San Francisco’s Fort Point Beer Company will close its Bland Sands Brewery at the end of 2019 as part of a six-month renovation project, according to SF Gate.
The closure is in order to bring the building’s windows “up to historic compliance,” the outlet reported. However, when the location reopens in mid-2020, the brewpub will be branded Fort Point Lower Haight.
Fort Point acquired Black Sands Brewery back in December 2018 but continued to operate the brewpub under the Black Sands name.
Fort Point recently expanded distribution statewide in California, and opened its long-awaited taproom on Valencia Street in San Francisco, which co-founder and CEO Justin Catalana said was part of a strategy to open more taprooms in the Bay Area.
