Ben Barker, general manager and a co-owner of Louisville-based Troll Pub Under the Bridge, said construction will hopefully begin on the Dayton location by the end of the year or the beginning of 2017.

As Dayton.com’s Mark Fisher reported in April, Troll Pub plans to open a 250-seat bar and restaurant in the vacant Weustoff and Getz Co. building, 210 Wayne Ave., as part of the effort to extend the Oregon District.

The food, including the restaurant signature beer cheese and beer cheese burger, will be the same as what is sold in Louisville.

“We sell enough beer cheese here to keep the doors open,” Barker said.  

Louisville-based developer City Properties Group has said it will convert the Weustoff and Getz Co. building into about 40 loft-style apartments. As many as three commercial tenants would be on the ground floor.

The business also plans to have a similar collegial relationship with its Dayton neighbors as it does with neighboring businesses in Louisville, Barker said.
