Some unfortunate closures to report include the popular ~SOUTHERN PACIFIC BREWING~, which reopened with outdoor seating for a bit, but sadly owner and SF native Chris Lawrence says it wasn’t enough to survive in this Eater piece. The nine-year-old brewery in the Mission is closed “but will continue to sell beer at occasional pop-up events—at least until it finds a buyer” and try to distribute their beers in local bars and restaurants. Follow along on Instagram for updates. 620 Treat Ave. at 19th St.

And over in the Tenderloin, ~RUSTY’S SOUTHERN~ has thrown in the towel after five years. Hoodline reports they had a rent increase coupled with decreased sales, and really gave it their best shot these past six months. I know a bunch of regulars are going to miss this friendly spot. 750 Ellis St. at Larkin.

And read this heartbreaker SFGate piece about the closure of ~LOVE N HAIGHT DELI~ in the Lower Haight, after 21 years. Here’s hoping owner Fey Chao is able to reopen her affordable vegetarian deli after the pandemic; for now, it’s just too hard to stay open. Today is the last day. 533 Haight St. at Fillmore.
