SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Mission Valley's Gordon Biersch restaurant may be closing, but the brewery location will live on under a new local eatery.
Puesto will take over the location of the well-known restaurant after it closes in July, according to the company. The Mission Center Road spot will be the Mexican restaurant's third location.
Gordon Biersch is set to leave Mission Valley on July 16, though no reason was immediately given for the closure, according to paperwork filed by the company.
Puesto will reopen the on-site brewery and try to retain as many of Gordon Biersch's staff as possible. The new restaurant plans to open in Fall 2019.
The on-site brewery will give Puesto the opportunity to develop their own beer program, after collaborations with San Diego and Mexico breweries for years, in addition to its signature margaritas and cocktails.
“The Puesto team has been doing cervecería collaborations for years now, working primarily with cervecerías in Mexico to create our own San Diego meets Mexico cervezas," Puesto co-owner Eric Adler said. "We’ve been looking for a space in San Diego for some time where we could develop our own cerveza program. This new space gives us the opportunity not only to brew, but continue bringing our innovative approach to authentic Mexican flavors to more of our hometown.”
Puesto currently operates six restaurants around California, offering a variety of handmade tacos, bowls, and street food-style plates.
