Does anyone know if Whisk will be meeting friendly? i.e. meet a few people for coffee/pastry to discuss business.

I hope they will keep the current mural, it would be a shame if it was painted over.

@John:

This RTD article seems to say there will be some space to sit down and meet

Coupla more Brewery’s, and we’ll officially be a “Brewkery” district. Seems we’re already a Bakery District. ..

Ps.- Trademarking two (new?) Words: “Brewkery” and “Bougeification”. Maybe the Urban Dictionary will pick ’em up. If you’re not sure what “Bougeification” means, please wake from your slumber…

Hah. Seriously between this and the restaurants scurrying to open before the big bike race, the Bottom/Upper Valley is going to have a lot of new stuff to off. Bougeification for sure.

Sadly, Church Hill or Union Hill has not one brewery. I guess it’s a zoning issue, but I’ve always felt a brewery would do well in CH, especially if we could re-purpose some of the old abandoned church buildings left behind as congregations move out to bigger & fancier locations, all the while letting buildings crumble throughout our neighborhood.

Duke’s Auto is for sale. He wants a lot, but I’ll totally get behind supporting a brewery there as long as they promise to get rid of the billboard advertising crap food and convenience stores. Then again, I don’t think anyone would allow a brewery next to the very active New Light Baptist Church. But I like your abandoned church idea. We can call the new Brewkery “Sanctuary”. 🙂

If I remember correctly, Ardent left the hill area because they couldn’t open a brewery up here. Very sad since Ardent started brewing in a garage in UH and now they’ve put together such a beautiful and vibrant space in Scott’s Addition. Would have loved to that stay up here.

John M – I remember that well, along with the one from this year about the churches donating their vacant buildings & apologizing for the years of decay. Gave me a good laugh, if only it were true!

Kathleen – you are correct that Ardent began here in our neighborhood. I can’t say their exact reasons for leaving the hill, but clearly they are thriving in their new location. What a shame we had to lose them.

Councilwoman Newbille was eager to help Ardent stay in the neighborhood. It was there preference to move to Scott’s Addition.

I agree Bill 3. Our loss.
