Union Bear Opens in Plano


Union Bear Brewing, the highly anticipated brewery and restaurant from {33} Restaurant Group is now open at The Boardwalk in Granite Park (5880 State Highway 121).  Plano’s first independent brewpub and restaurant is now serving dinner daily beginning at 4pm and will add lunch hours beginning at 11am on January 8.

Inspired by the West Coast casual beer approach, onsite brewers craft Union Bear’s signature line of brews including UB Blonde, Amber, White IPA and Stout as well as 33 featured taps, extensive bar offerings, hand selected whiskies and wine list with offerings available by the glass or bottle.  

Chef Sean Sanders takes helm of the kitchen with a menu of chef-driven takes on American pub fare featuring appetizers, soups and salads, baked flatbreads, entrees, sandwiches and desserts.  Menu favorites including Goat Cheese Stuffed Peppers, Duck Leg Sliders, Beer Braised Short Rib Pappardelle, Chimichurri Hanger Steak and a Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich accompany Union Bear signature plates such as the UB Caesar Salad, Patty Melt and The Honey Pig flatbread.

“We are extremely proud of the development of this concept and even more proud of the team we have assembled to execute our vision to be Plano and Frisco’s very own, local, neighborhood-brewpub,” says Preston Lancaster, Founder and CEO of {33} Restaurant Group.

With 7,250 square feet of indoor space and a 3,000 square foot patio, the approachable and communal space is a family friendly concept offering games including a golf putting hole, bocce ball and shuffleboard with a lake view.  Union Bear will also offer growlers and crowlers to-go.

“We couldn’t think of a better home for Union Bear Brewing and are thrilled to be a part of the beautiful Granite Park Boardwalk, they’ve truly done an amazing job with this development,” says Tony Smith, VP and Partner of {33} Restaurant Group.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Union Bear Brewing to The Boardwalk, a unique and cool waterfront escape with restaurants, patios and lounge areas conveniently located in Granite Park at the intersection of the Sam Rayburn Tollway (121) and the Dallas North Tollway,” said Greg Fuller, President and C.O.O. at Granite Properties. “The Boardwalk is a top restaurant destination for our customers and for the growing population in Collin County. Additional restaurants, overlooking our luxurious Hilton hotel at Granite Park, will open soon,” he added.
