Duck Foot Brewing Company is expanding to the East Village with a tasting room that will also include a food component. Launched in 2015, the brewery was founded by Matt DelVecchio and Brett Goldstock; Goldstock’s wife, Suzy Pessutti, joins the team as the director of retail operations. Specializing in gluten-reduced beers, Duck Foot’s main production facility in Miramar features a core beer lineup that includes a double white IPA, a blonde ale, a pilsner, and a honey ale. Its designer, Jessica Kovarsky of Studio Aya, also worked on the new East Village location.
Formerly the Parlour, the 1,500-square-foot-space will hold 16 taps pouring year-round beers as well as limited releases not available elsewhere. Opening by mid-May, Duck Foot East Village will serve a gluten-free menu from consulting chef Logan Kendall. Kendall, an avid forager, cooked at Alabama’s James Beard-nominated Acre and was culinary director of Chef’s Roll. Dishes will vary from snacks such as peachwood-smoked olives and cauliflower popcorn to salads ranging from a broccoli salad with smoked soy, sesame, leek, yuzu, ginger, and coconut to a cucumber salad with gazpacho water, corn, green tomato, shaved cucumber, and Aleppo, as well as heartier dishes.
