GREENVILLE — The owners of the anticipated 57 Brew Pub and Bistro plan to open their doors this fall.
Co-owner Robert Olsen said things are moving along with the development of the new business located at 1310 W. Washington St. (M-57), where the former J.R.’s Roller Castle once stood.
“We are hoping for an October-ish open,” Olsen said.
Although the heat has caused some difficult working conditions, workers from Nelson’s Construction in Greenville have begun working earlier in the day to avoid the higher temperatures.
With the foundation and some frame work already complete, roof truss will begin this morning
“We felt brew pubs were the up and coming thing,” Olsen said. “It brings something unique to the people dining and a place for them to experience a cold beer.”
Olsen said he has always had an attachment to Greenville. He co-owned the Roller Castle for many years beginning in 1980 and later became the sole owner of the property.
“We are incredibly excited to have a brew pub come to Greenville,” said Gae Wolfe, co-executive director of the Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce. “This is an unique dining experience for those brave beer lovers who love to try different flavors of beer.”
Olsen noted there is not another brew pub in the Greenville area, so the addition of the 57 Brew Pub and Bistro will add a new dining choice for food seekers.
“The new building will be a nice enhancement to the west side (of Greenville),” Wolfe said. “I look forward to enjoying the fruits of their labor.”
The Greenville City Council will vote on whether to approve a liquor license transfer from the former J.R. Roller Castle to the 57 Brew Pub and Bistro during tonight’s meeting, which will begin at 7:30 p.m.
Anyone is welcome to attend the city council meeting.
