New Glory Craft Brewery announced plans Monday to open a new taproom and eatery soon in Placer County.
In a social media post Monday, the brewery owners showed off the keys for a new location in the Granite Bay/Roseville/Rocklin area with an exact address yet to be revealed. An opening date was not listed, but one hashtag in the post read “#summer2018.”
New Glory was founded in 2013 by 25-year-old home brewer and French native Julian Lux and quickly became a Sacramento favorite. The brewery’s Heavy Cruiser Porter was named tops in its class at the 2015 State Fair, and New Glory advanced to the “Fermented Four” in The Sacramento Bee's Malt Madness tournament last month before being edged out by Sactown Union Brewery.
In other beer news, Track 7 Brewing plans to open The Other Side, an East Sacramento taproom-restaurant serving rotisserie chicken and other shareable main dishes, within the next few months. Brewmaster and co-owner Ryan Graham said a Roseville location remains under negotiations as well in a Q&A last month.
New Glory’s current taproom at 8251 Alpine Ave. just east of Power Inn Road in Sacramento will continue serving beer and having food trucks cater after the Placer County location opens.
