Patina is set to open in June, says co-owner Greg Moore.
Former PoCo mayor Greg Moore and his wife, Erin, have teamed up with Brian Orrange, owner of Orrange Kitchen + Bar, and his wife, Kim, plus another investment partner to launch Patina Brewery Brewhouse and Barbecue in the building that once housed Inno Bakery and, previously, a provincial liquor store.
Moore said the name Patina came during a branding exercise last year: The owners wanted a title that reflected their values of producing high-quality, organic food and beverage. Food will be sourced locally, Moore said, and a herb garden and beehive will be installed on the roof of the one-storey building they’re leasing.
As for the craft beer, Moore said Patina will make five house brews: lager, IPA, ale, a darker beer and seasonals. A 10-seat tasting room will be located next to the 60-seat eatery.
