It’s the end of an era for a popular spot in Northeast Fresno.
The Silver Dollar Hofbrau closed its doors Tuesday night after more than three decades in business.

The Silver Dollar Hofbrau has been open for 35 years. So far, no word on what the new owners plan to do with the building in the future.
