Buzz Mill Coffee is bringing 24-hour caffeine and booze soon to South Congress with the second location in February. Owner Jason Sabala calls the Pickle Road space "Buzz Mill Homestead," with food, drinks, coffee, and music. The woodsy vibe will live on with the second locations, with a wrap-around lumberjack mural, cedar bars topped with pennies, leather booths, and a separate study room.

Food options will include Frontier, the game meats-focused food outpost currently open in the Riverside location. The menu will include the already-launched charcuterie program, elk, board, and venison from Broken Arrow Ranch, plus Sunday brunch. Kogi Q will set up its truck, too, and there are potential plans to open a dedicated sandwich trailer with one of the Buzz Mill chefs.

Produce for food and drinks will be grown on-site, including herbs, pecans, jalapenos, and lavender. The drinks menu will center on beer, wine from neighbor Infinite Monkey Theorem, and the infusion program.

There are three additional new Buzz Mills in the works, too. The one in San Marcos is set to open in April. Then Sabla is scouting out two new Louisiana locations, specifically New Orleans and possibly Baton Rouge, to open by 2017.
