UPDATE: Gerard announced today that they will have 85 brews on tap, actually. 85. That pushes Coalhouse Pizza over the edge for the most beers on tap in not only Fairfield County, but also the entire state of Connecticut! Get those growlers ready!
Did you just wet yourself a little?
Yeah, we did too when Gerard Robertson told us the news a few months back. After some back and forth, Gerard (the owner, pizzaiola, and all around good guy) had his plans for another expansion approved and is all ready to go. You might remember the original Coalhouse as being only the main room where the bar and pizza oven is now. Then the room next door was available, so Gerard hopped on it, tore down those walls, installed more seating, and a game room. And so begins the next chapter in Coalhouse Pizza history: the brand new beer and bourbon bar!
Yup, yup, get ready for 33 brews on tap that will be available right at the bar along with a nice selection of bourbons and whiskeys. With the addition of those new taps, Gerard is raising the stakes of his beer game up to a crazy impressive rotating 85 draught beers available in the main dining area. That pushes Coalhouse into the #1 spot for number of beers on tap right here in Fairfield County!
We talked with Gerard a few weeks back and he told us that the new room is going to be great and will help him to bring in even more unique, rare, and fun brews. It will feature a 15 seat mahogany and copper bar and . . . wait for it . . . 150 different bourbons and whiskeys. That also tops the list for Fairfield County (as far as we can tell), bringing Coalhouse in at the #1 spot again.
The scheduled opening date is somewhere in the middle of June which will be perfect for summertime fun. Ah, forget that . . . the perfect time to celebrate is Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and the weekend . . .
We’ll keep you up to date with plans and for other possibilities like an expanded game room and even more seating. In the meantime, you’ll just have to enjoy the 52 brews on tap and the already admirable selection of 80 bourbons. Oh darn!
