After recently moving and expanding their Little Italy location, which now includes a tap room, Bottlecraft has finally secured the permitting to allow the bottle shop to serve beer at their North Park outpost, which has been in operation since early 2013.
The store can now open beer (and wine) bottles for on-site drinking with a corkage fee — $1.50 for bottles under 500ml and $2.50 for bottles over 500ml. Draft beer is also in the works, via four taps.
Venissimo Cheese, which moved a small satellite location into the shop last summer, is serving cheese and meat plates, sandwiches and small snacks; more food options are on the way.
About 12 to 15 seats will be available indoors, and Bottlecraft may look into being able to serve beer on the sidewalk patio.
