Last week, Big Rock Chophouse in Birmingham got rid of its 15-barrel, copper tank brewing system from the restaurant in anticipation of Griffin Claw Brewing Company.
Griffin Claw, 575 S. Eton St. in Birmingham, will be the new home of Big Rock Chophouse’s award-winning beers starting next spring. It will also be a bar and restaurant with a basic menu focusing on beer-friendly foods such as burgers and sausages.
Blue Stallion Brewing of Lexington, Ky., purchased Big Rock’s old brewing system to make way for the Griffin Claw’s state-of-the-art, Michigan-made brewing equipment, which will be installed in upcoming months. Owner Norm LePage says they plan to start brewing beer in the new facility as soon as February.
