CraftHaus Brewery debuts its new taproom in the Arts District, filled with taps devoted to its own brews and guest spots.
The taproom from the Henderson-based brewery, which just celebrated its fifth anniversary, features 1,800 square feet with a bar and seating area decked out in concrete, marble, and CraftHaus’ green designed by Ryan and Yanina Allord of RADstudio. A custom 24-foot mural by artist Donovan Fitzgerald features a Jubilee!-inspired showgirl on one wall, while a patio sits outside.
Owners Wyndee and Dave Forrest feature 24 taps with 16 devoted to CraftHaus brews, four guest beers, cider, Vesta Cold Brew coffee on Nitrogen, and white wine. The food menu includes spent grain soft pretzels with beer cheese or beer bacon jam made with CraftHaus beer, as well as dishes from chef James Trees of Esther’s Kitchen, carried across the street. CraftHaus plans to debut its newest beers at the Henderson brewery and the Arts District taproom at the same time.
New beer releases will be simultaneous at both the Henderson brewery and Arts District taproom. Customers can purchase six packs and growlers.
CraftHaus Arts District celebrates its grand opening on Saturday, Sept. 28, with a ribbon-cutting and grand opening party at 4 p.m. Customers can get a free 4-ounce pour of CraftHaus beer, and participate in a collector’s pin give-away, meet-and-greet with owners and brewers, specialty beer tapping of the Arts District Sour with prickly pear and hibiscus, and a special food menu.
CraftHaus Arts District, 197 E. California St. Open Sunday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to midnight.
