Sacramento’s Ruhstaller Brewing will close its basement taproom today at 630 K St., but be patient. A new basement site at nearby 726 K St., is expected to open in this year’s third quarter or the early fourth quarter.
Owner J-E Paino says Ruhstaller will work to maintain its presence in Sacramento “with some pop-up events and kind of move around town … with concerts and big productions.”
He said Ruhstaller followers can keep track of upcoming events through the brewer’s Facebook and Instagram sites.
On Feb. 2, Paino opened Ruhstaller Shop at 800 Business Park Drive in Dixon. That site includes a tasting/taproom and research/development equipment.
