They'll be debuting these beers at Empress Tavern on September 7th, during an event for the California Craft Beer Summit and we hope you'll join us! More information and the link to purchase tickets is below.

We're opening Urban Roots Brewing & Smokehouse in Downtown Sacramento!

The proverbial cat is out of the bag - WE'RE OPENING A BREWERY! 

You may have already read in the Sacramento Bee, but our fearless leader, Rob Archie, is partnering with brewing legend Peter Hoey to start Urban Roots Brewing & Smokehouse. 

This new project has been in the works since 2011, when Rob and Peter first dreamt of opening a brewery.  With their combined experience in the brewing and restaurant worlds, Urban Roots hopes to be a welcome addition to the already vibrant Sacramento craft beer community.

Rob, Peter, and the entire Pangaea Crew want to extend a big thank you to all of our loyal fans and customers.  We could not have made it nearly nine years—or embarked on this exciting new endeavor—without all of your love and support. 

Since we opened in 2008 to when we first had beer on draft in 2009 (shout out to St. Bernardus ABT 12 and Blanche de Bruxelles for still holding it down to this day), the wonderful people of the Oak Park and Curtis Park neighborhoods, as well as everyone throughout Sacramento, have given us the drive to deliver our best. 

Looking ahead, we hope to continue to provide the same experience through good food, good beer and good company both at Urban Roots and here at Pangaea Bier Cafe.

The Urban Roots family cannot wait to bring you the best in beer and food as soon as possible.  Watch this space for continuous updates on how things are coming along in the brewhouse and kitchen. Also follow us on Urban Roots social media.

While you wait, we're throwing a little party here at Pangaea in the coming weeks to celebrate the launch of Urban Roots.  Some of you may remember Hoeybier, Peter's phenomenal saison collaboration with Sante Adairius out of Capitola.  This beautiful beverage was brewed as an homage to Peter's storied Saison when he was the co-owner and brewer of Odonata Beer Company.  Well, batch two of this delicious brew is just about ready, and we've been allocated a keg and some bottles. 

Pangaea will be the only place that this beer will be available outside of the brewery in Capitola.  So come down, grab a couple bottles to go and toast to the past, present and future of Pangaea Bier Cafe and Urban Roots Brewing & Smokehouse.

We'll announce the official date once we get word from Sante that the beer is all packaged, kegged up and ready to enjoy.
