There’s more than just beer a-brewin’ over at Pueblo Vida Brewing Company. The eco-friendly brewing joint at 115 E. Broadway has been looking to expand its cozy brewery and taproom space for some time. Now they’re close to completion and soon will be ready to welcome their thirsty patrons into the new and improved space.

The Pueblo Vida building was originally built back in 1918, which meant the space had endured multiple rounds of plaster and paint, but owners Linette Antillon and Kyle Jefferson got to work and renovated the small space, bringing back the location’s original uniqueness.

With the taproom and brewery complete, the owners continued to look for improvement.

“Our current space is small both in the brewing area and in the taproom,” said Linette Antillon. “We needed a little more room to make more beer and allow more people to sit and enjoy that beer!”

The expansion will open up both the taproom and brewery, moving into the space next door and, just as they did with the original space, Antillon and Jefferson will restore the brick wall and wood floors, keeping with Pueblo Vida’s current style.

“We’ve also reused and recycled all of the materials that we can to create tables and fixtures in the taproom,” said Antillon. “We will be able to brew a bit more, so the selection of beers will grow. Also, with the added space, we will be able to host live music regularly.”

Pueblo Vida will be open for a sneak preview of the new space this weekend, February 5-6, tying it in with their MLS Preseason Pub Night event on Saturday, February 5. They’ll be closed after that, but will reopen on February 11 with a beer release party with live music to kick off Arizona Beer Week and introduce Encore, a tasty double IPA brewed in collaboration with 1055 Brewing and Dragoon Brewing.
