Renowned brewery chain Gordon Biersch will soon have a location in Harbor East. We on the 1000 block of Lancaster Street have known something was coming in—what with the excessive jack-hammering and construcion work that goes on everyday—but we were just tipped off that it's going to be a Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant.
According to a Harbor East building manager, the restaurant is planning to open in mid-October, will have outdoor seating, and brew eight tanks of beer on the premesis.
The Gordon Biersch chain specializes in beer brewed on site and food made from scratch (like their famous garlic fries). There are already two locations in Maryland (Rockville and Annapolis) and one in D.C., but this will be Baltimore's first. While Gordon Biersch is a chain, this certainly isn't Applebee's. The restaurant is known for its award-winning handcrafted brews, particularly the German-style lagers and hefeweizens—that many patrons choose to drink from a boot.
