Look for downtown's Burgers and Brew (1409 R St., Sacramento) to double its amount of beer taps in an expansion that's expected to be completed within a month. The eatery and brew pub is taking over the neighboring space from the now vacated Top This Yogurt. When completed, Burgers and Brew will have enough refrigeration space to accommodate 30 beer taps, up from 14 taps currently. More than 100 bottles are already carried.
"We started the expansion with the intention to get more beers," said co-owner Philippe Masoud. "We've been doing 'beers of the week' and specials, and there's so much demand in keeping every tap open."
Masoud said he doesn't expect Burgers and Brew to close for any extended period due to the extension. Meanwhile, the owners are looking to open sister pubs in Folsom and on the renovated K St. mall. Burgers and Brew will also open a location at Sacramento International Airport's new Terminal B, which is set for opening Oct. 6.
