Gettin' Funky with SBC's new spin-off, The Cellar
Brewery lovers rejoice: You’re in for a treat. Wednesday will mark the grand opening of Springfield Brewing Company’s latest concept, The Cellar, which will function as both a tap room and brew pub with quick, creative fare. News to you? It’s news to us, too. Here’s how it happened: Late last summer, SBC purchased local distiller Missouri Spirits, as well as the company’s brick and mortar space on Walnut St. The original plan was to absorb the distillery and expand SBC’s arsenal. That’s still happening! As for the physical space, the plan was to make it into an event center for weddings and other celebrations. That was scratched, and The Cellar will now be a hub for area creatives to come together, hang out, and munch on some good food, says SBC Director of Operations Todd Schade. The menu features intriguing shareables, such as black truffle popcorn with portobello jerky and sliders served on house-made funnel cake buns. Brew Co. beers will be available on draft and by the can, and cocktails, too—we’ve got our eye on the vodka, peach and kiwi nectar Metamorphosis Tea!
