A new brewery and bottle shop is traipsing into Eastern Market imminently. A beer hall dubbed Lagerhaus No. 5 is scheduled to open at 1529 Adelaide in the coming weeks serving German-beers with a Hungarian and German food, Crain’s reports.
Villages Bier & Weingarten co-founder Curt Wimmer, former Axle Brewing Co. and King Brewing Co. brewer Scott King, and paramedic James Ryder are behind the 80-seat brewpub project, which will make beer using a 22-barrel system. A beer shop on site will carry around 100 local and European beers.
While some breweries across the region are feeling the crunch from competition and challenges with self-distribution, Eastern Market has experience something of a brewing and fermentation renaissance in the past few years.
Eastern Market Brewing Co., located just a stone’s throw from Lagerhaus No. 5, was the first brewery to operate in the popular food neighborhood in more than 30 years when it opened in 2017. The brewery plans to expand and takeover the Axle Brewing Co. Livernois Tap this winter. Nearby, Detroit City Distillery operates a successful bar and spirits business and earlier this year, the city’s first winery, Detroit Vineyard’s opened a tasting room and production facility on Gratiot. A brewery was also rumored to be part of a plan to redevelop the Detroit Water and Sewerage building.
Stay tuned for more updates on Lagerhaus No. 5 as the project moves forward.
