Stepping through Feed Co.’s door, the atmosphere instantly warms around you. Rustic floors, quirky Edison bulbs here and there—it’s a pretty cool place.
“We’ve got an at-home-feeling going on,” says owner operator Miguel Morales. “Whether you’re in a suit or flip flops and shorts, you’ll fit in. It’s a come as you are kind of place.” That idea of making people feel at home set the platform for both the drink and food menus.
“We used nice, southern liquors. Bourbon, Chattanooga Whiskey. You know, drinks that bring warmth, comfort,” says Heather Jennings, the mastermind behind the cocktails. Nothing makes you feel more at home than being warm and cozy. At Feed Co., you’ll just find it in the bottom of a glass. Not buying the “we are family” bit? Take a look at their drink menu and you’ll find more than one drink named after regular customers.
Mama’s Fix, a Cosmopolitan-style cocktail, was a drink ordered so regularly by a customer named Mama that they added it to the menu. “People kept asking, ‘What drink are you making?’ and I’d say, ‘I’m making Mama’s Fix’ and it just kind of stuck!” says Heather.
The simplicity of the cocktail menu is echoed in its local, fresh ingredients and everything is hand-juiced in house. No store-bought sugary cocktail mixes here!
The extensive brew selection is the brainchild of Owner and Partner Dustin Choate, and Bar Manager Michael Erhardt, and it seems they know their stuff considering beer outsells everything. The only time it has a rival is in the summertime, when the cocktails start flowing as people finally get a chance to enjoy Feed Co.’s old truck bay turned patio. And with spring just around the corner, well, you know where you can find everyone.
