Back in March we let you know that MoCo residents Sam Mussomeli and Terry Redmond are bringing BabyCat Brewery to 10241 Kensington Pkwy in Kensington.”Born from a love of nature, pets, family, and beer, BabyCat brewery will forever be dedicated to crafting excellent craft beverages and ensuring you, your family and your friends feel right at home every time you visit us.” Construction is ongoing and approximately 50% complete, Redmond told us. Assembly of the brewhouse is scheduled to begin in the next few weeks and the tap room will be appointed with a rustic industrial old time train station feel, since the brewery will be located just below the CSX and Marc tracks.
The plan is for the brewery to be family focused, as Mussomeli and Redmond would like to maximize the outdoor space. “We plan to have a good size lawn area where we’ll have adirondacks with some fire pits along with picnic tables, room for lawn games and spreading out blankets for families and their dogs.” says Redmond. “We’ll also have a bluestone patio area that will have a cafe type beer garden feel, along with some other surprises we’re not ready yet to reveal.” The brewery will offer a space for local artists to show their work and would also like to bring in local musicians to perform. Though the brewery won’t offer food of its own, they’ll be working with food trucks and offering QR codes to use at some of the surrounding restaurants.
BabyCat Brewery hopes to open in November and will be providing updates via Instagram as they move closer towards opening. A photo of the construction is available below and our featured photo shows a mural on an outside wall, painted by local artist Nicole Bourgea
