Another local brewery is about a week away from opening its doors, and this one is in downtown Wichita.
Third Place Brewing is set to have its grand opening at 4 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 19. The brewery is at 630 E. Douglas, which is several doors east of Old Mill Tasty Shop, just before the railroad track overpass.
The brewery is owned by Wichita ear surgeon Tom Kryzer and Jason Algya, a pilot. The two have been brewing beer together for five years and are in the process of getting enough inventory stockpiled to serve their customers.
The brewery’s tap room is similar to what beer fans might be used to from Central Standard Brewing and Hopping Gnome Brewing Company. It has a bar fitted with bright red stools plus several tables with mismatched chairs. A church pew provides seating along one wall, and a Wichita flag adorns the wall. The ceiling is lined with strings of large-bulb lights.
The brewery will not serve food. It will be open Thursday through Saturday nights.
Stay tuned for more details as opening day draws closer.
