Plano’s Newest Brewery Has Arrived

Union Bear Brewing brings comforting pub fare and plenty of beer to The Boardwalk in Granite Park

Union Bear Brewing, Plano’s newest spot for a pint of craft beer and pub fare, has officially made its debut.

The brewery and restaurant kicked open the doors at The Boardwalk in Granite Park on Wednesday, according to a press release. The space, located at 5880 State Highway 121, occupies 7,250 square feet indoors, and boasts a 3,000 square foot patio that will offer popular bar games like bocce ball and shuffleboard, along with its very own hole at which golfers can practice their putts.

If the brewery sounds familiar to drinkers who enjoyed brews and pizzas at Union Bear in West Village, that’s because it is. When Union Bear shuttered its Uptown location in 2014, chef Matt Spillers sold the brewery’s brand to 33 Restaurant Group, which operates Taverna Rossa in Plano, along with McKinney’s Cadillac Pizza Pub and Heritage Pizza and Taproom in The Colony.

As far as the food is concerned, Chef Sean Sanders will serve up a menu of pretty standard pub fare, including sliders, a fried chicken sandwich, flatbreads, and a patty melt. Union Bear’s own line of brews, including a blonde ale, white IPA, and stout, will be on offer at the bar, along with more beers on tap, whiskeys, and wines by the glass or bottle.

Union Bear Brewing is now open for dinner service only, starting at 4 p.m. The restaurant will begin lunch service on January 8, starting at 11 a.m.
