Foster’s brewery-to-be gets a name

screen-shot-2016-11-29-at-2-40-20-pmFrom a distance, nothing’s changed at all. An empty parking lot surrounds Paldo Market; the doors are even open. There seems to be little activity, but it isn’t obvious the Korean market has actually closed—just as it was hard to tell if it was actually open when it was in business.

But when you get a little closer, you see a completely gutted space inside. And, indeed, Paldo is just a shell of its former self, now simply a placeholder for what will soon occupy the building.

What we’ve been rumoring to be true for months can now be confirmed by a recent liquor license application for the property. An OLCC listing (below) for 6112 SE Foster indicates two things: a change of name and type of the current liquor license, as well as what kind of business will eventually be operating there.

And now we know, Foster will, indeed, be landing a brewery in the near future. Here’s an early welcome to Assembly Brewing.

The former Asian grocer closed last year after years of decline, and it will soon give way to Foster’s newest drinking establishment. Not that we needed more places to drink, but a brewery would certainly be a welcome addition to the neighborhood.

We’ll await more details regarding type of beer to be brewed, food offerings, and whether it’ll be family friendly or not. But for now, we’ll just sit back and wait for the renovations to get further underway—a liquor license is one thing, but there’s plenty of work to be done on the building before it’s ready for business.

    You’ve done your homework. Just to put it out there, it will be about a year before we open.
    Cheers, George
