Sac Bee – Alaro offers enticing options for a brewpub with a unique flavor on its menu

Originally Published: October 3rd, 2018

Sacramento already has so many brewpubs that you could be forgiven for thinking we might not need one more, in the shape of Alaro Craft Brewery, which opened in June in the former location of Rubicon. A meal or two at the Spanish-inspired spot might change your mind.

Yes, I said Spanish — and while Spain’s cuisine might not be the first thing you think of in relation to beer, that influence is a good thing. Novice restaurateurs Ray and Annette Ballestero, working with head chef Jason Azevedo (a veteran of Grange and Hock Farm) and head brewer Chris Keeton (formerly of Rubicon), have created a brewery-restaurant that’s unlike any other in town. In fact, if it weren’t for the big fermenting tanks on display, a casual guest might not even realize it’s a brewpub at all.
