Do you know what happened to Sunset Reservoir Brewing Company project? The scaffolding went up and the place was gutted months ago. That seems to be where it stopped. Now the scaffolding is gone and the building is the same. Is it not happening now? UPDATE (8/11/14): The answer below refers to permits obtained by the building's owner, rather than by the owner of the Sunset Reservoir Brewing Company, who is leasing the space. Sunset Reservoir owner Hilary Cherniss recently received her own permits to start work on the brewpub space, and she says she hopes to start work this week. We regret the error, and we wish Ms. Cherniss the best of luck.

The owner of Outer Sunset bakery Devil's Teeth got approval from the Planning Commission in March to convert the former El Grande Produce Market #2 location at 1735 Noriega into a small-batch brewery and restaurant known as Sunset Reservoir Brewing Company. The new space by Geiszler Architects will feature a bar and seating on the first floor, plus a mezzanine with additional group seating. According to Inside Scoop, the brewery will contain a 10-barrel system on-site, brewing five house-made beers and two guest beers on tap, and the food will be American pub style. Ok, now we're thirsty.

Permits were issued in June to begin the renovations on the 5,575-square-foot space, including adding the 840-square-foot mezzanine. They were also planning to remodel the exterior (but save the 1930s tilework), and it looks like that's where they hit a snag. According to a second permit, approved on July 22, the tile is separating from the building, and now they need to replace it . The owners will match the original tile in size and color as closely as possible. Now that they have that permit squared away, it looks like work can pick up again.
