Southern California-based franchise pizza restaurant chain PizzaRev celebrated a soft opening of its Sacramento taproom on Wednesday, followed by grand-opening festivities on Saturday.

The PizzaRev Taproom at 1441 Howe Ave. will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

It’s being run by Harvind Uppal, who opened PizzaRev’s first Sacramento restaurant in October last year at 5801 Folsom Blvd.

Uppal noted that at the new site “our guests will not only enjoy crafting their own perfect custom pizzas, they now can become their own bartenders at our ‘Draft Your Own’ beer wall.”

The wide selection of brews includes numerous beers crafted regionally and throughout California. Uppal said the draft beers will rotate seasonally.

Founded in Los Angeles in 2012, PizzaRev touts a “build-your-own” fast-casual pizza concept, offering more than 30 toppings. Pizzas are fired in a 900-degree, stone-bed oven for three minutes.
