Meanwhile Brewing Co., created by Will Jaquiss and Nao Ohdera, will open in Southeast Austin on Oct. 16, according to a news release by the business.
Located at 3901 Promontory Point Drive, Austin, on a 3.7-acre property, Meanwhile Brewing will include an indoor tap room, a live music stage, an outdoor playground and fields for games. Three food trucks— Craft Woodfire Pizza, Garbo’s and Pueblo Viejo—will also be on site.
With more brews under development, the tap room will initially open offering six of their beers, including pale ales, a Kolsch and an ESB, or extra special bitter, English-style pale. The brewery will also offer frozen drinks, cocktails and boozy seltzers at their bar, according to the news release, and it will have coffee drinks available.
Safety precautions are being put in place due to the ongoing pandemic. Indoor seating will be limited, although patrons will be allowed to use the outdoor grounds. The playground and soccer field will also be closed initially, according to the release.
Jaquiss and Ohdera both previously worked with Portland Oregon-based Breakside Brewery.
“We wanted a place that people felt equally at home bringing their laptop and having a cup of coffee in the morning as they would meeting friends for a fresh air lunch, or for a beer in the afternoon with their pup and maybe hanging around to see some live music in the evening,” Jaquiss said in the release. “The recent pandemic has slowed our plans a bit, but we hope to roll out all of the full features of this place as soon as it is safe to do so.”
The project originally broke ground last November. www.meanwhilebeer.com
