Diners looking for a place for beer and beer-filled food will find just that at The Phoenix Ale Brewery Central Kitchen, set to open in uptown Phoenix next week. Located at 5813 North Seventh Street, near Seventh Street and Bethany Home Road, the restaurant comes from The Phoenix Ale Brewery and Rich Stark, former CEO of NYPD Pizza.
The Central Kitchen will open its doors on Wednesday, May 11, and will serve dishes intended to pair with Phoenix Ale Brewery beers. The restaurant's signature item will be the Black Iron Pizza, which is baked in a custom, square, black iron pan to create a thin crust pizza.
Other featured dishes will include the Ale House Chicken Fried Chicken, Cast Iron Macaroni and Cheese, and BBQ Bison Burger. The burger's sauce is made with King George Amber beer, which was named in honor of the late Phoenix Ale Brewery owner, George Hancock.
At 3,500 square feet, the restaurant will offer a bright, contemporary feel. Diners will be able to enjoy community tables for large parties, booths, and a large, pet-friendly patio.
The Phoenix Ale Brewery Central Kitchen will be open from 11 a.m.to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. and 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The restaurant is located across from Okra at The Crown on 7th, a mixed-use development.
