The new biergarden will be about 2,000 square feet with another 1,500 square feet to be added later. The new space will also feature a patio in front once the parking and zoning issues are straightened out. Phase 1 of Zauber’s expansion will feature 90 seats inside and 30 seats outside with more to come.
Zauber plans to continue their tradition of hosting food trucks, and the new space will initially host one food truck per shift, but potentially more if the demand calls for it. Starting Monday, July 8, Zauber will host food trucks at their new space evenings from 4-8pm. Once the taproom opens, Zauber will host lunch food trucks from 11am-3:30pm as well. This week’s lineup includes The Pickled Swine (Monday), Aromaku (Wednesday), Kenny’s Meat Wagon (Thursday), OH! Burgers (Friday) and Ajumama (Saturday, 12-8pm).
“We’ll expand as the crowd dictates,” said Geoff Towne, Zauber’s founder. “We would like to keep a regular weekly lineup so that you always know what’s going to be here.”
Zauber’s new taproom will have their core group of 10 beers on tap at all time, including some seasonals. They’ll also have experimental brews as well as guest beers, so visitors can expect as many as 18 beers on tap.
The growler room and pilot brewery will move to the new space this August if all legal hurdles are passed, and the taproom will open in September/October if all goes to plan. The brewery will arrive sometime this winter, and Zauber hopes to be at full capacity after the first of the year once beer is available from their new brewery.
