Craft House had planned to begin its soft opening today, Monday, July 18, of its second location, at 1030 Goss Ave., a little over 6 months from announcing the intention to renovate an undistinguished building in Germantown. But an unexpected delay in delivery of the tabletops has delayed that opening until Thursday, July 21. The site had been a veterans rehab center, and most recently the office of Underhill Associates developers.
The new business will continue the growing density of food and drink establishments in Germantown. Craft House is situated across Goss Ave. from Four Pegs bar and the Post pizza place. The new sharp, glass-fronted building with an interior green space will look out onto Schnitzelbzurg’s main thoroughfare.
Co-owner Pat Hagan, who also owns the Bluegrass Brewing Company, opened the first Craft House, serving only craft beers made in the Kentuckiana area, at 2636 Frankfort Ave. in 2014. The Germantown Craft House has an A-frame glass facade with a 1,000-square-foot outdoor deck facing Goss. Hagan and his co-owner Brad Culver plan to open with 50 beers on tap and a menu much like that of heir Crescent Hill place, but with some German dishes as well.
