Tapping into the future foot traffic attracted by adjacent Unity Park, Pangaea Brewing opened its doors on June 25, with brews, pizzas and kombuchas inspired by founder Steve Schofield and his wife Emily’s international travels.
The brewery, reminiscent of an urban jungle within 115 Welbourn St.’s 5,000-square-foot industrial-retail space, draws from the idea that like its Paleozoic namesake, its brews are bringing the world back together again, according to Schofield. Dogs are welcome, as are families hoping to sample the brewery’s craft sodas and games.
Beers on tap range from the citrusy 7.1% IPA Norse Code to the smoky Irish stout Murphy’s Law to the light lemongrass wheat beers White Thaiger and Orange Thaiger.
Salads and specialty pizzas are the gastro pub’s calling card. Alongside traditional cheese and pepperoni, a pizza called The South Carolina features pork butt and bacon jam on a beer-mustard base, while the Vietnamese samples ingredients much farther from home with a hoisin base, pickled carrots, crushed peanuts, beef jerky, cilantro and pecorino romano. The Italian, Spanish and Mediterranean add to the international lineup.
