Coming to 14 Avenue B: East Village Brewery and Beer Shop

14 Avenue B is on tonight's CB3/SLA docket. (Read the CB3/SLA history of this space here.)

And the proprietors have outlined their very specific plans for 14 Avenue B with a letter and menu posted on the front door of the building. (By the way, as you may recall, Discovery Wines is moving next door to 16 Avenue B in the coming weeks.)

Here's the letter — not sure how well you can read it here...


"Our goal is to produce an in-house, award-winning craft beer to be consumed and sold on premises, complimented by a fine cocktail and wine selection paired with a foodie restaurant with a steak-based menu.

"We additionally plan to create a retail space similar to the Beer Room component of Whole Foods in order to offer craft beers and beer-related dry goods to neighborhood enthusiasts."

And here is their proposed menu...

Are these the same owners as Prime Meats in Carroll Gardens, or did they just rip off their menu?

Hahahha, that's the Prime Meats Menu word for word.

So, a brewery or brew-pub? Could be interesting.

if that is the case YAY! i love Prime Meats and would love to walk down the block rather than trek to carroll gardens for even a slight imitation of. that said where can one get a good steak hereabouts? and what's funny is that there isn't a brew pub in the ev strange as it may seem. better that than 10 cent wings, riding bulls and keg parties..........

Yay?

Copying a menu is embarrassing and lazy. You might as well buy a hot dog from around the corner because the food is probably shitty if they can't even write a menu themselves.

It's the guy from Superdive so I imagine it will be just as classy an establishment.

For background, I just looked up this space and over two years ago a lounge named "Boteco" was supposed to open there but never did; before that it had mainly short-lived lounges as tenants: anybody remember Curious Purple, Climax, Delft, The Street and Cachette? Delft was the only one in the bunch to stay open longer than 1 year.
