Sacramento’s Track 7 Brewing is exploring the idea of opening a tap room in Roseville. The brewery has entered into an exclusive 60-day negotiating agreement with the Roseville Community Development Corp. regarding a 5,000-square foot brick building erected in 1878.
“Roseville is a big part of the Sacramento metropolitan area,” said Track 7 brewmaster and co-owner Ryan Graham. “Roseville has always been a big part of what we do – we have a great group of customers out that way.”
The building – a former Odd Fellows Hall at 110 Pacific St. in Old Town – has not been occupied in 50 years. The development corporation purchased it last year for $352,000 at a Placer County tax land default sale.
“It is basically a shell of a building with a lot of untapped potential,” Graham said. “We are still quite a way away from being able to say it is a certainty” that Track 7 will take over the space, he said.
If it does, the Roseville outlet would be a tap room only, without the brewing operations of Track 7’s current spaces in Curtis Park and Natomas. Track 7 also might use the space for “some of the events we get asked to do – corporate retreats or private birthday parties,” Graham said.
The food for such events likely would come from caterers, Graham said. There are no current plans to build a restaurant kitchen in Roseville, he said. But there would be space outside for food trucks.
The development corporation’s goal is “to bring substandard buildings back to life, with a tenant that brings life and energy to the street,” said CEO Chris Robles. Track 7 fits that bill. “It is a fantastic brand,” Robles said.
