Golden Road in midtown Sacramento caught on fire on March 20, 2019, but nobody was injured. The brew pub was forced to close without a timeframe for reopening.

Golden Road Brewing Co.’s midtown Sacramento brewpub is temporarily closed for an unknown amount of time after a fire Wednesday morning, the company said.

The fire’s cause is not yet known, director of pub operations Adam Levoe wrote in an email. The open-air brewpub made from shipping containers has a small kitchen with a grill, deep fryer and stovetops.

“We’re grateful for the local fire department for responding so quickly and thankful that no one was on site at the time and no one was injured during the incident,” Levoe wrote. “The safety of our guests and staff is our number one priority and we are working with the local authorities who are investigating the cause.”

Golden Road was closed on St. Patrick’s Day due to a maintenance issue, according to the bar’s Facebook page. It wouldn’t have opened Wednesday even without the fire because of inclement weather.

Golden Road faces possible California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control sanctions for allegedly serving minors in October 2018. The brewpub will contest the ABC’s accusation at a hearing in front of an administrative law judge later this year, ABC spokesman Brad Beach said.

Sacramento Fire Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
