It has been three years since Brant Kehrer began working on bringing his unique craft beers business to New Baden. Finally on Thursday April 29 his dream will come true. The Wooden Mouth is opening to the public at 11 am that day.
Wooden Mouth is located in the former site of the restaurant called A Fine Swine at 423 West Hanover. Kehrer is inviting all of the village officials, health care workers, first responders and military personnel to an exclusive soft opening on Wednesday April 28, the day before he opens to the public.
After grand opening day, on Friday April 30 normal operating hours will begin. Wooden Mouth will be opened Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 11 am each day. It closes at 2 am Fridays and Saturdays and at 1 am on Sundays. It will be closed Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Thursday hours are 11 a.m. until 2 a.m.
