Loomis Basin Brewing plans brew & BBQ pub in downtown Loomis

IN THE NEW YEAR, the Loomis Basin Brewing Co. is expanding to include a pub (craft beer, barbecue and growlers “to go”) at 3640 Taylor Rd. in downtown Loomis, next to Taylor’s burgers, our magazine has learned.

It comes during a revitalization in downtown Loomis, which will include new streetscapes. Loomis Basin Brewing will continue brewing beer at its current location on Swetzer Rd. The pub is expected to be open in late spring or summer, according to Loomis’ co-owner and brewer Kenny Gowan.

The pub will add to a new “vibe” in Loomis, which includes Popie Wines’ new tasting room at the Blue Goose Fruit Shed. It also is within minutes of the busy I-80 corridor, with travelers going from the Bay Area and Sacramento to Lake Tahoe.

With a motto “always fresh, always local,” Loomis Basin Brewing Co. is family owned and operated. It started production in 2010 and opened its tasting room and beer garden on Swetzer Rd. in Loomis in 2010. Jim Gowan and his son, Kenny, are the brewmasters. The brewery has been expanding its wholesale and bottling line since its founding.

The bottled beer is sold at Bel Air Markets, Corti Brothers Market, Ikeda’s, Newcastle Produce, Nugget Markets, Raley’s Markets, Safeway, SPD Market, Total Wine & More and Whole Foods Market, among other stores.

Its beer rotated on the taps at restaurants, bars, pubs and gastropubs including Beach Hut Deli, Jernigan’s Tap House and Matteo’s Public in Nevada City, Pete’s Pizza and Smiley Guys Smokehouse in Grass Valley, and the Shady Lady Saloon in Sacramento, among dozens of other places.

The Town of Loomis

Loomis remained part of unincorporated Placer County until December 17, 1984, when the Town of Loomis officially incorporated. “The Town was in danger of being annexed by its neighbor Rocklin and the residents voted to incorporate to preserve local control, partly on the issue of preserving the ‘small town’ character and historic structures such as the High Hand and Blue Goose fruit packing sheds which sit between Taylor Road (a segment of historic Highway 40) and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks,” the Town observes.
