Riverside gains three new breweries

BrewCrewThis week, three new breweries opened in Riverside.

The twist is that they’re all at the same location.

We’ve been following the progress of Polymath Brewing Co. and Delicious Science Brewery for a while now, via their Facebook pages.

The breweries (and a third, Seven Brethren Brewing aka Seven Brothers Brewing) are now operating under the Brew Crew, Inc. umbrella.

This is the first setup I’ve seen with multiple breweries sharing a tasting room and production facilities…kind of a brewer’s co-op.

It appears that there are several goals for Brew Crew. One is to eventually open similar breweries (with different brewers) in other cities.

The other is to grow the breweries to a point that they can branch out on their own.

We stopped by this week and found a clean (if smallish) tasting room, with plenty of board games for customers, and a friendly staff willing to help with suggestions or questions that need answering.

Oh, and a great selection of delicious beer.

The breweries are open seven days a week: Noon to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and 3 to 9 p.m. the rest of the week. You’ll find them at 11626 Sterling Ave., Suite G, in the same building as Wicks Brewing Company.
