Mark Herman, owner of the Flatted Fifth Blues & BBQ at Potter’s Mill, is opening a second location in Dimensional Brewing Co. in Dubuque.

Dimensional Brewing Company in Dubuque and Flatted Fifth Blues & BBQ at Potter’s Mill of Bellevue announced a new collaborative venture — Flatted Fifth at Dimensional Brewing. The barbecue and southern food restaurant will open its second location at the Dubuque brewery in the spring of 2020.

The restaurant will serve a limited version of its current menu at Potter’s Mill and a few new appetizer items at Dimensional Brewing during the brewery’s normal business hours. Flatted Fifth will continue operations at its Potter’s Mill location.

It is hoped that this collaboration of regional businesses will continue to develop the community culture of Lower Main Street in Dubuque, provide the customers of Dimensional Brewing integrated food and beverage options while increasing Flatted Fifth’s brand awareness in Dubuque, organizers said.

Flatted Fifth Blues & BBQ at Potter’s Mill opened in August 2014 in Bellevue and has grown into a regional destination for Cajun and barbecue foodies and blues lovers. The internationally known blues venue welcomes award-winning blues and jazz artists from around the world to their stage on a regular basis.

Dimensional Brewing Co. opened in November 2018 in Dubuque, adding to the ever-popular craft beer scene and is known for its tap room and rotating selection of house made brews.
