A Truly Rare Thing: A WA Brewery Closes
March 5, 2012 - 12:46 PM- by Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog -
This isn't something I report very often: a Washington brewery is going out of business. Over the past few years I can't count the number of times I've reported on brewery closures on one hand. This announcement showed up on the Battenkill Brewing's Facebook page yesterday. Sad to report.
It is with a bit of sadness that I annouce today is the last official day of business for Battenkill Brewing Company of Poulsbo. I told myself I'd give it a year and times up. It's been a great experience and a lot of work as a part-time job. I sincerely do appreciate everyone who's had a chance to drink some Battenkill Brews and comment on what we've put out there. I'm going back to being a regular Home Brewer, which I've always enjoyed. That said ....the "brewery" (complete 1.5 BBL system, materials, and equipment) are going up for sale. I'll be posting on craigslist and probrewer.com ... i'll also post pictures of all the stuff here on the facebook pages soon. Again .... thanks and please contiunue to support your local craft brewer. They're a hard working bunch!
