Artisan Tacos Featuring Local Ingredients, Small Batch Brews on Tap for New Space at Growing Mills Campus
ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. (March 1, 2017) – After more than a decade of cultivating their craft and building an enthusiastic fan base across North Carolina, restaurateurs Inez and Stephen Ribustello will open a second location of their acclaimed Tarboro Brewing Company at the quickly growing Rocky Mount Mills campus.
Dubbed TBC West, the new brewery and taco concept will build on the elements that have led to organic success for their team.
“We have always believed success derives from being very intentional in our growth, sourcing our ingredients locally, supporting our community and developing partnerships with the best organizations possible,” says Inez Ribustello. “The opportunity to open TBC West allows us to work with the fantastic team at Rocky Mount Mills and reach a huge base of customers who travel from Rocky Mount to Tarboro.”
The restaurant, located in the historic home at 1121 Falls Road, will feature a changing menu of artisan tacos that will reflect seasonal, local ingredients and complement the rotating taps of beer produced at the main facility in Tarboro as well as the small batch beers they’ll produce at the Mills location.
Adds Stephen Ribustello: “Coming to the Mills campus will allow us to experiment with new styles of beer and exchange ideas with the other brewers, students at the Nash Community College 360 Brewing and Distillation Program and a new audience coming to the Mills.”
Tarboro Brewing Company’s main taproom and brewing facility will remain in Tarboro alongside their beloved On the Square restaurant. At that location, they produce Seed Spitter Salted Watermelon Goze, St. James Brun and Southern Solstice Imperial Stout as well as can their signature beers: Nana’s Roof Pale Ale, First Ryed IPA, Town Common Ale and Downtown Abbaye Belgian-style Dubbel. Their beers can also be found on tap at some of the most acclaimed chef-driven restaurants across North Carolina including Fearrington House in Pittsboro, Piedmont in Durham, Chef and the Farmer in Kinston and Royale in Raleigh..
“We’re developing Rocky Mount Mills as both a place to celebrate our local community and as a home for exciting ideas and initiatives by successful entrepreneurs and dreamers from places near and far,” says Evan Covington Chavez, development manager, Rocky Mount Mills. “Tarboro Brewing Company, Inez and Stephen fit that model perfectly and will also be a great inspiration for future tenants at the Mills campus.”
