Front Street Brewery opens new taproom

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Front Street Brewery is reopening its event space as a taproom.

The eatery’s Ellie Craig said that throughout the pandemic they’ve had to adapt. They’ve opened the event space to accommodate more customers while keeping dining rooms at 50 percent capacity.

Now, after renovating the space, it’s open to customers for appetizers and drinks. Craig said it’s come in handy, especially since the dining room has been on hour-long waits recently.

“That was wonderful for us to have during the pandemic when we were at 50 percent capacity. But in this sort of post-pandemic era that we are coming upon now, we’re trying to get creative with how to use this space and enhance our guest experience.”

Craig said the taproom was popular this past Memorial Day weekend.
