Buckle up, there’s a new brewery, restaurant and event space coming to the Village of Orchard Park.
The team behind The Grange Community Kitchen (Hamburg) and West Rose (Ellicottville) is excited to announce a new project in the Village of Orchard Park. Chef Brad Rowell and Caryn Dujanovich have teamed up with Brewer PJ Dunn, formerly of Thin Man Brewery, to develop this exciting new destination.
The business will feature a brewery, restaurant, and bar with seating for approximately 125 guests, as well as a contemporary event hall capable of accommodating large weddings & events. Plans also call for a shaded courtyard with fire pits and comfortable seating. The brewery will maintain several long standing community traditions, with bocce tournaments on their regulation size court and a weekly bingo night.
The restaurant will serve a menu inspired by Belgian and German beer culture, featuring light snacks, a variety of house-made sausages, and Belgian frites. The 20-barrel brewery will produce a rotating range of thoughtful beers to pair with the menu, including bright, hoppy ales and classic European lagers, among others. In addition to traditional beer styles, the brewery will produce specialties such as mixed fermentation and barrel-aged beers. Beer will primarily be offered on draft, with limited quantities available in cans to-go, and at select local establishments and retailers.
Dujanovich is the Lead Designer of the facility, in collaboration with Buffalo firms West End Interiors, Block Club, and Abstract Architecture. The unique space will draw inspiration from the partners’ collective travels around the country, with an emphasis on ambiance and approachability.
The business will be located at 3740 N. Buffalo Street, which was recently purchased by local investor Tom Bestpitch. The building formerly housed American Legion Post 567 and VFW Post 6247. The updated and expanded facility will be nearly 17,000 square feet with ample parking available on-site and nearby. A name and branding for the business are to be announced shortly.
