The first local brewery with a full menu will host a ribbon cutting ceremony today at 4:30 p.m. Brewing Master Zach Harts’ 12 beers will be available during the celebration at Heist Brewery in historic Highland Park Mills in NoDa.
Beer lovers can choose among a Light Lager, i2PA, Red, Hefeweizen, Pale Ale, Oatmeal Stout, seasonal brews, and one of several rotating Belgian taps, all available by pint, mugs, growlers, and flights. Chef Rob Masone describes his menu as “Twisted American Cuisine," which paints a picture of his mad scientist concoctions such as Himalayan Shrimp Stix (Asian shrimp covered in lemon-wasabi cotton candy) and Kurobuta Pork Belly Corn Dogs (pork belly braised with milk and honey and barbecue sauce made with root beer).
If you can't make it out tonight — yes, we know this is last minute — head out on Friday for their grand opening celebration. More info on the party shenanigans, food samplings and live entertainment on their Facebook event invite.
Heist Brewery is located at 2909 N. Davidson St., Suite 200.
