The Opera House’s maple floors, yellow masonry and rustic tin ceiling have been rescued and restored creating a friendly and unique atmosphere. Making the most out of the space, Brew will be continually creating new menus pairing local beer, crafted ales and freshly brewed coffee, with seasonal salads and sandwiches. An old school 18-inch zinc bar with galvanized pipework rounds across the space creating makeshift objects and adding to the industrial aesthetic.

Wood from an old barn covers a rough and ready wall creating private spaces within the open plan floor. Vintage furniture contrasting with the old bricked wall gives the place a classy historic look that is both sustainable and cozy. The sturdy tables along the windows are made from recycled wood from a nearby bowling alley and are perfect for enjoying a drink while people-watching.
