It took a bit longer than expected for the Wandering Griffin Brewery & Pub to fully live up to its middle name.
But from noon to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9, the pub will host a grand opening for its new brewery and will unveil its first six beers that were brewed in-house.
The pub’s founders are calling the event “Grand Opening 2.0.”
The band Truk will be providing live music Saturday night, and Wandering Griffin chef Isiah Davis will be offering special dishes for the occasion, the brewpub’s founders said on the Wandering Griffin’s Facebook event page.
The pub opened its doors as a restaurant and tap house in late 2016 at 3725 Presidential Drive across from Wright State University.
“You’ve been hearing for a while about how The Wandering Griffin was going to build a brewery and brew fantastic craft beer that this craft beer restaurant has become famous for, and now — FINALLY! — it has come to pass,” Wandering Griffin’s founders said in a release.
The brewery was completed earlier this year, and head brewer David Jennings joined the Wandering Griffin during the spring to begin firing up the new brewing equipment. Plans call for devoting at least half of the pub’s 36 taps to its own beer.
The 10,000-square-foot brewpub boasts three bars and 14 large-screen televisions. The space previously housed a former Quaker Steak & Lube space off Colonel Glenn Highway, near Home Depot.
