Queenie’s Now Open Next To Reformation’s Woodstock Location

I’ve never been more proud to be Cherokee and north Georgia born and raised.

“I first met Zach Kell when he opened Downtown Kitchen in Canton and it was the best local dining experience I’d had in my life.” Reformation Brewery CEO/cofounder Spencer Nix admits. “Zach remained one of my closest confidants to bounce ideas and to taste new brews. He’s been quick to stand with every wild idea.” 

Nix went on to say, “For me building a business is all about relationships. Zach Kell went so far as to host a private Reformation Brewery tasting at Downtown Kitchen in 2012 to introduce our beers to his community before we ever shipped to the market. I knew then it was the start of something special between two local small businesses.” 

“I couldn’t be more honored and excited to work next to Zach Kell and family to deliver truly unique experiences for the good of our community. I’ve never been more proud to be Cherokee and north Georgia born and raised.”



Owned and operated by Zach Kell in Canton, Georgia, Queenie’s has been announced as a co-tenant in the building that holds Reformation Brewery’s at 105 Elm Street, Woodstock, GA.

The new brewery space comes to Woodstock as a research and development facility and includes 2 beer bars, large deck, and outdoor beer garden in Woodstock’s Backyard.



After completing their separate construction project, Queenie’s will serve lunch, dinner, and snack offerings designed to pair well with Reformation beers as the separate businesses will share common areas for customers to gather. The menu will include simple, southern foods like smoked meats (pork, chicken, beef brisket, ribs), bbq tacos, and beer snacks (poutine, pork pies, other bites).

Zach Kell is no stranger to serving the community. Founder of Queenie’s Southern Restaurant & Bar, Goin Coastal Seafood, and The Downtown Kitchen, Kell says “It has been exciting to watch Reformation grow leaps and bounds all while keeping true to themselves and their customers. We are very excited to create something unique together by growing from downtown Canton to Queenie’s BBQ in downtown Woodstock.”
