Introducing our newest location, EBC Tap+Bottle $ Taqueria. Located downtown Ellicottville NY, a very short walk up the street from our Monroe St. Brewery, Tap+Bottle $ Taqueria is an authentically influenced taqueria, inspired by Mexican al pastor dining, as well as a combination brewpub and carry out bottle shop.
With support from the Brewer’s Association ‘Together We Brew’ initiative, Ellicottville Brewing created a collaboration and partnership with Falling Piano Brewery in the heart of Mexico City. During several trips, EBC owner, Peter Kreinheder and head brewer, Dan Minner discovered street tacos and inspiration for a new project began. ‘Mexico was the missing culinary component in Ellicottville’ says Kreinheder. ‘Ironically, taquerias make up one of the fastest growing restaurant segments in the U.S.’ The kitchen features a custom-built-to-order vertical rotisserie from Mexico to cook the al pastor meats.
In addition to the Mexican-inspired food, Kreinheder wanted to design a store to focus on New York craft beers as well as artisan wines and spirits. In the first six months, they will feature craft beers from the Hudson Valley and Five Boroughs of New York City, beers rarely found in Western New York. The house beer will be Chilanga, a blueberry hibiscus agave ale brewed in collaboration with their friends from Mexico City, Falling Piano. There will be several Mexican style beers brewed for this location.
