Biersch in Sebastopol

The Sebastopol spot that’s seen as many reincarnations as Shirley MacLaine is closing again. But fear not. It will reopen.

According to the owners of the Sebastopol Brewing Company, they’ll be throwing in the towel on November 1 after two years at the downtown location. Going out with a bang, however, the Brewing Company will throw a monster bash tonight called “Afterlife”.

The event features three themed areas and showcases the live funky break beats of San Francisco’s J. Boogie’s Dubtronic Science, the soulful wisdom of Goddess Alchemy Project, dance grooves of DJ’s Dragonfly, Malarkey, Guacamole and Zack Darling, plus the whimsical bluegrass of Jug Dealers. Additional acts include, fire show on the patio with Pyro-A-Go-Go, circus freaks plus a free raffle for 2008 Burning Man ticket.

According to owners, the location will rise from the ashes in late winter or spring as a restaurant and music venue under the name Hop Monk Tavern, by restaurant entrepreneur Dean Biersch of Gordon Biersch fame.
