Why we're here...

Beer culture is coming of age. At any store, restaurant, bar, or friend's house you can now find at least a few good brews. In fact, there seem to be so many new beers, breweries and bars it's difficult to separate the good, the bad, and the mediocre.

If you're going spend $10 on one beer, what should you buy? If you're going to drive 2 hours to check out a brewery, what's worth your time? If you're going to plan a Friday night, what has a good selection and friendly atmosphere? We're here to help you answer these questions.

New Helvetia Brewing Company

New Helvetia Brewing Company will soon be opening up in Feburary 2012 in Sacramento at 1730 Broadway. New Helvetia is a historic term for Sutter's Fort in Sacramento. Helvetia is the national figure of Switzerland, which is the homeland of Sacramento's founder, John Sutter.

New Helvetia will be bringing back the historic Sacramento brand Buffalo Beer, which was a major lager brewery in the late 1800's early 1900's. New Helvetia plans to focus on lagers. Interestingly, one of the co-founders of the original Buffalo Brewery was Captain Frank Ruhstaller who's name is also being revived with Rushtaller Brewery.

It's exciting to see so many breweries reaching back into Sacramento's beer history.

Read more about them at the Business Journal and Sacramento Press and Pacific Brew News.
