Update: Starting at 1pm today (Friday, Sept. 7th) they are now open and serving **limited offerings** while they ramp up production at the new location at 105 Elm Street in downtown Woodstock. Save the date for the Grand Opening October 6th to kickoff our 5th Anniversary celebrations. We are also excited for Queenie’s Southern Restaurant to be their food partner.
Last fall, Reformation Brewery announced that it would add a second location in Woodstock at 105 Elm Street, where they would continue to research and develop their now famous brews, while incorporating a unique consumer experience.
Reformation recently released the renderings for the new building, as well as some information about what customers can expect. Here is an excerpt of their press release:
- When is the expected open date? Our goal is to open early August.
- What progress has been made so far? We’ve cut openings in the old warehouse to bring in light with larger windows and garage doors. Plumbing infrastructure is underway and we will be constructing a small tower addition on the corner in the coming weeks.
- What are key features inside the new space? Research & Development brewery! 2 public bars serving 16 to 24 unique beers at any given time. A large outdoor green space under a historic Elm tree will be adjacent to the brewery. Decks with picnic tables will line overlook the green. Inside you will find three different gathering spaces. The Keeping Room will be a thriving atmosphere where the public meets for beers. A few steps up into the next level will lead to a quieter zone we call the Study, where guests will find booths, sofas, and chairs flanking a second bar. Opposite of the Study is a gathering hall with games, a giant screen, and room for a singer songwriter to perform.
- What’s the capacity? We’re still waiting on the final occupancy from fire officials, but we should be able to serve over 200 guests comfortably at any given time.
- Can people reserve space for private events? We will offer table reservations for a fee for those who want to book a party, but it will not be private.
- What sort of programming is planned for the new space? We will continue our weekly trivia and monthly game night, book club, and yoga events. We will also have live performers and of course plenty of beer & community focused events.
- What will happen to the existing space? Our current space will continue to function as our Foundry where we manufacture products for market distribution.
- What community tie ins are we excited about? We are really excited to activate the Market & Elm district of Woodstock. Main Street Woodstock has long held the public’s attention, but Woodstock’s Backyard is a wonderful spot to hang out. Being across fMarket St rom Elm Street Cultural Arts Village & Stage will generate a lot of partnership opportunities. The walking & biking trailhead for miles of paved trails is at the corner of our location and we look forward to working with our neighboring businesses to engage the public in unique ways.
In the meantime, be sure to still visit Reformation at its original location and try their latest concoction, Alani — a rose inspired ale — and check out their full calendar of events.
