Von Ebert Brewing, the sort-of new brewery from the guy behind Portland’s Fat Head’s, is already going to open a second location on the east side. After closing the Ohio-based brewery’s local outpost, the Pearl District brewpub transformed into a new, independent brewery this March with The Commons star brewer Sean Burke at the helm. Now, owner Tom S. Cook is moving onto the Glendoveer Golf Course, “on the 10th hole,” the press release reads — locals may remember it as the former location of the Ringside Grill. The opening is not quite set in stone yet, but it should open early this summer with separate brewing operations beginning in September.
The new brewery, located at 14021 NE Glisan Street, appears to be a tad more experimental than the Pearl — the east location will have a mixed-culture and sour setup for German lagers, saisons, and Belgian-style beers. The whole shebang will seat 250 in a dining room, at a full-service bar, and on two patios in the lodge-style brewpub. And parents, congrats: The whole thing is kid-friendly all hours of the day. Stay tuned for updates on menu and exact opening dates.
