Bank Street Brewhouse: Everybody's working for the weekend.

It will surprise absolutely no one to learn that U2’s new release, “No Line on the Horizon,” has become my personal soundtrack for the opening of NABC’s new Bank Street Brewhouse. For me and my Irish contemporaries, they’re acts of reinvention, as I hope these photos illustrate.

They were taken yesterday, as we prepped for entertaining Resch Construction’s workers with a meal and drinks. We’ll be doing a few “soft” nights this week for selected customers, and aiming to be open for lunch and the general public on Friday and Saturday. We're planning on Sunday hours, with Mondays closed.

When I’m absolutely sure all this will be lifting off on Friday, I’ll post opening hours and further details. Thanks for your support.

When is Fellow Brewers Night?

(leaves to check in-box...)

The plan is for the television not to be on all the time.

Cross your fingers. Last night we had soccer on the entire evening sans volume.

Fellow Brewers Night might not be for a few days while we tweak things. We were considering having it after the brewing equipment arrives (fellow brewers help with installation night).

I'm thinking a whole series of Fellow Brewers Nights; 1. help unload and stand the equipment. 2. help with the first CIP and water brews. 3. help brew the first batch(es), etc.

Seriously though, Congratulations and good luck with your opening! The excitement of the start-up is what I miss most from the old DME days.

It is so exciting to see the birth of the Bank St. Brewhouse! You should be proud of seeing through your vision and making it happen!

Since there is food served, will this be kid friendly as the outer rooms of RichO's are?

The New Albanian said...

Yes, all ages at the tables; the bar is divided from the tables by a barrier, making it legal.

I think that is the first time I've seen Josh without a hat on!
