A brewery is currently under construction in Richmond.
East Brother Beer Company, owned by Chris Coomber and Rob Lightner, is set to open at 1001 Canal Blvd.
We learned this from this cool Business Bytes video that was published by KCRT:
“Richmond is an undiscovered gem in the Bay Area,” Lightner said. “The place we are — out here by the shipyards and train tracks — is consistent with the brand we are building. We are unassuming. We’re not pretentious. We’re going to brew classic styles of beer. That to us is very consistent with Richmond’s identity.”
Owners hope to begin production and open the taproom as soon as this summer.
