Biggerstaff Brewing Company next year will open in Old Fourth Ward.
The brewpub will be situated in a 5,800-square-foot space, at 521 Edgewood Avenue, according to a press release Tuesday.
Co-Owners Clay and Sarah Davies have partnered with Chef Ryan Smith of Staplehouse (Biggerstaff’s neighbor) to develop the brewpub’s menu.
“We’re ecstatic to have Chef Ryan Smith bring his craft and vision to our menu,” Clay Davies said in the press release.
“He has done an amazing job with Staplehouse. We can’t wait for our customers to experience our craft beers with his award-winning food.”
The menu will feature house-made charcuterie, small plates, sandwiches, salads, and snacks, all of which will be designed to pair with the beers.
John Roberts, a partner in Brewed to Serve Restaurant Group, Inc., which is behind Max Lager’s Wood-Fired Grill & Brewery and The Bold Monk, is acting as the brewery consultant for the project.
Biggerstaff will focus on “balanced IPAs” but its lineup will also feature sours, coffee beers, and other “unique offerings,” such as a smoked pale ale.
In addition, Biggerstaff plans to open in the mornings to serve Intelligentsia direct trade coffee and espresso along with locally-made pastries.
Cole Davies will be heading up the coffee program and has over 10 years of experience in local shops such as Octane, Spiller Park, and Steady Hand Pourhouse.
