Forager Tasting Room & Eatery
Cuisines: Beer & Brewery, Coffee Shop & Cafe, Small Plates
South First Street (SoFA) welcomes an innovative blend of coffee, beer, food, and arts at the Forager Tasting Room & Eatery.
Forager is a launching pad for entrepreneurs in the food, beverage, and arts industry. During the build-out since fall 2016, Forager has been activating its space for musicians and artists. Forager has since partnered with the founders of Devout Coffee and is now serving local beer, coffee and small plates, with a growing menu. The space is also used as a venue for both private and public events. The next phase will see the opening of incubator kitchen and brewing facilities to help chefs and brewers bring their creations to the public in a “permanent pop-up” environment.
Each kitchen in the space will be operated by independent chefs chosen through a rigorous selection process. Seven individual micro-restaurants include two flagship anchors with others rotating out every 12-18 mos. In exchange for partial equity, Forager provides kitchen space at a discounted monthly rate while also serving as an advisory board and helping raise the capital needed for a chef to open his or her own self-sustainable brick and mortar restaurant. The beer program includes a small 2-barrel brewing setup and is designed for seasoned homebrewers planning to begin a professional career.
Paid lot and metered street parking (free all day Sunday).
