The year of beer continues to hold true, and here’s the latest newcomer to the scene: ~SOUTHERN PACIFIC BREWING~ will be opening in the Mission’s Media Gulch area, targeting November 1st. Partners behind the project are Anthony LaVia (Gestalt, Matador, Café La Onda) and Chris Lawrence, formerly the sales manager at Speakeasy, along with brewer Andy French, also from Speakeasy. The brewery will be producing primarily ales, from IPAs to specialty Belgian styles. There will also be a menu of pub fare that is designed to be “Mission wallet friendly.” Some potential items include sourdough-crust pizzas and of course a burger. The architect is Seth Boor of Boor Bridges Architecture (who did Four Barrel Coffee and Flora Grubb Gardens)—the look will be part warehouse, part working production brewery, with salvaged elements. There will be over 200 seats, including a huge outdoor patio, and a full bar. What’s cool is the area used to be full of breweries, and the southwest corner of 19th Street and Treat Avenue used to be the Broadway Brewery.
