This Thurs., Oct. 6, OddStory Brewing Co.'s new location will open for business at 1604 Central Ave.

What to expect from the highly anticipated new spot? Luckily, we got a sneak peek of the space — meaning that today, you’re getting a sneak peek of the space. 👇

Luckily, the highest stakes here just include making the right beverage choice.

The main space

Enter OddStory’s new location and be met with The Chicks’ favorite song material — wide open spaces. Jokes aside, we were struck by how open the main space felt, with plenty of seating + a (mostly) clear wall giving you a peek right into the brewing process.

Take your pick of a four-person table, bar-like seating that faces the outdoor space, or a communal table where you can make friends. Don’t forget to check out the “swag shop” with merch + to-go beer.

Yeah, it’s pretty cozy.

The lounge

Tucked behind the main bar area is a cozy lounge with plenty o’ plants and comfy seating. Relax on one of the velvet seats and admire the exposed brick.

Bonus: This spot will put you closest to the restrooms.

The patio

One of the most exciting parts of the Central Avenue location is the large outdoor area where you can find OddStory’s new, full kitchen, Anomaly. We’re particularly delighted by the menu — we don’t wanna give away everything, but Editor Brianna is eyeing the vegan curry fries, and Editor Kristen can’t wait to try the Szechuan bao.

Besides the kitchen, the patio also has:

  • A dog waste station, making the new location kid and dog-friendly
  • Three sets of custom cornhole boards
  • A variety of seating, from Adirondack chairs in the sun to covered tables
  • Bistro lights, which make everything better

Check it all out for yourself this Thursday from 4-10 p.m.
