Brewery and Coffeehouse Concept to Open in Orange Village this April
Saucy Brew Works announces the opening of a new location in Pinecrest – Cleveland’s newest mixed-use district located in Orange Village, Ohio. This 142-seat taproom is located at 400 Park Ave., Suite 169, and features a small brewing operation, 20 draft lines, and a coffeehouse. The taproom, with both indoor and outdoor seating, will celebrate its grand opening in early April 2020.
Similar to the flagship Ohio City brewery and brewpub, owned and operated by Brent Zimmerman and Eric Anderson, the new location will allow all east side craft beer lovers to enjoy Saucy Brew Works close to home. Though the Pinecrest taproom will not boast an in-house kitchen, Saucy Brew Works will offer light fares and the ability to order-in through outside vendors.
A new feature that differs from the craft brewery’s original scope of offerings in Ohio City is the initial launch of Saucy Coffee at the Orange Village location. Saucy Brew Works plans to introduce a craft coffeehouse next to the taproom. Guests will be able to move between the spaces once inside. Saucy Coffee offerings include a single-origin house roast, pour overs, espresso, and a specialty menu inspired by Saucy beers such as What’s His Nuts, a Vanilla Stout with Peanut Butter and Coffee, and Modern Crimes, a Toasted Coconut Porter. They also plan to package their house roast.
"We are over-the-top excited to bring our fresh liquid to the East Side of Cleveland!” said Brent Zimmerman, CEO and Co-owner of Saucy Brew Works. “We felt as if we were neglecting our “east side” friends, which isn’t a nice thing to do. Pinecrest here we come, 20 fresh beers on tap daily!"
The expansion in Pinecrest is part of the brewery’s overall development plans with three additional restaurants opening by the end of 2021. These new locations include a Brewpub in Columbus’ Harrison West and Detroit’s Brush Park neighborhoods, and a larger event space and brewery set to open in Independence neighboring Top Golf. Saucy Brew Works has been experiencing incredible growth following a new partnership with Heidelberg Distributing Co., announced in November 2019, in addition to House of LaRose who distributes in nine counties surrounding Cleveland.
“Pinecrest is thrilled to welcome Saucy Brew Works to our award-winning district,” said Rob Clarke, general manager, Pinecrest. “This emerging brand quickly built a strong reputation for itself in Cleveland, and we believe it will be the perfect complement to our growing community of premier dining and entertainment destinations. Plus, the launch of Saucy’s new coffeehouse concept will be another first for our district and an exciting addition for many of our guests.”
