Four String Brewing “closed until further notice”

Written by on October 10, 2018 in Beer - 1 Comment

Four String Brewing has apparently shuttered their doors, although it is unclear if this is a temporary or permanent measure.

Late last night the brewery sent out an email to vendors for their upcoming seven year anniversary pary informing them that the event, and “all future events,” were cancelled.

I followed up with the brewery this morning for confirmation.

“As of today we are closed until further notice,” said Sara Kruis, HR Administrative Assistant at Four String Brewing Company in an email. “Unfortunately I don’t have any answers for anyone other than that.”

According to two external sources in the industry, the brewery laid off several members of their brewing staff on September 28. The following day, the brewery announced on social media that they were cutting back hours on their Grandview taproom.

Four String Brewing Company was one of the first in the new wave of Columbus craft breweries opening in 2011 as a small brewery in Grandview, later tripling production in 2015 with the $2 million move to their current Hilltop production brewery.

UPDATE (11/1/18): The brewery has still not issued a statement regarding the reason for the closure or whether it is permanent, but did delete both of the brewery’s Facebook pages on October 15.
