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.
