The Brewhouse District brings energy to downtown Fall River



The Brewhouse District opened for business earlier this week at 139 S. Main Street in downtown Fall River. Poised right across the street from the Fall River Justice Center, the eatery has been revamped from the former Taphouse Chew and Brew that closed during covid with a new look, new menu and new faces.

Co-owner Angela Celli said a ribbon cutting ceremony will take place December 11th at 10 AM but the team is ready to go now. The breakfast menu, served between 7 and 11 AM varies from plates with eggs, pancakes and waffles to skillets like the Brewhouse Skillet, made with home fries, scrambled eggs, spinach, mushrooms, feta and pickled onion. They offer lighter choices such as fruit cups and bagels as well as pastries like croissants and a delicious spinach egg bite that was the perfect mix of soft and crispy.

Coffee lovers will appreciate the drink menu that has peanut butter lattes, s’mores cold brew, and a nitro cold brew right on tap.

The lunch menu, served between 11 AM and 3 PM, offers sandwiches and wraps, melts, burgers and salads. Visitors to the Pickled Deli in Somerset will be excited to see some of their famous sides at The Brewhouse District as Celli is also a co-owner of the Somerset shop.

Local bartender Nick Ozug is co-owner of The Brewhouse District and will be a critical part of the new business. The Brewhouse District is also a fully licensed bar that will offer beer on tap as well as speciality drink options. Owners Celli and Ozug hope to expand the existing 7 AM to 3 PM hours of operation to 7 AM to 7 PM on Thursday and Friday within the next few weeks. With their extended hours, a light fare menu will be offered from 3 PM to closing with some fun snack options like stuffed baked potatoes, charcuterie boards and caprese eggplant. They also offer a variety of wings, quesadillas and a variety of desserts.

Celli and Ozug met while working together years ago and talked about how they both wanted the same thing: a coffee house and bar together with unique menu options. Celli said they looked at different locations but Ozug encouraged them to revisit the downtown location and they agreed it was the perfect fit.

Located in the Cherry and Webb building, The Brewhouse District also offers a unique event venue as it is connected to the lobby of the building that can be used for private events. The Brewhouse District is hosting their first event on Saturday, December 16th from 5:30 to 11 PM. Their “Winter Wonderland Christmas Party” is open to the public for a night of great food, drink and entertainment. The $75 ticket price includes hors d’oeuvres, dinner featuring a pasta bar and dessert table, a signature holiday cocktail along with photo opportunities and live entertainment.
