New craft beer breweries planned for Grass Valley

A new brewery and taproom is planned for 141-143 Main St. in Grass Valley later this year. It includes a 1,700 sq.-ft. taproom with bar and table seating; a kitchen area; and about 5,600 sq.-ft. for the brewery and storage area. Grass Valley elected officials have been seeking to bring a brewery to town—noticing the success in Nevada City with ol’ Republic Brewery and Three Forks Bakery & Brewing Co.

The 1849 Brew Pub at 464 Sutton Way in Grass Valley will include a brewery, wine tasting room, outdoor beer garden and pizza oven. It is planned for later this year. Music will play inside the pub on weekends. The brewery is adjacent to The Union newspaper in a space where it once was printed. It is now printed at the Sacramento Bee.
