In the bone-dry days of the early twentieth century, residents of the Phoenix Hill neighborhood could only legally purchase spirits at the Vienna Bar & Restaurant or the Phoenix Hill Brewery. In 1984, The Brewery Restaurant and Bar took up the mantle of these venerable beer barons, conjoining two 120-year-old buildings on Baxter Avenue and opening up shop for nights of revelry and feasts of juicy burgers, hearty pastas, and deli-style sandwiches.
In the back, an antique 5,000-pound bar top from the original Vienna Bar & Restaurant evokes an air of old-timey nostalgia, and fully functional antique beer coolers chill drinks with traditional mule-powered refrigeration methods. Occasional live bands serenade diners and dancers, and the restaurant's mobile unit of caterers delivers payloads of mouthwatering pub fare to distant parties and events.
