If you hang out at Beer Revolution, chances are you’ve been seeing activity in the space next door to it on 3rd Street for a while, including Beer Rev co-owner and Olde Depot boss Rebecca Boyles and running back and forth between the two. The wait is over and The Olde Depot officially opened to the public on March 9.
Named for the train station that used to be in that spot, The Olde Depot has 35 constantly rotating taps. I’ve been there twice now and on both occasions was able to order a beer I’d never had before, which is always a plus. The vegan menu that currently emphasizes sausage and sides — I hear the opening-weekend perogies were fantastic. It has dog-friendly outdoor seating and because it is a restaurant as well as a beer bar, children are allowed (there’s keg root beer for them). Its first big event will be an imperial stout festival on March 23.
