Pint Nights

One of the new events we will be holding at Sac Brew are "pint night" promotions where we feature one brewery's beers for an evening. Usually this will involve a sampler set ranging from 4-8 beers and a full pint in that brewery's logo glass, which you get to keep.

Our first pint night is this Wednesday January 21st with Firestone Walker Brewing Company. We will be pouring Double Barrel Ale (DBA), Pale 31, Union Jack, and Walker's Reserve Porter. Four - 4 ounce samples of each beer, a full pint of any of the four and a Firestone Walker pint glass for you to keep will cost $13. Then $4 refills of Firestone beers all night.

In addition there will be a Cask of Nectar IPA on a beer engine available in pints and half pints.

As an aside, we did have a 21st Amendment Pint night scheduled for the 28th of January but we needed to reschedule that event. We are talking with the guys from 21A and will set a date in March soon.

Brewery Update

It is with a heavy heart that I write this blog telling you that after 13 years we have closed the doors at our Citrus Heights location, The Oasis. In these economic times the decision to close the Oasis allows us to focus on our strength: making high quality, award-winning beer. We are closing the Oasis so we can focus on our original restaurant and brewpub and continue provide our customers with world class craft beer and fantastic food.

I want to dispel some rumors that have been floating around the brewing scene at this time:
  • Our Town and Country location is OPEN for business as usual.
  • We did not declare bankruptcy
  • We are not withdrawing from distributing our beers to the greater Sacramento area, Bay Area, and Southern California Markets.
As an aside, any kegs and taps that were purchased from The Oasis can be returned to our Town and Country Brewpub to get your deposit refunded.

While there will be some changes in our product line we will still have all our tasty craft beers available at our brewpub and in finer markets, bars and restaurants. Stay tuned here, we have some great events, beer releases and announcements that will be made in short time.
