Track 7, the Curtis Park-based brewery, quietly opened its Natomas location on Friday.
The craft brewery had hoped to open their second location by New Year's Eve, but a rain-soaked December delayed construction. Give the team behind Track 7 credit. When they announced the new location in July 2014, they predicted a December 2014 opening. They only missed it by a couple weeks, which is very good.
The location is still a work in progress, but apparently, they've done enough to start allowing the public to come to events.
This weekend, they'll be open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with food trucks to feed the masses.
The new facility will open with a capacity of 8,000 barrels of beer, compared to their 2013 production of just 1,200 barrels at the Curtis Park facility. The original location will be used for pilot batching and sour beer production.
Their new Natomas warehouse and tasting room is located at 826 Professor Lane.
