GLENDALE - There are three restaurant's around Wisconsin that bear the name of the Sprecher Brewery.  Oddly, there wasn't one near the Sprecher Brewery in Glendale.

Now there will be.

The Sprecher Restaurant and Pub will open at the Bayshore Town Center in the fall of 2013.

The restaurant will be located just miles from the Sprecher Brewery in Glendale.

“We are very excited to bring Sprecher’s Pub to our namesake brewery’s home in Glendale,” said Kevin Lederer, who co-owns he restaurant.

“Sprecher Brewing is an icon in the Milwaukee area, particularly in the North Shore, and we always knew that we wanted to open a location here.”

The group already owns restaurants in Lake Geneva, Madison and the Wisconsin Dells.

“I love their root beer and if they’re going to have food, I’m sure it’s going to be good,” Sandra Kent said.

Kent said her favorite Sprecher drink is root beer. And soon she'll be able to sit down and enjoy it at the "Sprecher Restaurant and Pub". Bayshore Mall officials don’t know where the new restaurant will be just yet. But everyone's already excited.

“I think it’ll give Bayshore Mall a little more diversity for families,” states shopper Susan Brockman. “There are a lot of restaurants for adults, but it’ll help bring more families here as well.”

There were some people who took the Sprecher Brewery tour, and they were also thrilled about the new location.

“I’m excited,” exclaims Heath Brozobich, who took part in the tour. “It’ll be nice to not have to travel very far and it’ll be a neat new place to go to.”

8-Twelve MVP Bar & Grill will also be coming to the mall this fall. The other new stores will be Athleta, Paper Source, Ulta Beauty, and Torrid.

Sprecher will open up in October. Officials don’t yet know where it will be located at the mall.
