Midtown's Der Biergarten is pouring beers for a good cause

The midtown beer mecca Der Biergarten will host a fundraiser this Thursday, May 26, for the UC Davis Health System’s Department of Surgery. Der Biergarten owner Sean Derfield (who also owns River City Saloon in Old Sacramento) has very personal reasons behind wanting to host the benefit. Last May, he was driving when he collided with a light rail train at J and 8th streets in downtown Sacramento. Following the accident, Derfield spent about a month at the UC Davis Medical Center receiving treatment for injuries sustained to the brain and spine, as well as a broken femur. “I don’t remember the first three weeks I was in the hospital,” says Derfield. “It’s pretty much all a blur.” To commemorate the one-year anniversary of surviving the...

Local soap maker Sudz by Studz opens Folsom storefront

Sudz by Studz, a Curtis Park-based business making handcrafted soaps, lip balms and body butters with a focus on local ingredients, opened its first storefront May 6 in historic Folsom. Originally launched in 2013, Sudz by Studz came about when husbands Preston Tillotson and Tyler Robinson were looking for a new hobby to do together, and for the past three years, Sudz by Studz products were sold at farmers’ markets, craft fairs and online. According to Tillotson, the pair had no intention of opening a retail shop, but while searching for wholesale buyers earlier this spring, they stumbled upon a small space in Folsom (Robinson’s hometown and where Tillotson attended Folsom Lake College). They made an offer and opened up shop two weeks later. “I’m...
