“SacBrew” is in an outdoor shopping mall, tucked away at the back so you can’t see it from the street. The area is suburban in feeling as is the mood inside, both in the decoration and in seeing ordinary people having a good experience in a comfortable atmosphere they like. There’s a fairly large bar area with a long wooden bar with tall chairs as well as a number of slightly worn-out tall tables and chairs. There are also several different dining areas with leatherette booths and more tables. The ceilings are fairly tall and painted green (except for the heating ducts painted orange).

Parts of the brewing operations are visible from different parts of the space - some fermenters in the bar, the copper mash tun and kettle in the back dining area, and more brewing gear in the front, including a range of wooden barrels with Imperial Stout aging inside them.

The beer selection is impressive: ten beers made here (both standard ales and unusual innovative offerings), and something like twelve guest beers (from Northern California, Central California, Oregon, and Belgium, on our visit).

Sac Brew is just up the road from Cal Expo and the California State Fair site. No wonder their brews are consistent stars at the fair. There used to be a second location in Citrus Heights but that recently closed.
A nice bar area has adjacent tall table seating and views of the fermenters. On my recent visit there were 12 house brews on tap plus an additional 10 guest beers and a cider. All the guest taps make this the premier capitol city location. I enjoyed The Dissident from Deschutes, Our Special Ale from Anchor and Sac Brews own Russian Imp Stout. On prior visits, Sac Squatch, Red Hourse, Celtic Amber and their IPA have all been tastely as well.
There is a separate dining area with lots of booths and table seating next to the brewing room. A good number of aging barrels can be seen in the brew room and in the enclosed patio by the entry. The menu has been upgraded to include a nice selection of salads, pastas, sandwiches, steak, seafood and several unusual entrees. Specials include all you can eat ribs on Monday & Tuesday and brunch on Sunday. Sac Brew is located in Town and Country Village so there is plenty of free parking.
Update 07/09 - Stopped by during IPAlooza; 30 taps and 2 casks. Great selection of local/California IPA, IIPA, DIPA and other hoppy brews.

Excellent quality, especially with new owner and new head brewer. 7 regular taps, 2-4 seasonals. All are excellent and well representative of their respective styles. Newly added are barrels which will feature new barrel aged beers in the future. Seasonal beers are generally excellent as well and should be tried.

Second best brewpub in Sacramento, and in close running with Rubicon as the best. Regular patrons give the place a clubhouse-type feel and a welcoming atmosphere.

Mug club.

This person needs 3 or more reviews on the site for their scores to start counting.

I went to the Sacramento Brewing Co. during a business trip and really enjoyed it. They had a really great sampler available and the food was pretty good. Since I was out of town by myself I always like to go to a place and feel comfortable being alone. Sac Brewing company and its clients give it a really nice atmosphere. For a complete review please see my blog post.

I am trying to figure out how the new functionality of adding a map to a blog post works.
