2012 is shaping up to be a break out year for breweries opening up new venues in the Bay Area. MateVeza joined the growing list today when they announced plans for a restaurant and small brewery called Cervecería de MateVeza, opening up in San Francisco’s Mission District next spring. The venue, which will be located at 3801 18th Street, will source local food to “further enhance the culinary experience of pairing craft beer with fine food.”

Here’s a few more details from the press release:

The highlight of Cervecería de MateVeza’s Argentinian cuisine will be El Porteño empanadas made in San Francisco with ingredients such as Prather Ranch organic, dry-aged, grass-fed beef, Fulton Valley all natural chicken, and organic cheese, herbs, and vegetables. El Porteño’s founder Joseph Ahearne learned the recipe for his buttery, flaky empanadas with premium ingredients from his Argentinian mother.

MateVeza founder Jim Woods will also be joined by prolific San Francisco beer-tender Matt Coelho. A Certified Cicerone™ like Woods, Coelho has honed his craft at such venerated San Francisco beer haunts as City Beer, Church Key, and the Black Horse. Woods and Coelho will serve a variety of MateVeza and guest beer selections on tap and in bottles. Growlers and select bottles of guest beer will also be available for purchase to go.
