Southerleigh Brewing Co. plans to open a second brewery at Brooks

December 19, 2018

After a three-year run inside the Pearl, the owner of Southerleigh Fine Food & Brewery has announced plans to expand beer operations.

Jeff Balfour is opening a second Southerleigh brewery at the Brooks complex, near the intersection of Sidney Brooks and South New Braunfels Avenue, on San Antonio’s Southeast Side. The new 6,000 square-foot facility, set to open in the summer, will occupy a space that was built in 1941 and operated as a church until 2016. Gomez Vazquez International Architects is leading the design of the building.

The brewery will include a 40-seat tap room with an outside seating area, with 10 taps that will rotate out according to the season. There also are plans to run regular tours of the brewing operations.

“We’re excited to continue to expand Southerleigh into this neighborhood and introduce our beer to an ever larger audience,” Balfour said in a statement.

According to a Southerleigh media representative, the beers at the two brewing operations are likely to vary, but that plan is still under discussion.

Sourtherleigh also is opening a second restaurant at Brooks, slated to open in fall 2019, but the brewery operation will be in a separate space and area of the facility.
