The May 2018 passport has 65 breweries listed and describes another seven under construction. In early 2017, 49 breweries were listed--since then six have closed and 22 have opened or will be open by June 2018. We shared the map below at a few Beer Week events, and a navigable version can be found here.
The California Craft Brewers Association is holding its annual Summit this week in Sacramento, and we couldn't be more thrilled to welcome everyone from industry leaders to casual enthusiasts. We hope you enjoy time gathered in the heart of California, celebrating our state as the greatest beer-making region in the world. And if you have a moment to visit our local breweries, be sure to check out our interactive map that includes detail on recent closures and near-term grand openings. Of course, feel free to holler with questions or comments! For more info on Sacramento's beer scene and beyond, Visit Sacramento has you covered.
And we hope attendees like the souvenir postcard map (shown below) stashed in everyone's grab bag at the Summit.
With the news of Rubicon and American River closing, we are sad but remain committed to a vibrant future, with sincere cheers to those who blazed the trail ... a poster we created last summer sums it up, a copy of which still hangs behind the bar at Rubicon.
Eight years ago there were only eight breweries in the greater Sacramento area, and now there are 54! This animation shows shows the expansion!
Dragas Brewing and Roseville Brewing Co. are permanently closed, but Fort Rock Brewing is now open. Blank spot on passport?... not to worry. While not required to collect rewards, there will be opportunities to pick up "wild card" stamps that can be used in place of closed breweries. First chance will be during Beer Week 2017--stay tuned!
