USA, CA: Hoppy Brewing Company readying two new locations in Sacramento
There will be a whole lot of Hoppy happening this summer as the team from Hoppy Brewing Company readies not one, but two new locations, the Sactown Magazine reported on May 15.
Hoppys Railyard Kitchen & Hopgarden, a new community brewpub, will open in Old Sacramento, while a brewery and tasting room will open just off Broadway.
The restaurant will take over the spaces that formerly housed Ten22 and District restaurants on 2nd Street, both of which closed on March 2.
The original Hoppy Brewing Company vacated its longtime home on Folsom Blvd in February, and will occupy the new 9,000-square-foot location that is owned by the Harvego Restaurant Group (which also owns the Firehouse Restaurant in Old Sacramento). The back patio will be converted into a hopgarden, and the space formerly occupied by District will be used for take out orders.
With the new DoCo completion nearby, I see a lot of potential in Old Sacramento, says founder Troy Paski. I just think that theres a lot going on and a lot of opportunities for us there.
Paski tapped Kent Souza, former executive chef of Kupros Craft House and Roxy Restaurant & Bar, to lead Hoppys new kitchen.
His fresh, farm-to-fork-focused menu will combine New American Delta cuisine with a few of the restaurants classics like the Hoppy turkey burger (with bacon, cheddar and jalapeño aioli on sourdough) and buffalo wings.
Meanwhile, the beverage menu will include four 4-ounce samplers from Hoppys 24 beers on tap, like the Golden Nugget cream ale, Hoppy Face amber ale and Total Eclipse black ale, as well as a lineup of wine, lagers and ciders that Paski and the team will source from local breweries and taprooms.
The new tasting room-slash-brewery is slated to open in June just off Broadway at 2425 24th St. next to the new Real Pie Company, and will produce all Hoppy-branded beers.
