The owners of BadWolf Brewing Company and CJ Finz have teamed up to bring a new home grown restaurant & brewery to Historic Downtown Manassas – BadWolf Public House. The 3,000 square foot restaurant and brewery, located at 9406 Battle Street, will consist of a three-barrel brewhouse, taproom and a two-floor private room that seats up to 35.
The restaurant intends to open in March and will feature a farm to table style menu with local brews on tap. The brewery operation will open later featuring new and unique BadWolf beers. Little BadWolf, 9776 Center St. Manassas, will convert to a sour only brewery with limited hours once the new brew operation opens. “As local business owners and long-time residents of the Manassas area, we have deep roots and a love for our community and the impact we have on it,” said Chris Sellers, owner, CJ Finz and co-owner BadWolf Public House.
“Our unique concept offers a new attraction for residents and visitors and builds on the revitalization of downtown. We will source local ingredients whenever possible for the brewery and restaurant and plan to increase local ingredients as available in the future. Spent grains will be donated to local farmers and re-used in some recipes in the restaurant. We believe in building our local economy through social responsibility and supporting all local industries, not just our own,” said Sarah Meyer, owner, BadWolf Brewing Company and co-owner BadWolf Public House.
Mayor Harry J. Parrish II said “The City has established Historic Downtown Manassas as a modern dining and shopping destination for residents and visitors alike due to its unique character and the strength of its independent small business owners. BadWolf Brewing Company was the first craft brewer in Manassas and helped establish our City’s growing leadership role in craft brewing and craft spirits. We are pleased to welcome the partnership between BadWolf and the owners of CJ Finz, one of our great local restaurants, as they expand their businesses and establish BadWolf Public House together.”
