take advantage of the atmosphere and location of Balter Beerworks to help increase the recreational opportunities in the West Jackson Avenue corridor.

Balter Beerworks is a local concept created by Knoxvillians and beer enthusiasts Blaine Wedekind and brewer Will Rutemeyer. The Balter Beerworks experience is designed to be different from the typical “brewpub” and includes a comfortable, upscale atmosphere complete with front porch dining, a breezeway, and an outdoor beer garden. Balter provides fresh, locally sourced food, handcrafted beer made on-site, as well as unique cocktails and a quality wine selection.
