Ellicottville Brewing Company is excited to introduce their newest location, EBC Tap + Bottle & Taqueria. Located in downtown Ellicottville, a short walk from their Monroe St. brewery, featuring authentically inspired Mexican fare, brewpub, & bottle shop.
With support from the Brewer’s Association ‘Together We Brew’ initiative, Ellicottville Brewing created a collaboration and partnership with Falling Piano Brewery in the heart of Mexico City. During several trips, EBC owner, Peter Kreinheder and head brewer, Dan Minner discovered street tacos and inspiration for a new project began.
“Mexico was the missing culinary component in Ellicottville,” says Kreinheder. “Ironically, taquerias make up one of the fastest growing restaurant segments in the U.S.”
The kitchen features a custom-built-to-order vertical rotisserie from Mexico to cook the al pastor meats.
In addition to the Mexican-inspired food, Kreinheder wanted to design a store to focus on New York craft beers as well as artisan wines and spirits. In the first six months, they will feature craft beers from the Hudson Valley and Five Boroughs of New York City, beers rarely found in Western New York. The house beer will be Chilanga, a blueberry hibiscus agave ale brewed in collaboration with Falling Piano. There will be several Mexican style beers brewed for this location.
Tap + Bottle & Taqueria is now open daily from 11:30am-9pm (closed Wednesdays). There is a tasting bar and seating for 40. They offer beer by the bottle, draft or six-pack, along with delicious hand-crafted cocktails. Please join them Friday, November 20 to help them celebrate their grand opening.
