There will be much more than a few food trucks to take in at the new outdoor spot. In recent months, certain bits of promising — and highly entertaining — information have been popping up letting us know that the long wait for a suburban Truck Yard location should soon come to an end.. The original Truck Yard on Greenville Avenue has been an outdoor day-drinking hot spot since its debut in 2013.
purchased Barney Smith’s Toilet Seat Art Museum, a 1,400-piece collection of decorated toilet seats that’s called San Antonio home for decades. The funky collection is said to be one of the new Truck Yard’s attention-grabbing focal points, with Boso telling the San Antonio Express-News he intends “to put it front and center and make it a top 20 roadside attraction in America.”
Another interesting element for the new Truck Yard will be Beard Science, a brewpub that “will focus on wild, mixed and Belgian-style fermentation in order to create small batches of classic sour beer,” according to Hajibashi. The brewpub will employ “wooden tanks called foeders (pronounced FOOD-er) enabling us to manage the individual strains of bacteria that give sour beer its character.”
The toilet seat collection and brewpub will be joined by a tiki bar, karaoke room, a live music schedule and a cheesesteak stand similar to the one at the other Truck Yard locations. When it opens, the Grandscape Truck Yard will become neighbors with a number of bustling restaurants, including the KISS-backed Rock and Brews, live music hub Lava Cantina, a Mi Cocina and Heritage Pizza and Taproom, among many other retail and entertainment destinations.
The Truck Yard's new location opens this summer at 5959 Grove Lane, The Colony.
