  • Eastern Market Brewing Co/Facebook
The Eastern Market Brewing Company is preparing to open during Eastern Market After Dark on Sept. 28, Eater reports.

The space, at 2515 Riopelle, will face the street and include garage doors that swing up to provide an open air feel. Expect "traditional true-to-style beers on tap as well as bastardized versions that utilize market ingredients." Between nine and 12 varieties will be offered in the two-story facility.

The company also bought the former Fat Panda food truck and will turn it into a new truck called the Elephant Shack with the help of chef Jonathan Kung. Expect "accessible bar fare" with international influences.
