Sasquatch Brewery to open its doors this summer

HILLSDALE - Bringing the welcoming feel of an English pub to Hillsdale, Sasquatch Brewery will open up in the space formerly occupied by Alba Osteria and Enoteca this summer.

After several years of experimenting with at-home brewing, Sasquatch Brewery owner Tom Sims, a 20-year Hillsdale resident, said he decided to take his venture to the next level.

'We've been making some pretty good beers, so I figured, why not open a brewpub?' he said. 'Hillsdale could use one more.'

Featuring both indoor and outdoor seating, Sasquatch Brewery, to be located at 6440 S.W. Capitol Hwy., will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, serving traditional pub fare such as hamburgers and sausages as well as vegetarian options.

Sims said he'll be brewing seven varieties of beer on the premises in addition to hosting guest taps.

The brewery will also host live acoustic and jazz music and hold occasional open mic nights.

'We'd like it to be a family place,' Sims said. 'We want to get involved with community and have a place where people can meet up or run into each other. We hope to have a place that anyone would feel comfortable going to.'
