The Scoop: Rockwell Beer Co. announces location in The Grove

Nearly seven months after announcing his new Rockwell Beer Co., co-owner Andy Hille has revealed the location. The brewhouse and tasting room will open at 1320 S. Vandeventer Ave., in spring 2017.

Hille, a former brewer at Perennial Artisan Ales, said he hopes Rockwell will be an anchor for development in this part of The Grove. “We get to be trailblazers on this stretch of Vandeventer,” Hille said. “There’s not really much. It’s pretty industrial.”

The 12,000-square-foot space, which currently houses Dinzler Equipment, will feature a 1,500-square-foot tasting room, a retail space, a large outdoor patio and large functioning garage doors. “We’re going to brew what we want to brew and do things that are balanced and approachable,” he said. Popular recipes will be packaged in 16-ounce four-packs and more experimental, barrel-aged brews will be released in 500-milliliter bottles.

Customers can get a taste of what’s to come at Club Rockwell, weekly “nano-tasting room” events October through December on Wednesdays at TechArtista Coworking Center in the Central West End. “There’s no way around it ­– it takes a very long time to open a brewery,” Hille said. “We need to do as much as we can in the meantime to stay engaged and talk with people.”

Fewer than 10 tickets will be available to each of two Wednesday sessions (5:30 and 7:30 p.m.), where Hille said samples of Rockwell beers and other surprises await attendees. Tickets for the next week’s sessions can be purchased online at 10 a.m. the Thursday before. The first Club Rockwell takes place Oct. 5; tickets go on sale Sept. 29.
