Full Circle Olympic has been closed since May 2020 after facing issues many small businesses were dealing with at the time. As of May 2, 2024 Summer Fox Brewing has put up QR codes linking to their Tower District Instagram.

A new animal enters Tower District as Summer Fox Brewing Company announces it will be opening a location in a historic building.

Formerly known as Full Circle Olympic club, the new location is at 1426 N. Van Ness Ave. and will be the local company’s third location since starting in 2019.

“I am really excited about the community’s excitement for this particular spot,” Summer Fox Brewing co-owner Sarah Lisitsin said. “I would love for it to be an off-campus gathering place for students.”

According to Lisitsin, this location will have different operation hours from its sister locations with plans to have lunch service. While not advertised, both CSUs and community college students get a 10% discount at all locations with a school ID.

The building has a long history of exchanging hands over the years. This history is something Summer Fox wants to promote to make this location unique. Currently, on their social media, they are asking for event suggestions, old pictures of the club or stories from the community for a “project” yet to be revealed.

“We really want to serve the community. So we want to hear from people and it’s important to the people that frequent that area,” Listsin said.

Jackson Kim, a nursing student at Fresno City College, had heard of Summer Fox but never visited either of the current locations but remembers visiting the club when it was called Audie’s Olympic.

“I would like for them to provide another venue for bands, both local and mainstream,” Kim said.

According to Listsin, this location will also have live music performances, karaoke nights and multiple other events throughout the week.

No official opening date has been announced but the current hope by the owners is sometime this summer.
