San Leandro’s Craft Beer Cluster Makes a Splash in SF Biz Times
San Leandro is yet again in the limelight, as San Francisco Business Times writer Annie Sciacca’s recent article (“How San Leandro’s beer craze is boosting downtown development“) focuses on how San Leandro’s craft beer industry is leading to the openings of some new food and retail options downtown.
While Sciacca mentions the arrivals of Cleophus Quealy and 21st Amendment, along with the well-established Drake’s Brewing Company, the focus is on the upcoming openings of The Cooler and Sons of Liberty Alehouse, noting that their convenient downtown location and BART proximity are significant assets to both businesses and residents. We’ll be posting more information on Sons of Liberty here in the coming weeks.
Food and beverage manufacturing has always been a strength for San Leandro and we’ve seen numerous new businesses enter this field in recent years. The article draws attention to the excellent opportunity that new and existing restaurants have to feature locally produced food and beverages.
