Smokehouse's Replacement: Hopmonk Tavern

Dean Biersch to bring his popular eatery, music venue and biergarten to Novato after success in Sebastopol and Sonoma.

Vintage Oaks shopping center will have a new marquee tenant soon: Hopmonk Tavern.

How does that sound?

The is reporting that Dean Biersch, a co-founder of the Gordon Biersch brewing empire, is going to take over the vacant spot previously home to the short-lived Southern Pacific Smokehouse on the shopping center's west side, within view of Highway 101.

Is this a good fit for Novato? Are music fans happy? Are beer fans happy? Are foodies happy?
