Expect a bigger, beery-er Hawthorne’s experience in the near future

After a fire tore through Hawthorne’s back in February, it’s clear that they have one thing on their mind: Go big, or go home.

Foobooz reports that the beer boutique and eatery located at 11th and Fitzwater St. will open up with a bigger beer/booze selection and something the they’re calling the “ace up their sleeve” when it comes to the next big thing on the Philly beer scene. Color us officially intrigued.

While there is no mention of an official opening date, Hawthorne’s will  feature a new growler station and larger fireplace. They’ll also offer a new in-house bakery filled with “muffins, rustic loaves of bread and more” on the daily to add to their already stellar brunch options. An 8-seat breakfast bar is also in the works. A tweet posted by the official Hawthorne’s account from August gives you a glimpse into a possible timeline:

A fire tore through the building back in late February. The fire department determined that it started in an apartment above the restaurant. No injuries reported but the building sustained heavy water damage and forced Hawthorne’s to temporarily close. Renovation efforts have been ongoing for eight months and the crew held a fundraiser in March to help remind patrons and neighbors that they were intent on making a comeback.

      maybe beer and liquor in one place….think about the novelty. PA could be at the forefront of beer and liquor retail.

    Could this *possibly* have anything to do with Nodding Head’s announcement that they will be closing and relocating in Philladelphia? Not really “the next big thing” in beer, but it could be a good pairing.

      Don’t toy with us, Ray! I don’t want to get my hopes up!
