Barker’s In The Mix Brewing & Creamery have announced plans to open a new, second taproom located in the former Black Button Distilling space at 149 Swan Street.

The location is furnished with 12 taps and an outdoor patio, which can fit up to 20 people. The brewery can also accommodate up to 20 people inside as well. In addition to their own beer, they will have cider, mead and guest offerings as well.

The unique brewery/creamery hybrid, owned by brothers Jared and Austin Mesiti, specialize in artisan-frozen custard, including beer-and-wine-infused selections, and milkshakes.

They hope to open this October.
