First off this place is all bar. The bar in this place may be one of the longest in the state. It spans nearly fifty feet and has a beautiful, grand back-bar that's near twenty five feet tall. The refrigeration unit is massive and has room for all the kegs and hundreds of bottles of beer. Twenty-four taps are plumbed right now and there are talks of installing a cask beer engine.
The Beerhive also sports a first in the area, a frosted rail. It's a strip of ice that spans the bar to ensure that drinks maintain the perfect temperature... If desired.
The downstairs area is quite nice with exposed 19th century brick and stone walls. Pool tables and a possible shuffleboard table will occupy most of this space.
Owner Del Vance is working hard on providing the Beerhive's customers with some of the hardest to get craft beers from around the nation. There is a very real possibility that patrons will be enjoying such sought after brands as Stone, Dogfish Head, Ninkasi and Deschutes signature line up. I'll throw up more info on the beers as they become available.
The Beerhive is slated to open near the second week of July. Cheers.
