Brewer’s Tap & Table Sets Down in Waltham
Now that the presidential election has been decided, there are a lot to emotions to unpack, so it only feels right to welcome a new beer bar days after the polls close. Brewer’s Tap & Table is now serving craft beer and eclectic fare in Waltham, Eater Boston reported.
Cofounders Nancy and Matt Sargent found their culinary start with a pop-up dinner series in Vermont called Phantom Dinner, Eater reported. With the help of Boston Beer Works founder Joe Slesar, the duo morphed that concept into a brick-and-mortar on Moody Street. The location was previously Watch City Brewing.
The restaurant’s food menu is similar to the globally-inspired fare the Sargents made in Vermont. Expect rotating plates like house-made sausages and banh mi sandwiches, with more dishes added into the mix as the team settles in, Matt Sargent told Eater. He also plans to source his meat and dairy from within 250 miles of Waltham, and his seafood from New England shores, according to the restaurant’s website.
Another focus is the beer. The restaurant is working its way up to 48 active draft lines—it currently has 36—and will feature beers from New England breweries like Banded Horn Brewing Company, Hermit Thrush, and Night Shift. A small selection of wines, hard-to-find bourbons, and cocktails will also be available, Eater reported.
The space can seat around 150, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page, and it has patio space. Since the Sargents could only seat 60 at their Vermont concept, they want to keep the restaurant’s growth gradual to get things just right.
“Folks, you’ve been patient, and gracious, and really enthusiastic,” they wrote on Facebook. “We are so excited to bring you in here and show you what we’ve been up to. Since the day we arrived in Waltham, the vibe has been pure, warm, and fuzzy.”
There’s a lot of other exciting news coming out of the local bar scene, too. Landmark Public House recently opened in Dorchester, Eater Boston reported, and Belfry Hall’s upscale pub fare will make its way to Quincy in January. Another newcomer, City Tap House, is settling down in Fort Point, and is currently hiring for all positions.
