Looks Ralph Quillin over at Rooster Brewing in Paris, Ky., is ramping things up. He sent out an e-mail yesterday requesting likes on the Rooster Brewing Facebook page, which indicates he’ll be opening sometime this month.
Here’s the updated “about” copy:
“So why the move from the 700 blk to the 600 blk in Paris. While we own both buildings – the 609 Main Street Location fits our start-up needs and was not in our inventory when we originally envisioned the project.
Almost 1800 sq feet gives us the room we need to house the brewery, tasting/tap room and retail sales in one Main Street space. Add about 1200 sq feet of cellar space (enough for 3000 gallons of barrel aged beer) and two apartment / offices on the second floor AND we’ve got our immediate space needs met WHILE retaining the historic aspect of the historic Paris Downtown building (circa 1880’s) and the street scape.
The space has been completely renovate and it’s turned into an art project – not just a renovation. Custom design and hand crafted stools, benches and tables complement the hand made Ky Coffee Bean wood bar and antique wooden walk-in cooler in the tasting room. Plus the brewery is viable through French doors and the industrial element blends well with the renovated turn of the century mercantile space.
Look for us in March 2014.”
Based on photos, the space he’s building out looks fantastic. Wonder what kind of beer his brewing over there? Follow ’em on Twitter at @roosterbrew and give ’em a like on Facebook when you get a chance.
