BJ's Restaurants, Inc. announced the opening of a larger-format brewhouse restaurant in Boulder, Colorado, on August 27, at the Twenty Ninth Street retail center. The new restaurant replaces an older, smaller-format BJ's Pizza and Grill location that was opened in the Pearl Street trade area in 1997. The new BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse is approximately 8,000 square feet, contains seating for approximately 265 guests, and features BJ's extensive menu including BJ's signature deep-dish pizza, award-winning handcrafted beer and famous Pizookie dessert. BJ's highly-detailed, contemporary decor and unique video statement, including BJ's 103-inch plasma display as well as several high-definition flat panel televisions, creates a high-energy dining environment. Hours of operation are from 11:00 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday, and 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

"We are very excited to bring the most current evolution of the BJ's restaurant concept to our many loyal fans in the Boulder community," says Jerry Deitchle, chairman and CEO. "The operational brewery in our new Boulder restaurant will also serve as an R&D facility to support the creation of additional innovative BJ's handcrafted beers. Our new Boulder restaurant is our 10th new restaurant opening to date this year. We remain solidly on track to open as many as six more restaurants before the end of 2012. Additionally, our potential new restaurant opening pipeline for 2013 is already in solid shape."

BJ's Restaurants, Inc. currently owns and operates 124 casual dining restaurants under the BJ's Restaurant & Brewery, BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse, BJ's Pizza & Grill and BJ's Grill brand names.
