The Revival, the name for the second go-round of last year's Untapped beer garden at the Tennessee Brewery, will launch on Thursday, April 9th and will be open every Thursday through Sunday for lunch and dinner until May 31st.
The Revival event has been granted a city beer permit. Craig Blondis of Central BBQ will act as the food and beverage partner, and he'll be responsible for coordinating craft beer and food truck offerings.
“Guests can expect a daily variety of locally sourced and beer garden-inspired food options,” Blondis said. “We’ve got a few great surprises in store that are being brewed up at this very moment.”
Drivers along Tennessee Street may have noticed the iconic "Invest in Good Times" graffiti has been covered with a plywood barrier. The building's new owner Billy Orgel says fans of the painting, which is apparently named Professor Catfish, need not worry.
“Rest assured, Professor Catfish is being preserved and we are finding a location for him inside the brewery where his sage ‘Invest in Good Times’ advice can be enjoyed by all of The Revival’s guests and visitors," Orgel said. "That window will be replaced, bringing street-level transparency and light to some new activities we are planning for that room."
Orgel purchased the building last year, months after the highly successful "Untapped" beer garden brought attention to the historic brewery's plight. The building's previous owner had plans to demolish the building. Orgel plans to renovate the structure and turn it into apartments.
