Denizens Brewing Co. will open Saturday, May 25, at Riverdale Park Station.
The Silver Spring-based brewery will open a 12,000-square-foot production house and taproom across from Whole Foods as its second location.
“This new location will allow us to maintain and even improve upon our standards of quality at a much larger scale, which means putting pints of Denizens beer into more hands,” said co-founder Jeff Ramirez, who serves as chief brewing officer.
The location will include a 150-seat taproom and a 9,000-square-foot production space, which will brew Denizens’ four core beers: Southside Rye APA, Born Bohemian Pilsner, Third Party Tripel and Lowest Lord ESB.
While the taproom will enhance Denizens’ reputation as a destination for beer-drinkers, the production space will allow it to build out its customer base, selling more wholesale to local distributors.
Co-founder Julie Verratti, who serves as chief brand officer, said the brewery matched out on its production capacity three years ago and has had to turn down retail customers at bars, restaurants and liquor stores.
Denizens’ beer can currently be found everywhere from Busboys and Poets and MOM’s Organic Market to Nationals Park.
Executive Chef James Marroquin has planned a menu featuring globally inspired dishes that have been designed with specific beer pairings in mind.
The taproom will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Sunday through Thursday, and to 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Lunch will be offered Monday through Friday and brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
