Coming Soon: Noble Hops Gastropub

Posted By on Wed, Jan 26, 2011 at 8:19 AM

The two brothers who own and operate both local Vero Amore pizza restaurants are opening a new restaurant in Oro Valley called Noble Hops Gastropub.

If you’ve never heard of a gastropub, imagine your neighborhood bar, but a bit classier in both the atmosphere and food departments. The concept is massively popular in Europe and in larger cities across America.

Aric Mussman says Noble Hops Gastropub will serve 28 small-production beers on tap and 40 more in bottles. Some beers will be so rare that less than five kegs will ever make it into the country. The selection will rotate on a regular basis, and ceremonies will mark the tapping of especially notable kegs.

On the menu: American-style tapas, homemade pretzels served with made-from-scratch mustard, gourmet cheese plates and fish and chips made with Chilean sea bass breaded in panko crumbs. The menu hasn’t been finalized yet, but Mussman summed it up thusly: “We’re talking real food, no preservatives, everything made from really high-quality ingredients.”

Mussman said the same people who handled Janos Wilder’s Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails are handling the design and architecture. An indoor/outdoor bar boasting a view of the Catalina Mountains will seat 45. A lounge area out back will be outfitted with comfortable couches.

Noble Hops Gastropub is expected to open this spring.
