To see more of my notes, read my pre-opening article here.
Jeremy Pryes told me, “If you’re going to do something, do it 100%. Why half-ass it? If we weren’t in 100%, we wouldn’t be where we are today.”
Read on and learn how Jeremy truly walks the walk when it comes to going all in.
After three years of contracting space in another brewhouse to produce its well-known Miraculum, Pryes Brewing is opening a brewery and taproom! Opening with tried-and-true beer gives the team bandwidth to focus on a taproom that leaves you speechless.
Jeremy Pryes, along with co-owners and a co-brewer, put a hell of a lot of thought (and work) into this taproom, and it’s clear from the moment you walk in the door. Whether it’s the designer using brass inlay to mirror the Pryes logo, or Jeremy setting the window height at a level just low enough to let barrel aging beers peek through, no detail went unnoticed.
This is true of the brewhouse, too. Since the core business is beer, it only makes sense for this established brewer build his space right. And that’s just what Jeremy Pryes did. It starts with a beautifully engineered piece of equipment that saves the brewers from ever hauling a sack of malt, and the process only gets better from there.
While some of the engineering talk went over my head, we should all be impressed with Pryes’ water-saving, time-efficient, well-invested system. Schedule yourself a tour once they’re available, and you might get to hear it from the master himself. (Plus, you’ll get to learn what a hop cannon is, which is hella cool.)
With this super-efficient system, Pryes will be able to get twice the work done in the same amount of time, and with less man power. That means you can expect to see a lot more Miraculum at your favorite bar, plus plenty of beer on tap (and soon canned in liquor stores).
While you should be excited for the beer, Pryes has so much more to offer. There’s house-made italian soda, guest chefs (starting with Red Wagon Pizza), and a space for all sorts to socialize. Plus, the patio is dog-friendly, so that checks off pretty much all my required boxes.
You can expect meticulous drinks and design from Pryes brewing in the coming months. The other fun, you’ll have to discover for yourself.
