Lyons Bridge Beef, at 1506 Lyons Bridge Road SW in Cave Spring, has set Saturday for the grand opening of The Beef Barn. Between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., guests are invited to see the company’s retail side, featuring steaks, sauces, seasons/salts and peppers, salad dressings and cooking/grilling accessories. They specialize in “all-natural, antibiotic-free pasture-raised Angus beef” and all products are aged 21 days. You can get a better look at what’s available online (start here) and free delivery is also available in much of Northwest Georgia.
