“We’re ecstatic to have Chef Ryan Smith bring his craft and vision to our menu,” Clay Davies said of the partnership in a prepared statement. “He has done an amazing job with Staplehouse. We can’t wait for our customers to experience our craft beers with his award-winning food.”
The beer lineup will focus on IPAs but will also feature sours, coffee beers and other offerings such as a smoked pale ale. In addition, Biggerstaff plans to open in the mornings to serve Intelligentsia coffee and espresso along with locally-made pastries. Cole Davies, who previously worked at local coffee shops Octane (now Revelator), Spiller Park and Steady Hand Pourhouse will head up the coffee program.
