There’s a new taphouse in Granite Bay creating a lot of buzz for craft beer lovers in the area. New Glory Brewing located on 5540 Douglas Blvd. opened last month and is booming with business, according to operations manager Tiffany Haberman.

The new location marks the company’s second spot with another one in Sacramento.

“We are a family-owned business based here in Sacramento,” Haberman said. “We started brewing five years at our Alpine (Sacramento) location where we have a brewing production facility and taproom.”

Placer County was always a target for the company, according to Haberman.

“We love the community and great group of craft beer drinkers in Roseville, Rocklin, Granite Bay,” Haberman said. “We want to bring our passion for quality beer and food to them. We believe in bringing people together through beer, food and art and we think we found the perfect spot to bring it all together.”

Haberman spoke to what sets New Glory apart from other area microbreweries.

“We are irrelevant to the traditional brewing style as we brew with the seasons and on a whim to push the flavor paradigms,” Haberman said. “We have an ever-changing draft and package line up with weekly releases of three to four different beers.”

New Glory Brewing also employs executive chef Yuri Dancer.

“Our menu consists of food we are proud to serve our families, from our house-made dressing to our beer-infused pizza dough,” Haberman said. “Our menu will change with seasons and pair well with our beers.”

With microbreweries and gastro pubs popping up all over Placer County, Haberman spoke to how New Glory plans to maintain a successful rapport with customers.

“We respect and appreciate our customers and we are here to make sure they feel like part of our family,” Haberman said. “We love to share our knowledge and appreciation of beer with our guests.”

The New Glory Brewery in Granite Bay has 40 employees and is looking for more kitchen staff. Hours are from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays.
