Nastee Dogs owner reinventing the biz

For a couple months now, Nastee Dogs has been closed with a sign posted on the door saying they’re remodeling.

Turns out the remodel is more than just a facelift; it’s a complete rebranding.

Owner Paul Moskvich has teamed up with some investors and a French cook from California to build a new restaurant.

The theme will use French techniques, be produce driven and focus on using seasonal ingredients.

“I’m really excited to be able to cook,” Moskvich said. “With Nastee Dogs, we really couldn’t do much because we were so limited in how and what we could cook. Now with an actual kitchen, we can do whatever we want.”

The Nastee Dogs brand won’t disappear completely, however. Moskvich said he will occasionally use the Nastee Dogs name and style to sell hot dogs during special events in Prescott.

Moskvich is hoping to open the new restaurant sometime in December, but does not yet have a set date.

Black Hole Beer Company owner leaving area; production may cease

The owner of Black Hole Beer Company, Eric Marichal, is leaving the state for a job opportunity and is currently trying to sell his business. Depending on how the selling process goes, it may mean the end of Black Hole beer for the Prescott area.

Marichal first opened a Black Hole Beer Company tap room off of Iron Springs Road in Prescott back in April 2014.

He closed that location in April 2016, but maintained ownership and operation of a small brewery production facility in Prescott Valley.

Since the closure, he has focused on barrel aging beer and recently released a series of beers currently being sold at Park Plaza Liquor Deli.

He said he is looking for someone to either take over Black Hole Beer Company or simply take over the production facility to start his or her own brewery.
