Katie Shanks and Emily Pack are hostesses for the Blue Ridge Brewing Co.
The ABC license was received Friday that enabled the brewpub to serve drinks from its fully-stocked bar.
Staff at Blue Ridge Brewing Co. served loyal customers in a soft opening Monday evening.
Bob Hiller, owner of the brewpub 308 Trade Street, said the restaurant received its alcohol permit Friday, trained staff over the weekend and held a soft opening Monday night for loyal customers.
The restaurant and menu mirrors the former Greenville restaurant except for The Summit Bar, featuring rooftop dining. “It’s the same setup and same menu,” Hiller said. The décor, graphics and beer names all reference outdoor adventures.
Hiller said the lunch menu will be announced soon.
Positions for all shifts remain available. “Some of the staff didn’t follow us over here from Greenville,” Hiller said. To inquire about positions visit the brewpub or email [email protected].
Hiller is credited with the first brewpub to feature craft beer in downtown Greenville in 1995. He is also mentioned as an impetus to the city’s economic redevelopment.
Blue Ridge Brewing has also been the impetus for the 300 block of Trade Street to have all its buildings leased.
Still Water Grill and Catering, owned by sisters-in-law Connie and Susie Bakeman, announced Friday it will occupy 304 Trade Street and has tentatively scheduled to open in August.
