Construction Begins on Paulaner’s Bowery Brewery
The decades-old Attias Oven Corp./Cannon Co. restaurant supply businesses relocated to Brooklyn in mid-June, two months after we first broke news that Paulaner was planning a flagship Bowery brewery. Building owner (and industry veteran) Simon Attias is leasing both stores to the German-based beer company for its first stateside brauhaus.
Change is now happening on the regular over at 265-267 Bowery, where groundbreak activities are now officially underway. For the last week or so, the gates were up, advertising an interior presently amidst absolute gutting. By yesterday evening, white-painted plywood arrived at the project site. A fresh canvas just waiting to be tagged.
With regard to local politics, a license is all but in the bag for Paulaner Brauhaus. Despite some last-minute community outreach and neighborhood concerns about possible noise issues, ownership secured the green light from Community Board 3 for wine and beer privileges. Rudy Tauscher, former General Manger of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, is heading up this most ambitious venture. No doubt another game-changer on the Bowery midsection.
