Larry Rolison knows exactly who the customers at his new restaurant, Ye Olde Brothers Brewery, will be. They will have an affinity for craft beer and great food. They will appreciate the quality, vintage appeal of the restaurant which features colonial lighting, Spanish Saltillo tile floors and rocking chairs lining the wrap around porch.
“We’re going to take it slow and make it what the customers want,” Rolison said of the business philosophy.
At first they will offer other craft beers locals have come to love like those from McGuire’s Irish Pub and Sweetwater Brewery Company.
They will also have their own house versions of an IPA, a Porter, a stout, and a Bass Ale. And once they’re really rolling, Rolison hopes to also have bread ales and specialties like pumpkin ales. He also plans to invite local craft beer brewers to come up with their own recipes.
Rolison hopes to cultivate a regular, local customer base when they open in January.
