Hen of the Wood owners plan to open a beer bar on the Mountain Road in Stowe, co-owner Eric Warnstedt said.
The bar will have 26 taps and should be open by the end of June, he said. There will be a small cocktail menu and wine, as well as "noshy" foods, Warnstedt said.
The bar, still unnamed, will be in the space vacated by the Vermont Ale House near the foot of the Mountain Road. The bar will have a patio out front and a beer garden in the back. The business owners still need to sign a lease, Warnstedt said.
The beer bar will bring something distinct to Stowe while its owners are mindful "not to step on anyone else's toes," Warnstedt said. Two Stowe restaurants in particular, the Bench and Piecasso, are run by his friends, he said.
"At the end of the day it's a beer bar," Warnstedt said.
Hen of the Wood, one of Vermont's best known restaurants, opened in Waterbury about a decade ago. A second Hen restaurant opened on Cherry Street in Burlington in the fall of 2013.
