Birmingham’s Griffin Claw Brewing half built, but beer tastings have begun

Construction is more than halfway complete for a new brewpub that is expected to open in March in Birmingham’s Rail District.

Even before all the walls are up, however , Griffin Claw Brewing Co. is holding tastings to highlight the bread and butter of its business – its Rochester Chop House brews from brewmaster Dan Rogers. The latest tasting of Roger’s award-winning IPA came with a construction update.

The 12,000-square-foot facility is being build on Eton Street. Brewing and distribution will take place on site, and there will be a tasting roo and outdoor garden to complement the restaurant.

On Nov. 1, Rochester Chop House sold and shipped its massive 15-barrel copper tank system to a brewing in Lexington, Kentucky. In December, Griffin Claw will receive mew brewery equipment from Kraft Werks in Lake Orion.
