They’re breathing new life into an old building. There’s a welcome addition to Third Street in Bend. It's been shuttered for almost three years, but now the building that formerly housed Ernesto’s Italian Restaurant is soon to open as the brew shop. Co-owner Tom Gilles says they are hoping to open sometime this summer: “We've been looking for a place to expand our business for the next several months. We decided to look at that building, something that I always thought would be a great location. Love the building; it's just a classic Bend monument. So we're hoping to move in sometime in the early to mid summer." Gilles says their business is doing so well, that they needed to expand, and now they can have an actual pub in the basement with food service as well as the retail shop on the upper level. Gilles says they will be looking to hire more people in a few months.
