Hybrid coffee, bar lounge opening
It’s all in the name. Bru 64 is gearing up to open next week and locals are wondering what the new business is all about.
“Bru 64’s name was the basic idea of combining a place for brewing coffee and serving beer. The 64 stands for its location: 64 Main St.,” owner, Judd Seales said Wednesday.
On the menu are organic specialty hot and iced coffees and teas, espresso, cappuccinos, hot cocoa, blenders (what Bru 64 is calling their specialty smoothies with multiple flavors and a protein option) along with beer and wine, manager Kelly Gregory said Wednesday.
The coffee lounge has some unusual features with its cold brew coffee and iced teas on tap and a La Marzocco coffee machine, which is primarily featured on the West Coast.
Bru 64 is looking to keep local businesses like the Tap Room and Cortland Beer Co., happy by straying away from local and state beverages on its menu.
“The whole idea is to have an Armory Square (Syracuse) type-feel to Main Street,” Seales said Wednesday. “We aren’t looking to hurt our neighbors, we are hoping to promote them by working with them to create a metro downtown.”
