West Sixth Brewing announced Tuesday that it will open West Sixth Greenroom, a smaller site including a nanobrewery, at 109 West Main Street.
The offshoot of West Sixth Brewing craft brewery and taproom, now celebrating its fourth anniversary, will brew specialty beers just for the Greenroom as well as “fun experimental beers we can’t currently do at our existing facility,” according to a news release.
Ben Self, one of the founders of West Sixth Brewing, said that West Sixth wasn’t looking to open a taproom downtown, but Kristy and Steve Matherly, owners of Sunrise Bakery at 111 West Main, approached the West Sixth owners with the opportunity.
At first, the Greenroom will be open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from late afternoon until past midnight. It will offer some basic food options from Sunrise and will work with Lexington food trucks. The Greenroom also will be available for private events.
The West Sixth Greenroom is expected to open in time for Lexington Craft Beer Week in May.
“We are so excited that we have more life on our block with like-minded community people,” said Kristy Matherly.
The Greenroom will introduce West Sixth to travelers, tourists and festival-goers, “and encourage them to come out and see the full production facility while they’re here in town,” Self said.
