Yes…it’s true….another craft brewery will be opening. This time it’s Faction Brewing Co coming to Alameda, CA. The head brewer will be Rodger Davis (formerly of Triple Rock). Details from MercuryNews:
Faction Brewing Company has secured a lease from the city to move into what was once an aircraft hanger at the former Alameda Naval Air Station, where business owners Roger and Claudia Davis hope to produce about 8,000 barrels of craft beer annually.
Along with a production facility, a sales center and a tap room are planned for the building, allowing customers to sample the various ales, pilsners and stouts that will emerge after the brewers begin fermenting the hops, malt and other ingredients.
The business is expected to open by spring, according to city officials.
