It's been a little over six years since Sacramento Brewing Company closed its doors but as one of the early craft breweries in Sacramento many beer fans and current brewery operators remember the beers fondly. This year for Sacramento Beer Week 8 breweries are coordinating to recreate some of the beers for a special tap takeover at Rubicon Brewing!
Capm & Jeri Peterson and Peter Hoey will be present for the event to talk about the beers and remember the old times! Many of our local breweries are contributing to this project and special guest Noble Aleworks will be making SBC's IPA recipe. Noble Aleworks is the owner of the brewhouse that was installed at Sacramento Brewing Company's Oasis location so what better than a SBC beer brewed on the former SBC brewhouse!
