Eater Boston is reporting that The Balloon Factory by FAB Beer is looking to open on Broadway just east of Teele Square, with a fundraising page saying that the facility would focus on beer, wine, and liquor sales on-site along with regional distribution of its contract-brewed beer. The fundraising page also says that the space would include a bar and a large outdoor area, with both large and small events being part of the plans including weddings, parties, wine and cheese flight nights, cocktail-making classes, and more. The business is looking for a total of $100,000 in funds over the next two months or so and is about a quarter of the way to that goal.
The FAB team has also collaborated with the people behind the now-closed Bergamot restaurant on Washington Street to open the brand new FAB gastropub in that space, which is a combination restaurant/art gallery.
The address for the upcoming Balloon Factory by FAB Beer is 1060 Broadway, Somerville, MA, 02144. The website for FAB (which stands for Food Art Beer) is http://food.art.beer/
