NABC suspends food service at brewhouse in downtown New Albany

Change does not affect Pizzeria & Public House

NEW ALBANY — Beginning Tuesday, the New Albanian Brewing Company will indefinitely suspend food service at Bank Street Brewhouse, its downtown New Albany location, according to a post on NABC’s website.

NABC’s brewing operation and its original location at the Pizzeria & Public House at 3312 Plaza Drive in New Albany are entirely unaffected by the changes, the post stated.

In the days to follow, the brewhouse, 415 Bank St., remains open for business (the schedule is to be determined) for “beers only” during planning, painting and remodeling, and BSB will continue to regularly function as the brewery’s downtown New Albany taproom — altered yet ongoing, according the post. Beer only hours for the next three days (today through Thursday), will be 3 to 9 p.m.

The future taproom format will include NABC beers served on-site, and NABC beer for carry-out in growlers and 22-ounce bomber bottles. NABC is planning an expanded souvenir shop. There will be enhanced opportunities to use the facility as a venue and host for special events, according to the post.

The rest of the post reads as follows:

“There may even be nibbles at some point, and we hope to play an ancillary role in animating food truck culture in New Albany, but we don’t intend to be a restaurant as before.

That phase has passed, for now.

Long live the many fond memories.

We had a great five-year run at BSB, and did our bit to shepherd the process of revitalization in downtown New Albany. We actually accomplished many of our aesthetic and ideological goals, but now we need to indulge in some updating and reinvention of our own, because the targets have moved and the competitive climate always is changing — as it pertains both to the food and drink scene in downtown New Albany, and the market for better beer at home and in the world outside.

We must change along with the rest, and so we will. We intend to remain part of the downtown fabric, just differently than before. It’s a reinvention, not a departure.

Profuse and sincere thanks to everyone who supported the founding BSB concept, whether employee or customer. We are grateful.

Rock on.”
