Oliver's Brewhouse & Grill, located in downtown Lincoln, has closed its doors. The large building that it occupied is now for sale.
Oliver's Brewhouse at 645 Fifth St., operated by Matthew and Siobhan Oliver announced on May 10 that they would permanently close their business. Oliver's Brewhouse, owned by Matthew and Siobhan Oliver in Roseville will remain open.
Oliver's Brewhouse occupied a building known for many years as Beermann's. Leon Corcos, who owns the building, said that the closure of Oliver's Brewhouse was "a surprise."
"There is already some interest but I don't know what I will do." Corcos told the Business Journal that he listed the property in April. This will also influence his decision.
Turton Commercial Real Estate has listed the downtown Lincoln property for $3.2 Million. According to the listing, the building has a total of 12,800 square foot and two floors, plus a mezzanine.
Olivers operated several concepts in the Lincoln Building. The bottom floor had a restaurant and brewery, but there was also an additional space for a restaurant called Antler Steakhouse. Oliver's Brewhouse & Grill, which was for sale in late 2014, included all of these elements.
The Olivers announced on social media that the Lincoln Building is now available. The building was occupied by a number of failed restaurant and brewery operators in the past, all under the Beermann name. It was most recently occupied by the Double Barrel smokehouse before it was taken over by the Olivers.
Matthew Oliver stated in an online video that "we absolutely love Lincoln, and we are not giving up finding ways to help this community."
Oliver's Brewhouse & Grill will be closed on April 30. He explained that the Olivers had to "put our family first and do some things God has placed in our hearts right now."
Matthew Oliver, who ran a restaurant in Roseville during the pandemic period, attracted attention by refusing to follow the restrictions put in place to stop the spread of Covid-19. Oliver ran in an election held this November for a seat on the Rocklin City Council. He conceded defeat to David Bass with 49% of the votes.
