“A Heartfelt Farewell from Switchyard Brewing
With a heavy heart, we announce Switchyard Brewing’s closure. As we approach our final days, we’re filled with sadness and immense gratitude. Our 5-year journey, through triumphs and challenges, including the pandemic, is coming to an end.
We invite you for a pint or slice to share moments with our incredible staff. Let’s celebrate the community and memories we’ve cherished. Purchased gift cards can be redeemed in taproom until January 14 when we will open the doors for the last time. For refunds on recent gift card purchases, please visit our website starting Monday to complete a short form.
We thank our Mug Club members and staff, our ‘Switchyardigans,’ for their dedication and spirit. For many who have been with us since day one, their hard work has been the soul of our brewery.
As we say goodbye, we remind you of the importance of supporting local, independent businesses. Your patronage to these community owned businesses sustains our community’s unique character and vibrancy.
While not the ending we envisioned, we’re proud of our impact on the community we’ve served. Your support and shared moments have been our greatest joy. As we turn to a new chapter, we carry the friendships and joy we’ve found here.
