A new brew pub and restaurant is headed for the Mission District. Anthony LaVia, a 10-year resident of the Mission plans to open the Southern Pacific Brewing company, named after the trains that used to run through the District.
According to Mission Local, LaVia plans to open up the new brewery at 620 Treat Avenue this spring.
After several setbacks, including gripes from neighbors and nearby businesses, LaVia and his business partner seem to have worked out nearly everything they need to go ahead with construction.
The brewery will be 8,500 square feet and brew up 60,000 barrels of beer per year.
If all goes as planned, Southern Pacific Brewery will be the first brewery in San Francisco to have a dual license, which will allow it to produce beer to sell on site, as well as distribute to other bars and restaurants.
And how much will a fresh brew cost you?
“We’re thinking $3 pints that are as fresh as can be,” says LaVia. On Valencia Street, the Phoenix Bar and Amnesia sell pints for about $5.
LaVia says the brewery will also serve burgers, skewers, chicken, and pizza, all made from local ingredients, with prices from $7 to $17.
