The crew behind Farmers’ Cabinet (1113 Walnut St.) will tackle a new project at the Frank Furness-designed former bank building at 600 Spring Garden St. that has spent recent memory as a series of sketchy clubs (Transit, 90 Degrees).

The main floor, with its three-story-high ceiling, will be transformed into what they say will be the city's largest beer hall, a beast featuring more than 85 taps.

The menu will consist of a blend of Southern-style barbecues, served family style. The downstairs will feature authentic Tiki drinks and offer a Pan-Asian menu. The third floor will be utilized as an in-house brewery/distillery.

The bottom two floors are projected to open in the spring of 2012 with the brewery/distillery opening sometime during the fall.

Stay tuned for the name.
