All's well at the Rubicon

By Jack Newsham

Patrons of the midtown mainstay Rubicon Brewing Company might have noticed an ominous yellow sign in the window recently.

But Rubicon's owner said Sacramento residents have nothing to fear.

The sign, whose big black lettering warns of an "OWNERSHIP CHANGE," is just a technical measure, said owner Glynn Phillips, who recently added his wife's name to his stock in the company.

"The (Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control) is right up in my business," said Phillips. He said the department required him to fill out paperwork and post the sign.

Phillips said the brewpub -- and its new brewery operations in West Sacramento -- would not be under new management, nor was the business under fiscal stress.

"It's me doing the right thing as I get older," Phillips said.
