Within the past few days, readers have sent tweets with photos of brewing equipment being delivered
to soon-to-be-Gordon Biersch
at 100 M and inside the space
at the Boilermaker Shops
that will become Bluejacket
No official timeframe on when either of these restaurants will open, though a Biersch employee told the Post
that he "expects the new Biersch branch to be operating in time for the Craft Brewers Conference in March and the Nats' home opener in April."
As for the other beer joint on tap for the neighborhood (see what I did there?), there doesn't appear to be any action so far in the Willie's Brew and 'Que space at the Boilermaker Shops, but with owner Xavier Cervera's long-in-the-works redo of the Hawk 'n' Dove reportedly about to debut
, perhaps he'll then be able to shift resources both to Willie's and to the Park Tavern at Canal Park
This Esquire interview
with Bluejacket bigshot Greg Engert says that the bar will open "in May."
