About Les Locke, Brewer at Southerleigh
Born and raised in San Antonio, he found home- brewing in the Marines while stationed in Hawaii at the age of 19. After coming back to San Antonio to start college I found that San Antonio lacked a brewing culture and scene, so I moved to Eugene Oregon where I went to school for an undergraduate and Masters in economics. It was here where I found myself starting my professional brewing career in a small brew pub. After moving back home to San Antonio and completing an MPA and giving up being a full time economist, I built and started Branchline Brewing as the head brewer where I spent a couple of years before I was recruited to come work with Chef Jeff Balfour here at Southerleigh as the head brewer.
Southerleigh Fine Food & Brewery, helmed by San Antonio Chef Jeff Balfour, brings a modern take on Texas’ cross-cultural cuisine to Pearl. Influenced by the coastal classics of Chef Balfour’s upbringing in Galveston married with the comfort of southern cuisine, Southerleigh boasts a curated, seasonally shifting menu that reflects Chef Balfour’s innovative craftsmanship. Southerleigh will house a custom manufactured brewery designed by Portland Kettle Works, and brings brewing back to Pearl offering 21 different beers on tap. Southerleigh is located at 136 East Grayson, Suite 120, on the ground floor in the historic Pearl brewhouse.
