Pyramid Alehouse Closes Its Doors in Sacramento

Pyramid Breweries yesterday announced the closing of its Sacramento brewpub.

One of the five Pyramid Alehouse brick-and-mortar operations owned by the Seattle-based brewery, it closed due to the declining economic climate in Sacramento, according to the company.

“The Pyramid Sacramento Alehouse business has declined due to economic, social and competitive factors affecting downtown businesses in the area,” Glenn Hancock, a director at Pyramid said. “The Sacramento location will close on March 4, 2013. Employees have been notified and offered severance.”

Pyramid Breweries is owned by North American Breweries, which was sold to Cerveceria Costa Rica, S.A. for $388 million in October 2012.

The company said its Berkeley, Calif., Walnut Creek, Calif., Portland, Ore. and Seattle locations will remain open, and that there were no plans to relocate the shuttered Sacramento business.

“These locations are thriving and providing a stronger opportunity for us to connect with Pyramid fans,” a company spokeswoman told
