Tower Hill Brewing
Four friends who share an enjoyment of visiting breweries and trying new beers have joined together to create Tower Hill Brewing. They will brew with a seven-barrel system.
Bob Meyer, who is in the food service business, spoke for the group and said each one of the owners brings special skills to the project. They include Bob Golden, owner of a CPA firm who is their CFO; Brian Hubert, co-owner of an IT company; and Ivan Nazario, a project manager for a Naval contractor.
Nazario will be their head brewer. “He’s been home brewing for over 20 years,” said Meyer. “It’s his initial dream we all grabbed and brought to fruition.”
“We look to him for the techniques,” Meyer added.
All are keeping their day jobs, including Nazario, “until things go our way,” he added. They will hire a brewery consultant to work with assistant brewers and a taproom staff.
The name reflects the local opinion that residents don’t need anything north of the tower between U.S. Route 1 (Tower Hill Road) and Route 138 (Bridgetown Road) in South Kingstown.
The location at South County Commons is perfect, Meyer said. They are going into an existing building that has never been used. A spa had been at the location but was hit by a car and burned to the ground. Meyer said they’ve signed a lease and will build out the inside. Architectural plans call for a tap room with a good size bar.
The building itself is 5,000 square feet with 2,200 square feet for brewing and the rest for the tap room and bar. There is a garage door out to an outdoor beer garden.
As for the beers, the partners are all on the same page with style preferences. They expect to launch with hazy IPAs, maybe three of them – medium, high and low test versions of the style.
“We want to hit a style that everyone will like,” Meyer said.
“Ivan does a really great stout,” he said. So expect one of those. Guests will also find a Pale Ale and seasonal beers such as winter ales, summer blondes and Oktoberfests.
Being in South County Commons, there’s plenty of food there so there will be no kitchen or food trucks. “We can cross-pollinate to send customers to one of the restaurants or figure out how customers can order a pizza from Pasquale’s,” Meyer said.
They think their location next door to the movie theater is perfect either for a beer before or after a movie.
