Owned and operated by two couples, Eleanor Stewart and Ryan Parfitt (head brewer), alongside Anique Ross and Federico (Fede) Stucchi, Luppolo (which translates to hops in Italian) will offer a wide variety of classic and innovative/experimental beer styles.
At 4,800 square feet, Luppolo will boast a tasting room with seating for 67. That’s where they’ll pour Belgian Rye IPA’s, ales, saisons, and more.
Seasonal, small-batch, and cask offerings will also be available. “We want to keep things fresh and interesting,” says Ross.
“We are a lounge-based brewery (no canning or bottling to start) and plan to sell the vast majority of our beer on site with the occasional keg sale to restaurants and bars around the city,” elaborates Ross.
A retail component will also be on site, meaning that beer enthusiasts will be able to drop in to get a growler fill. Tastings and tours will also be available.
In terms of food, patrons can expect to find simple, good quality Italian fare on the menu — think Italian charcuterie and cheese, focaccia, olives, piadine (Italian flat bread sandwiches), and more.
