This has been a very fun and exciting project for Genuine Hospitality Consulting. Saint Arnold Brewing Company’s state-of-the-art brewery has become a popular destination for visitors, both to get a close-up look of the facility during regularly offered tours, and as a unique location for private events. As of March, 2013, Saint Arnold founder Brock Wagner has opened a restaurant at the facility and also offers in-house special event catering to help make his guests’ visits even more memorable. The restaurant is open for lunch, Monday through Friday, and offers beer-friendly favorites from Alsace and Belgium, as well as a nice variety of American Regional fare. Ryan Savoie, formerly at The Grove, is the Executive Chef.
Joe Abuso with Genuine Hospitality Consulting was hired to work on the initial concept and feasibility study. He went on to create the preliminary menus, design the kitchen, specify the equipment, hire and train the staff and help develop the systems and procedures for the operation, including the in-house catering business.
