The Bullpen, which will be located in a 2,000-square-foot space on the ground floor of the American Tobacco Campus' Diamond View III building, will also feature live music with regular programming provided by the Music Maker Relief Foundation. $1 from every pint sold at The Bullpen will be donated to support the foundation's work.
"Real blues, real beer, real people: this will surely become one of the nation’s greatest blues clubs. Music Maker has spent over 20 years building relationships with America's deepest artists. We are thrilled to now have a "home stage" for these artists to perform," said Tim Duffy, co-founder, Music Maker Relief Foundation.
The Bullpen will operate year round and feature an outdoor patio. Lunch and dinner will feature selections from Heavenly Buffaloes. There will be eight rotating taps featuring Bull Durham Beer and other North Carolina beers.
Previously, Bull Durham Beer was only available at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park during Bulls games.
“Beer, baseball, buffalo wings and the blues are part of Durham’s DNA. This new restaurant will bring together some of the most popular homegrown institutions for one dynamite restaurant where folks can have a great time for a good cause," said Michael Goodmon, vice president of real estate at Capitol Broadcasting Company, which owns the Durham Bulls and Bull Durham Beer Company.
The Bullpen is planning to open in late October. Servers are currently being hired.
Once open The Bullpen will operate seven days a week, with lunch served from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. and dinner served 4 p.m. until midnight.
Bull Durham Beer Co, the only beer company located at a Minor League Baseball stadium, launched in April 2015.
