Southerleigh Brewing Co. Opening Brewery in San Antonio
Southerleigh Brewing Co. announced a new brewery coming to San Antonio, which will be located at Brooks on the Southeast side of San Antonio. The popular eatery and brewery will continue to brew from its Pearl location, with this second location at Brooks allowing for even more beer production. The second Southerleigh Brewery will be located off of Sidney Brooks east of South New Braunfels, and is slated to open in Summer 2019.
“We’re excited to continue to expand Southerleigh into this neighborhood and introduce our beer to an even larger audience. The Southside of San Antonio has been rapidly expanding and we are thrilled to be joining this growing community at Brooks,” says Jeff Balfour, chef and owner of Southerleigh.
Last year Southerleigh announced a second restaurant location, which will also be located at Brooks and will open in fall 2019. The brewery will be located in a different area of Brooks and function as a separate space.
Southerleigh’s new brewery will be a 6,000 square foot facility and will include a 40-seat tap room, plus additional outdoor seating. The brewery will feature 10 rotating taps that will change seasonally to offer a wide selection of Southerleigh brews. The Southerleigh Brewery will also offer guests tour facilities and be open Monday through Sunday. The facility will allow guests to see the brewing process and tanks from both the tap room as well as the exterior of the building.
The brewery will be located adjacent to a tasting room, which will be a redeveloped chapel built in 1941. Brooks is a leader in adaptive reuse like Historic Hangar 9 and Aviator apartments - taking spaces that had limited public accessibility and giving them new life for the community to enjoy - and are excited to have a partner like Southerleigh that shares the vision of redeveloping the space while maintaining the integrity of the original structure.
“We’re thrilled to be adding another local staple to the Brooks campus,” says Brooks president and CEO Leo Gomez. “With the second Southerleigh restaurant location opening at the heart of The Greenline in 2019, the addition of this brewery will create even more energy around our thriving south San Antonio community.”
Gomez Vazquez International (GVI) Architects, an internationally renowned architecture and master-planning firm, is leading the architectural design for Southerleigh’s Brewery at Brooks. Renderings for the project were created by AR3D. Urbanika Group is the real estate company behind the project. Official opening date to be announced at a later date.
