Green shag has given way to wood and steel at 132 Genesee St., where The Good Shepherds Brewing Co. will hold a grand opening Friday, April 6.
Owner and brewer Garrett Shepherd held the soft opening Saturday, March 17. It was a few days shy of one year since he bought what’s known as the Goss Building and relocated his brewery to its first floor, where clothing store PBJ on the Corner operated until 2012. Being St. Patrick’s Day, the soft opening perfectly demonstrated why Shepherd moved, he said Friday. Many of his customers that day stopped in because they were bar-hopping at his new neighbors, like Parker’s or A.T. Walley. They wouldn’t have even seen the old Good Shepherds on Loop Road, which opened in 2014.
