The former North Shepherd Dr. garage of Southern Truck Pros, an auto shop that specializes in diesel trucks, appears to be headed for a second career — as a brewery. The Facebook page for a new company called Astral Brewing, showing off the kick-the-can logo portrayed here, lists 4818 N. Shepherd Dr. as its address — with a projected landing in 2018.
Until this past February, that address served as the Southern Truck Pros HQ. The metal warehouse building sits across the street from pickled pork rib tip hotspot B&W Meat Co., on the eastern edge of Shepherd Park Plaza.
Southern Truck Pros’ new location is further north, at 11549 Brooklyn St., east of the Hardy Toll Rd.
