About Plan 9 Eatery & Brewery

Local, independent, & hand-crafted. Nothing made by evil robots. We believe that food and drinks should be exciting, fresh, and independent.

Bring everyone. We ain’t a bar. Never have been. Never will be. Beer. Food. Family. Friends. Community. Music. Art. Laughter. Farts. Etc.

You might not see a sturdy portfolio of core year-round beers produced. Not that it’s a bad thing… Our beers simply tend to be more experimental and less brewed to a particular style.

For the Love of Wine & Cheese at SIP Wine & Beer

Wine + Cheese= LOVE as we bring back our fan favorite SIP Wine Class Series For The Love of Wine & Cheese. We have a wine and cheese pairing you won’t want to miss. Call to reserve your spot by November 15th.
