FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — NOV 27, 2013 –
By Steve Marschke
The lease wasn’t – quite – signed as the News-Ledger went to press on Nov. 26. But it appeared that a local beer house operator had found a home for his planned new pub in West Sacramento.
Yolo Brewing Company has probably locked down a spot at 1520 Terminal Street, in an industrial area near the Port of West Sacramento, Harbor Boulevard, and the freeway. That address comes from a legal document filed with Yolo County.
According to the Facebook page for owner “Brewhouse Concepts Land and Management” of Fair Oaks, the facility plans to open in early 2014, with the opportunity to “craft your own small batch beers onsite or enjoy our freshly crafted draft bers in the tasting room.”
Mike Costello, one of the proponents of the project, formerly operated the “Brew It Up!” taphouse and “personal brewery” in downtown Sacramento. He earlier tried to nail down a brewpub location on South River Road in West Sacramento, but negotiations fell through.
The News-Ledger traded emails with Costello yesterday morning, and he said he hoped to sign the new lease yesterday.
A mini-brewpub called Bike Dog Brewing opened earlier this year on Industrial Boulevard in West Sacramento, and Sacramento’s Rubicon opened a production-only facility near Ikea also in 2013.
(EDITOR’S NOTE, DEC 2: Yolo Brewing Company’s Mike Costello confirmed last week that the pub signed its Terminal Street lease.)
