The Alamedan: Brewery coming to Alameda Point, September 19, 2012


Alameda Point’s Monarch Street is a growing attraction for lovers of wine and fine spirits. And this spring, craft beer fans will have a home there, too.

The City Council on Tuesday okayed a lease that will allow the brand-new Faction Brewing Company to occupy half of a former hangar next door to St. George Spirits. In addition to the production brewery, which will be run by Drake’s and Triple Rock Brewery alum Rodger Davis and his wife, Claudia, the facilities include a taproom and store.

“Alameda had always been a dream of ours. We didn’t think it would be a reality,” Claudia Davis said after the quick 5-0 vote. “We’re just really, really excited.”
