Three Forks Bakery and Brewery, pizza and beer

Three Forks Bakery and Brewery in downtown Nevada City will be opening their doors in mid-August, mark your calendars for their grand opening on August 15th.  The bakery and brewery, owned and run by Dave Cowie (the Brewer) and Shana Maziarz (the Baker), will be offering wood fire pizzas, sandwiches, salads, coffee, local wines, craft beers, sweet treats and more.  The restaurant will be closed on Tuesdays and open Monday, Wednesday, Thursdays 7am-10pm, Friday and Saturdays 7am-11pm and 8am to 10pm on Sundays.  Three Forks is located at 211 Commercial Street, across the street from Crazy Horse Saloon and next door to Coopers.  Since the Outside Inn blog likes to keep you up to date on all the new and exciting things in our area, who wants a gift certificate to go treat yourself to something when they finally open?  Post a comment here and I’ll draw a winner for a $10 gift certificate on August 15th.

  13. Trina says:

    Is that the old Mekka location?

    • erin says:

      Hi Trina– you’ll have to come back for another visit to the Outside Inn and check it out, but no, it’s two doors down, they have redone the building where the furniture shop use to be, back in the day.

  14. Karin says:

    I had a delicious coffee with a scrumptious shortbread cookie there this afternoon and went back for pizza and beer this evening. The sourdough crust is amazing! My daughter who doesn’t like pizza ate 3 pieces. We brought a growler of pale ale home because we couldn’t imagine making it through a whole day without more of that delicious brew. The best part: all the cool people were there! Congrats Shana & Dave!!

    Dropped by tonight and saw many friends, drank some delicious blackberry lemonade that was almost, but not quite, too tart… this is a good sign! I like the feeling of the space. It’ll be fun when the little patio section is open. Erin, as usual your photos are wonderful. I always want to live in that town you take pics of!
