Grand Central Brewhouse & Restaurant Brings European Beer Tank Technology to St Pete

While the original plans for Grand Central Brewhouse & Restaurant were reported back in April 2019 for the former Taco Bus site, permitting has finally got it moving and they are breaking ground today. We have a complete update on the forthcoming plans and the new projected opening for this summer.

Grand Central Brewhouse will consist of a craft beer taproom, serving approximately 16 beers, and a second-story, outdoor roof terrace. These indoor and outdoor spaces will be able to accommodate approximately 250 people, total. The microbrewery will also be home to an expansive, open-air beer garden, hosting an additional 375 guests. A second building, on the other side of the beer garden, will hold a third-party restaurant, which has not yet been determined.

“We intend to make Grand Central Brewhouse a go-to brewery in St. Pete,” said Kevin Milkey, owner of Grand Central Brewhouse. “People are the heart of this city and therefore, the heart of our mission. Grand Central Brewhouse will be a spot for the community to come together, make memories, and taste quality, craft beer.”

A place for foodies, beer enthusiasts and casual consumers alike, Grand Central Brewhouse’s drink menu will feature a wide variety of lagers and a full range of ales, including pale ales, IPAs and darker ales such as porters and stouts, plus some funky and sours beers. Head brewer Tyler Singletary will also create seasonal beers and limited-release options to complement the core beers. The microbrewery will serve craft beer directly from the tank, implementing a European beer tank technology. These advanced-serving tanks hold high-strength bag liners with a self-cooling, bag-in-tank system that will be used directly in the taproom. With less beer handling involved, this technology results in fresher beer than keg storage and a longer shelf life.

“Opening a brewery here in St. Pete has been a dream of mine for years,” said Milkey. “I’m excited to see this vision come to life, even beyond its beverage offerings. A portion of Grand Central Brewhouse’s proceeds will be donated to local charities, which is a contribution I am proud to give to a community that has given so much to me.”
