LOWRY PARK CENTRAL — One year after opening Ichicoro Ramen in Old Seminole Heights, owner Noel Cruz celebrates the opening of a new concept, c. 1949, a craft-beer driven bar boasting 40 taps, dedicated to breweries all over Florida.
"Craft beer is a booming industry," Noel Cruz, owner, said. "We have a big focus on the Florida craft brewing scene including the backyards of Tampa and St. Petersburg."
After deciding on a draft, bar-goers can play pool or just sit, and relax in an outdoor courtyard that can seat up to 90 guests.
Inside, on days when sports aren't as prominent, off the beaten track movies play on multiple televisions.
"If you're the kind of person that wants to get thoughtful and into the beer vibe you can do that, or if you just want an easy-drinking pilsner we have that as well," Cruz said. "We want to be welcoming to everyone from the neighborhood, and to everyone who is into beer.
Though they don't have their own food-menu, there is a rotating selection of food trucks that primarily pull up on Fridays and Saturdays and offer dining options from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Still operating in soft opening stages, c. 1949 plans to have a week long program of food trucks as well as a weekend brunch in the near future.
A grand opening will take place at 6905 N Orleans Ave. once the holiday craze settles.
