Leading Ladies 2019: Pamela Machon

Owner of Sophie's Brewhouse

Posted

There’s always plenty of new and exciting things happening at SOPHIE’S BREWHOUSE. “This is an exciting year for us,” says owner Pamela Machon. “We are introducing new features, and breaking ground to expand our kitchen and add a bar. I can’t wait to see it all come together.”

Part coffeehouse, part cafe, Sophie’s Brewhouse is all about serving freshly made drinks and food made with local ingredients. “As a small business owner, I make it a priority to use as many local vendors and businesses as possible.”

Currently open for breakfast and lunch, the eatery is planning on staying open in the evenings later this summer, and debuting an expanded menu of shareable plates and comfort-style fare. The new added bar, which should also be complete by late summer, will not only add more seating but also showcase their full liquor license. “I’ve been talking with local breweries about bringing in their beers,” she says, adding that her ultimate dream is to make it a brewhouse by day and by night. “From locally-brewed coffee to beer made onsite – that’s what I’d love to offer one day.”

Pamela continues to evolve the community-focused restaurant by adding live music on Sunday afternoons (starting mid-March), a mini farmer’s market (May-October), and patio activities (during warmer months). “I couldn’t do this without the dedication of my go-to team of Brian, Rachel, and Jeffrey. The whole dedicated staff allows me to keep dreaming about what’s next.”
