The long-dormant ballpark-adjacent digs that once held Proper Gastropub and an outpost of Wine Steals has two new proprietors.
Stone Brewing Co. is taking half of the space for a new Stone Company Store that will give the brewery two downtown footholds; earlier this month, they opened a store just a mile west on Kettner Boulevard.
CEO & co-founder Greg Koch says that the store will be their standard mix of tasting room and beer to-go options, but because of an existing pizza oven in the space, this Stone Company Store will also have a "modest food component".
Though CH Projects is confirmed to occupy the other half of the building, Koch says the two businesses won't co-mingle though they'll share a common central vestibule.
Before the hospitality group turns its attention to this location, CH Projects is focused on launching Ironside Oyster and their second UnderBelly.
The Stone Company Store should open by Spring 2014.
