The large new brewpub called BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse at the Austin Landing development in Miami Twp. has set an opening date of Monday, Sept. 23, according to Shumaila Panhwar, marketing coordinator for the Huntington Beach, California-based restaurant chain.
A ceremonial ribbon-cutting with local chamber of commerce officials is set for Sept. 20, but Sept. 23 will be the first day the pub will be open to the public, Panhwar said this afternoon, Sept. 9. The ribbon-cutting had been set for Sept. 6 but was postponed last week.
BJ’s Restaurant is housed in an 8,300-square-foot stand-alone facility that is at the Austin Boulevard entrance to Austin Landing.
The chain operates more than 130 pubs nationwide, including one at the Tri-County Mall in Cincinnati and two in the Columbus area. Its menu include its signature deep-dish pizza as well as salads, sandwiches, soups, pastas and other entrees. The company operates several microbreweries in addition to using contract brewers to produce and distribute BJ’s proprietary beers throughout the chain.
