There’s a slightly encouraging sign at Mayfield Brewing since my post ten days ago where I suggested things were not looking good for Mayfield’s future. During my morning run through the Belmont, CA industrial park that’s home to Devils’ Canyon and Mayfield’s breweries, I noticed an official sign posted at Mayfield’s location by the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control that was not there two weeks ago. The notice, dated October 29, indicates the owner has applied for a premises to premises transfer of their Category 23 – Small Brewery License. This could mean a lot of things, but it’s encouraging there’s some small sign of life there.
Still, it makes no sense that if this was an orderly and planned move by Mayfield, why they wouldn’t simply announce they were moving. Their website still says “Under Construction”. What ever’s going on, I hope they are successful.
