The craft beer scene continues to grow and grow.
Defying dour predictions of a bursting bubble and bucking the nationwide trend of plateauing sales, the Sacramento-area craft beer scene has continued to expand exponentially. More than a dozen new breweries have debuted in the region in the past year and a half, including some of the most highly acclaimed suds slingers in the state, and more are coming. Here are some of the most notable new additions to the local brewery experience.
Red Bus Brewing Company
Located in the same building that holds his long-running home-brewing supplies store, The Brewmeister, owner Erik Schmid’s Volkswagen-inspired Red Bus is the first production brewery in Folsom since the 1880s. Apparently, those 130-some years were worth the wait, as Red Bus is already the third-highest-rated Sacramento area brewery on Untappd. Head brewer Nik Stevens has garnered acclaim for his facility with lagers and classic European styles, but the brewery is starting to focus more on its extremely popular IPAs while also developing a barrel-aged sour program. 802 Reading St., Folsom; (916) 467-7790; redbusbrew.com
