The Hill is about to get sudsier as 2nd Shift Brewing announced that after a three-year search, the brewery has leased a building at 1601 Sublette Ave., which will house both production facilities and a tasting room. The new facility will be open for a preview day on Thursday, June 9, and the brewery hopes to fully open in late June or early July.

Co-owners Libby and Steve Crider are moving the brewery from its current location in New Haven, Missouri. “We wanted to be central and be a part of the beer community,” said Libby Crider.

Located amid local favorites like Perennial Artisan Ales, Urban Chestnut Brewing Co., 4 Hands Brewing Co. and more, 2nd Shift plans to use the 18,000-square-foot space to increase its brewing capacity, have options for future packaging and help thirsty patrons put a face with the name behind the brew.

“I can’t wait to have a tasting room where I can be face-to-face with people,” Crider said. “We put ourselves behind the beer, and now people can come to us, meet us and see the passion behind our beer.”

In addition to a more personal experience with 2nd Shift’s offerings, customers can look forward to small-batch brews. “We’ll be able to do more of what we’re (brewing) now to start,” Crider said. “But once we have our feet under us, we can play with one-off brews just for the tasting room.”

Once open, the tasting room will be able to seat between 150 and 200 guests with an additional 50 to 75 in the Biergarten. 2nd Shift will pair with Tilford Restaurant Group (which owns Mission Taco Joint, Milagro Modern Mexican and Tortillaria) to provide food; specific dishes are still in development. The new brewery will have five guest taps featuring local brews from around the area as well as a “small, really boutique” wine list curated by Libby Crider, a certified sommelier.
