Sockeye Brewing will close Cole Rd. restaurant amid ‘Asian plaza’ revamp

The Idaho Asian Plaza at Cole Rd. and Ustick Rd. in Boise plans to bring a host of experiences from Asia to Idaho. But the Sockeye Grill & Brewery won’t be part of the plan.

Sockeye announced it will close its original location next Saturday, March 30th.

“We have negotiated with the landlord and determined it will be best for Sockeye and The Idaho Asian Plaza for us to re-locate our brewpub to a new location,” owners Fred & Linda Schuerman said in a statement. “This will allow the property owner to continue to redevelop the entire shopping center to align with their vision for the property.”

Sockeye opened in the former Peg Leg Annie’s location on Cole Rd. in 2002. It expanded operations with a second, larger brewing facility and restaurant on Fairview Ave. in 2012. The Fairview location will remain open.

The Schuermans say they hope to relocate the original restaurant and brewpub. A poll asks where they should open. Options including SE Boise, Meridian, Eagle and as far as Sun Valley.

Idaho Asian Plaza is undergoing a makeover and revamp of its tenant mix under new owners.
