SURG Restaurant group renames former Rodgers, Braun eatery

8-Twelve restaurant in Brookfield

BROOKFIELD, WI (WTAQ) - Aaron Rodgers' and Ryan Braun's former restaurant in Brookfield will get a new name and a new décor. 

SURG Restaurants has owned the Eight-12 eatery west of Milwaukee in which Brewers' slugger Braun and Packers' quarterback Rodgers were involved. 

Friday, SURG said it would rename the place as the Hom Wood Fired Grill, with a new menu starting October 7th and design changes within a month. 

Earlier this month, SURG cut off its business relationship with Braun, after he was given a season-ending drug suspension. SURG took Braun's name off its Graffito restaurant in downtown Milwaukee, and said it would shut down at the end of the year.

SURG said it was still interested in a relationship with Rodgers. A new 8-12 Restaurant was being built in Glendale, but there's no immediate word on what will happen once that opens.
