A new group is preparing to modernize the former Old Vienna restaurant in Shell Beach, taking over the lease of the location that has seen some turnover in the last couple of years. Several local entrepreneurs with significant local bar and restaurant experience, including Bill Hales, Meygan Hales, Ron Meier, Eric DeMatteo, Mike Spangler and Crystal Jewel, intend to open Shell Beach Brewhouse later this year. The partners expect to enhance the interior of the 4,200 square foot space, open up the patio and feature over 30 beers on tap – largely American craft beers – and American pub food in a family-friendly environment.
