BOULDER, Colo. – Three months after it initially announced plans to downsize, the Boulder Beer Company announced Monday it would be closing its brewpub, The Pub at Boulder Beer, later this month.
The company came to an agreement with Sleeping Giant Brewing Co. to continue distributing its products after the October decision to discontinue the widespread distribution. But it said Monday that it was selling its brewpub at 2880 Wilderness Place and closing on Jan. 18.
“After closing the manufacturing side of our business and then creating a relationship with Sleeping Giant, we feel it is now in our best interest to pursue this opportunity to sell the building,” Boulder Beer Company Owner Gina Day wrote on the company’s website Monday. “The 19,000 square foot production facility has proven to be too large for our brewpub to operate within.”
Day said that Boulder Beer will still be on draft and in six packs at most liquor stores, bars, restaurants and grocery stores and that staff at Boulder Beer “will all have access to job opportunities with our sister company Concept Restaurants should they decide to join their team.”
She also wrote that people should not discount another Boulder Beer Pub opening in the future.
“Thank you all for 40 amazing years of support and friendship,” Day said. “If you’re in the Boulder area, please come raise a pint with us on or before January 18th to toast the fun ride it’s been, and celebrate the many, many great memories that make up Boulder Beer.”
