Something unusual is happening in Denver: A brewery is closing.
Beryl’s Beer Co. made the announcement in March. After a little less than four years at 3120 Blake St., they are closing their doors for good.
Restaurants close in Denver all the time, but breweries? It’s a fairly rare occurrence — one that poses the questions of whether the brewery bubble is about to pop.
“I would say there’s no cause for alarm for craft beer and craft beer lovers. However, the landscape is changing and it’s not the gold rush everyone maybe thought it was a few years ago,” said Steve Kurowski, marketing director for the Colorado Brewers Guild. “To survive in craft beer moving forward, you’re going to be a high-quality brewer, be a good business, and be very visible in your community.”
