The restaurant, which will be open to the public, is expected to open in mid-June, Wise said. The new restaurant will offer some items from the Scotty’s Brewhouse menu in addition to steak, fresh seafood and Sunday brunch. Scotty’s Brew Club will also feature an upscale wine list and wine lockers, carry-out growlers and wine on tap.

Wise said he appreciates the opportunity to experiment with a new concept and menu.

“I like it because it breaks the mold of what traditional restaurants are supposed to do and where to locate,” he said. “It is thinking outside the box and taking a risk. That’s part of the entrepreneurial spirit.”

“I’m excited,” he said. “It’s exciting to spread your wings and paint a new canvas every now and then.” – Jolene Ketzenberger
