Updates on openings and plans: Morgan Hill El Toro Brewing Company Brewpub (building) has sold…no word on the future of El Toro Brewing (business). Bubbles Wine Bar is now Bubbles and Brew: Food, Wine, Beer with an outdoor beer garden. Kelly Brewing hosted a grand opening on March 9-10. Gilroy Promised Land opened on March 8. Golden State Brewery will reopen this Spring. Lonely Oak Brew Pub and Pizzeria (7373 Monterey Road) a new brewery is targeting a July 2019 opening. Vines & Pints (7511 Monterey Road) a new tap room with limited gourmet menu and an opening targeted for November 2019. Hideaway Hopyards is a local beer-related agricultural venture by Scott Alexander and Daniel Goldsmith. They are growing American Hops. There is a limited number hop growers in California. Hops are typically imported from Washington and Oregon and are normally last year’s crop. Fresh hops have been a rarity but not anymore if Scott and Daniel have a say in the matter. Fresh hops are used to make a seasonal IPA. Some local breweries have already made commitments to order from their 2019 crop. This is Hideaway Hopyard’s third year and they are looking forward to their biggest harvest this summer. Hideaway Hopyard is located on Buena Vista Avenue in Gilroy.
