The taproom offers 24 different beer options on tap with each being brewed on site.

The building is separated into five distinct sections to create a unique feel throughout the brewery. It also features a large outdoor patio.

“The Big Friendly is much more than a brewery in terms of its importance to this neighborhood,” said Wheeler District President Blair Humphreys. “The brewing team’s commitment to their craft and the priority they place on loving the community around them make the ‘The Big Friendly’ something of a mantra – and a key ingredient that will enrich Wheeler District.”

The Big Friendly is open from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.
