As we reported last month, Half Door Brewing is going into that nifty white house on the corner of 9th and Island in East Village (903-915 Island Ave.). It's a brewpub spinoff from the Drayne family (dad Daniel owns The Field, son Dan Jr. will be head brewer at Half Door, along with sis Stacy as GM). Junior prepped for the gig by working the last two years at Coronado Brewing Company. They've also named an exec chef in Brandon Brooks, who developed a suds-centric menu at Ritual Tavern in North Park and most recently at the now-closed SOL Bistro at Liberty Station.
