Hop Asylum employee (previously, Imperiale's main boy here), we still have that Bottle Logic barleywine, along with some of the new Arrow Lodge stouts if anyone is interested in those. Also a stock pile of 3F. Everything is pretty much the same. We're getting more SARA stuff on draft, which has been awesome. The new owner has been open to letting me help out with the list more.
To those that are not local, we sold the business, yet kept our name (Imperiale) for the brewery we're opening in downtown Brentwood. I'll be around at hop, until the new spot is open. Then probably do a day or two at hop, helping with buying, bartending, and checking in on things, and the rest of the week at the brewery.

I think we're going to do a collab together before you guys open, according to my boss. he made it seem like Vito wanted to do a bunch of pre-opening collabs with various other local breweries. no idea how far along you guys are though so it could be a while I'm thinking.

Anyone see odd13 cans (or draft) in the Bay Area yet? I feel like they’ve been promoting Bay Area distro for 3 months now and I haven’t seen or heard of any still.

Yeah, new owner, but it’s far from going away. Just going to be a new name. I hear employees are even keeping their jobs.
And the news is out!

Update, 10/1: While Margolis chose not to disclose information about the new tenant, we have learned that long-time employee Christine Blunck will be be taking over the space. The eatery will be called Berliner Berliner and will offer a sausage-focused menu. We have been in touch with Blunck and will soon provide more info. In the meantime, read our interview with Blunck from 2015.
