Drunken Hog BBQ Moving Into Wooden Cask Brewery
A new food operation will be in service at Wooden Cask Brewery in Newport.
Drunken Hog BBQ, a pop-up mobile vending and catering service from Cincinnati, will take over the space previously occupied by the Farmstand Cafe.
Wooden Cask is located at 629 York Street.
Drunken Hog was started in 2010, serving primarily friends and family, Trevor Gorman and his co-pitmaster and cousin David Beckmeyer, said they are ready to take the next step beyond pop-ups.
“We have been working towards this since our first event; slowly growing organically over the last couple of years doing pop-ups and catering,” Gorman said. “So, when the opportunity came to partner with Wooden Cask Brewing and open our first permanent location, we couldn’t pass it up! It felt like the perfect move to grow the business. We have a real passion for BBQ and we are so excited to share that passion with everyone.”
Serving traditional BBQ staples, as well as weekly and daily specials, Drunken Hog BBQ plans to offer pulled pork, pulled chicken, smoked sausage, and multiple side items to choose from with an extensive menu on the weekend featuring brisket, beef ribs and chicken wings.
“We look forward to our new partnership with Trevor, David, and Drunken Hog BBQ,” said Karen Schiltz, co-owner and CFO of Wooden Cask. “We see how passionate they are about BBQ and we think our customers are really going to enjoy them and their new menu.”
The new location is set to open on October 18.
