Bob’s Burgers and Brew is set to open its first South Sound location in December at 15706 Meridian Ave. E. in Puyallup, across from the Sunrise Village shopping center.

Ground broke at the end of July, and storm water drainpipes and underground plumbing and electrical were installed last week.

The eatery will have 16 beers on tap and more than a dozen in the bottle, although the menu has not been finalized, according to its Facebook page. Hiring will begin late November or early December, with information available later this fall.

This will be the 12th location of the Washington state franchise that began in 1982.
