Wild Heaven Beer Unveils New Dining Concept at Avondale Location: Ginsberg’s Refresher

Embarking on a delicious journey this summer, Wild Heaven Beer is thrilled to announce that its original brewery and taproom location in Avondale Estates is welcoming a new food concept, Ginsberg’s Refresher, on May 30, 2024. Chef Todd Ginsberg, known for Fred’s Meat & Bread, The General Muir, Bocado, and Woods Chapel BBQ, has crafted a new culinary vision specifically to complement the fan-favorite lineup of beer, wine, and margaritas at Wild Heaven Avondale and the casual, patio-oriented vibe of the beloved location.

With a wide array of fun and casual dishes, ideal for enjoying in the relaxed atmosphere Wild Heaven Avondale is known for, Ginsberg’s Refresher will allow customers the convenience of ordering beverages and food in a single transaction from the patio. Beer lovers can now pair their frosty brews with menu items, including a double cheeseburger, an Impossible burger, a fried fish sandwich, a chicken sandwich, and more. For those looking for delicious shareables as they sip, an array of snacks and appetizers, including smoked salmon dip, spicy and numbing chicken wings, oyster sliders, pork and shrimp eggrolls, and a glass noodle salad, are also on the menu. 

Known for dynamic partnerships, Wild Heaven’s collaboration with Chef Ginsberg follows a successful collaboration with Taqueria El Tesoro at its West End location and a similar collaboration planned for its upcoming Toco Hill location with Fox Bros. BBQ. A multi-time James Beard Award nominee, Chef Ginsberg is best known for creating the food programs at The General Muir (Michelin Guide Recommended) and Fred’s Meat & Bread (Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand). 

Nick Purdy, Wild Heaven President, says, “We’ve had such a great experience with Alan Raines and the El Tesoro team at West End and are so looking forward to launching with Fox Bros. BBQ at Toco Hill that we asked ourselves how we could bring this way of evolving the modern brewery concept to our original location. We’ve had a great time hosting pop-ups of up-and-coming chefs over the past few years, and the time has come to do something more permanent. We decided to shoot for the moon and reached out to Chef Todd. We were thrilled when he saw the vision and jumped right in.”

“When the opportunity presented itself to be a part of the Wild Heaven story, I couldn’t resist. This is the way I love to spend time with family and friends. On a patio, drinking cold beers and eating food that you want a beer to drink with. The menu is food that Atlantans love — rich in its diversity from some of my travels and just being an Atlantan for the past 25 years,” says renowned Chef Todd Ginsberg. “Ginsberg’s Refresher is part- a snack shack that you would find by a roadside stand, part casual restaurant, and part sandwich shop. I am looking forward to getting back in the kitchen for a while at Ginsberg’s Refresher. Hope to see you there!”

Revelers are invited to raise a glass and partake in some unbeatable bites at Ginsberg’s Refresher’s grand opening and public launch at Wild Heaven Avondale on Thursday, May 30. Ginsberg’s Refresher will be open Tuesday through Sunday for lunch at 11:30 am and Monday through Sunday for dinner.
