Bishop Avenue was blocked off on Sunday afternoon for the third-annual Brew Riot, a homebrew competition featuring more than 50 homebrew teams. But while beer drinkers sipped their carbonated beverages, kiddies under the age of 21 weren't left with many options, as The Soda Gallery was closed.
The space that once housed this soda geek's heaven was completely vacant. The phone number's been disconnected, the website is no longer up, and the store's Facebook page and Twitter account contain no clues. We'll place some calls and update this accordingly, but for now it's safe to say: The Soda Gallery is no more, at least in the Bishop Arts District.
