Supporters of the John Barleycorn Pub lost their 10-month battle with new landlord Luisa Hanson on Oct. 27, when the nearly 40-year-old Nob Hill institution closed its doors for good (see "John Barleycorn Must Die," 10/17/07). But members of the Save the Barleycorn Coalition (www.savethebarleycorn.org) won’t let the ‘Corn’s spirit die. Owner Larry Ayre dismantled the interior and is storing its historic decor including the cobblestone fireplace and the rafters made from an old chicken coop in Santa Rosa in hopes a finding a new home for the beloved bar. In the meantime, some of the 4,000 people who signed a petition to keep the ‘Corn open have started a Web site, barleycornsurvivors.org, to keep the community together. "Half the place was the location and what we affectionately called our ‘old crap,’<0x2009>" former ‘Corn bartender and coalition cofounder Tony Antico said. "But the other half was always the people."
