Sorry, beer lovers, but you'll have one less place to grab a pint in the upcoming months. Pedal Haus Brewery in downtown Tempe will close its doors this summer for an expansive remodel, which the brewery and restaurant will unveil in the fall.
The locally owned brew pub will undergo a transformation to increase brewing capacity, add a private dining room, enhance the patio and beer garden area, and expand its beer selection. Pedal Haus will be closed today, June 27, through September 26, with a grand reopening set for early October.
With the newly designed brewery, Pedal Haus brewmaster Derek “Doc” Osborne will be able to produce 2,300 gallons of beer on a weekly basis, including a Belgian-style witbier, pilsner, IPA, and English ESB.
Pedal Haus will be redesigned by Kimberly Harris of Studio K, the designer of restaurants such as RnR, The Vig, and Zinc Bistro. The new interior will be designed to provide a darker, pub-like environment to attract the late-night, social scene. Some new features will include retractable garage doors; yard games such as ping pong, cornhole, and ladder ball; and communal bungalows with fire pits that will be available for larger parties to rent. The dining area will also be downsized to feature more private areas, and the large fermentation tanks will become the centerpiece of the dining room so guests can view the brewing process.
Following the grand reopening, Pedal Haus will be open 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. on Thursdays, and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
