Visalia brought beer and "foot" culture to Tulare County in 1852

Jeremy Schultz is looking forward to Thursdays for two reasons.

After years of planning, construction and fine-tuning, Schultz, CEO and founder of Soccer City 1852 Visalia, is thrilled to officially open his business to the public.

But his main source of excitement is also his daughter’s birthday: the cherry on the grand opening cake.

“My kid is addicted to soccer,” Schultz said. “She’s been here the whole time I’ve been at work, kicking her ball. It just so happened that we were able to open on August 4th.”

Jeremy Schultz is the founder and CEO of Soccer City 1852 Visalia, a new family-friendly venue with a full-service brewery on West Murray Avenue.

Step inside 1852, a new family-friendly venue with a full-service brewery on the corner of Johnson Street and Murray Avenue, and you’ll see two fields separated by seating and tables for fans.

The right is the field sponsored by 4CG, and the left is the field of Family Healthcare Network.

The third pitch of establishment, character count! A field named after the Tulare County Department of Education is located near the entrance to the building.

“This game has been so good for me and has given me the opportunity to build a career and support my family,” Schultz said. “The only reason it’s possible is because the community has always supported the projects we’ve been involved with.”

Brewmaster Will Pelzer adds hops to his brewery at Sucker City 1852 Byzalia, a new family-friendly venue with a full-service brewery on West Murray Avenue.

Along the walls of the building hang banners and flags representing various American and European soccer teams.

Behind the building is the 1852 Brew Company led by Will Peltzer, a local farmer trained by Karl Strauss in San Diego.

“Our goal at 1852 is to create a space where community comes together through the connection between sports and good beer,” says the Brew Co. website. “1852 is a place where everyone is welcome.”

Open to 21 and over, the microbrewery features five core beers and Community Series Sad, ‘El Martiro’ or ‘The Hammer’ and Brown Ale. The name is meant to represent both the hard-nosed footballer and the structural side of things.

The core series — all with a playful reference to sports — includes El Classico, a Mexican lager, Breakaway, a blonde ale, West Coast IPA, Away Days, Hazy IPA, and American Pilsner, El Legado”.
