A BREWING BUSINESS: Red Yeti Brewing Co. cuts the ribbon on downtown brew pub



In addition to converting the inside of the building, which is expected to seat 80 to 100 people, Brandi said she is working with the city to create a patio for the restaurant. However, in order to create an outdoor patio, the business would need to claim a parking spot or two along Spring Street and bump out the sidewalk around the outdoor seating area.

To help pay for the renovations to the building, Red Yeti is seeking $20,000 through the city’s redevelopment commission to convert the interior and another $10,000 for exterior renovations. The money would require equal matching funds from the business.

Brandi also added in the next few weeks, Red Yeti plans to launch a kickstarter campaign to help pay for “all the extras in the brew pub.” The money from the kickstarter campaign would help pay for things like upgrades to brewing equipment or additional brewing barrels.

“I’m so excited,” Brandi said. “We’re new in town and just to have this support already is amazing to me.”



During the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the interest the papered-up windows has already garnered was evident.

More than 50 city officials, local business owners and others gathered along Spring Street to see the future brew pub’s official announcement.

“This is obviously what we envisioned — the whole idea of the walking bridge was to attract new people to downtown,” said Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore. 

But the Ronaus did not know about the planned Big Four pedestrian and bicycle bridge ramp that will land nearby. They also didn’t know about the corridor that is being created along Chestnut Street that will lead people from the bridge into Jeffersonville’s downtown historic district and to the corner where their restaurant will sit.

“We didn’t even know about that when we decided to take this place,” Paul said.
