The finishing touches are being applied to a new and unique bar and grill in New Baden. The Wooden Mouth will specialize in craft cocktails, select spirits, fine wine, draft beer, and an exclusive lunch menu. With well over 100 different whiskeys alone, owner Brant Kehrer told the Clinton County Voice this weekend that he anticipates being fully open next month.

The finishing touches are being applied to a new and unique bar and grill in New Baden. The Wooden Mouth will specialize in craft cocktails, select spirits, fine wine, draft beer, and an exclusive lunch menu. With well over 100 different whiskeys alone, owner Brant Kehrer told the Clinton County Voice this weekend that he anticipates being fully open next month.

For now, the team is busy learning their craft as mixologists. The Wooden Mouth team just completed an intensive training course with Brian Van Flandern from New York City, also known as “America’s best mixologist.” Van Flandern told the Clinton County Voice that he is excited to bring a unique and upscale element to Southern Illinois. “A mixologist is somewhat like comparing a chef to a cook” he said, “any chef can cook but not all cooks are chefs. The same applies to mixologists, they can all tend a bar but very few bartenders are mixologists. It’s an incredibly unique and specialized craft that makes for an elegant, yet affordable experience.”

Owner Brant Kehrer added that the Wooden Mouth will be something that New Baden can be immensely proud of because it will draw people from other communities. With the opening of the Wooden Mouth, Brant feels strongly that it will provide New Baden with a unique gathering place expected to not only earn the appreciation of people in the community who will support it but to also attract visitors from other areas who will help enhance the village as one that is vibrant, active, and economically prosperous.

“The environment here will be very professional with our goal being to build a perfect cocktail each and every time. Our food will all be made in house and our staff has been handpicked to provide impeccable service.”

The Wooden Mouth is located at 423 Hanover Street in New Baden in the former fine swine building. Visit the Wooden Mouth on Facebook for a sneak peek and to learn more.
