Young Hickory opened bright and early this morning, and it might just be your new favorite place. Clay Summers, a local graphic designer, partnered with Filter to update the 65-seat coffee house and add the essential 30th Street touch, craft beer, which is available in cans to drink on-site.
Summers says that he wanted to keep things simple and streamlined, which extends from the uncluttered, vintage-inspired design to their beverage program; they'll source exclusively from Bird Rock Coffee Roasters and Tea Gallerie.
On the beer side, Ballast Point is currently the only local brewery represented on the list, but Summers plans to stock Modern Times Beer and Hess Brewing as soon as their cans are filled. Pastries come fresh from Bread & Cie and a panini press melts a variety of grilled cheese sandwiches.
Young Hickory's hours are 7 a.m. to midnight, all week. A 5 to 6 p.m. happy hour features $1 off all beer cans, and look for their signature special, a shot of espresso paired with a rotating beer, something roasty like a stout or porter.
