Granite City to bring craft brew, wood-fired pizza and seafood to Hurstbourne Lane

Minneapolis-based Granite City Food & Brewery restaurant plans to open a new restaurant on Hurstbourne Lane about this time next year.

With 28 units, Granite City is known for its extensive and wide-ranging menu featuring wood-fired pizzas, flatbreads, seafood, sandwiches, burgers, salads … you get the drift … about 90 freakin’ items, according to a news release from the company. Click here to see the lineup. The facility will be built from the ground up using a bit more than 2 acres of land—which we know goes for oh, so cheaply—along South Hurstbourne Parkway, just south of Shelbyville Road, meaning headed toward the heart of Chain Land near Chili’s and Romano’s Macaroni Grill. Technically, the development is known as The Vinnings. (According to Business First, John Schnatter—yeah, Papa John—owns The Vinnings.) Once opened, it’ll be the chain’s 31st unit.

Its addition to the market means Louisville gets another craft brewery, its seventh overall. GCFB does five basic brews covering five styles and rolls out seasonals. Click the link to see what they have.

If you can’t wait to see what this new spot will be like, the nearest one is in Carmel, Ind., on the north side of Indianapolis.
