Last year, we heard about NOPA neighbor Ivan Hopkinson trying to open the Fulton Street Brewpub in the former Fulton Street Bar space at Masonic. Now this article in Local Addition mentions he’s trying to open his brewery and restaurant in the former Auto City Repair and Body Works on Divisadero in the Western Addition. It would be called ~BARREL HEAD BREW HOUSE~, but first the team needs to get through permits, funding, and securing various licenses. Here’s hoping it all comes together, because it would be a fantastic addition to the neighborhood. 834 Divisadero St. at McAllister.
