Ballistic Beer Co. Brewery, Springfield

David Kitchen, founder of the Ballistic Brewing Company has opened a new branch of the brewery in the space formerly occupied by the Springfield Central Tavern.

It will offer a full kitchen service with a menu including beer-brined chicken wings, Ballistic beer-infused sausage balls steamed dumplings, petite tender steaks, Ballistic beer-battered cod, pizzas and burgers, as well as a new beer concoction- the Springfield Pilsner. All beer on tap will be brewed on site in the 800 litre brewing equipment.
