Brewster's Bar & Grill, which is housed in a 19th century renovated building in downtown Galt, will be closed until Monday as the business undergoes an ownership change. Its team of opening owners - Jason Boggs, Alex Origoni and Garrett Van Vleck - have stepped away from the business, which is being taken over by an as-yet unnamed owner. Boggs, Origoni and Van Vleck are also the proprietors behind the Shady Lady Saloon on Sacramento's R St. corridor.
According to Boggs, the Brewster's name will stay and D&S Development, which owns the building and also the developer behind numerous central city projects in Sacramento, will remain as a business partner in Brewster's. Boggs said sales weren't the main reason for backing out of Brewster's, which opened in May 2011.
"It's not like there were huge profits, but they were there," said Boggs. "What it comes down to is we wanted to focus on other projects. We were spreading ourselves too thin. Somebody was interested in (Brewster's) and we decided to take them up on it."
