Cedar Rapids Thew Brewing posted on Facebook Tuesday it had ceased brewing operations.
“As you are no doubt aware, the pressures on small businesses are at an all-time high, and the craft beer market is increasingly competitive. After much reflection, we have decided to take the business into an exciting new direction that will allow us to continue making positive contributions to the community. As part of this, we have made the difficult decision to cease brewing operations at Thew effective immediately,” co-owners Travis and Haley Flenker wrote.
They opened the business, at 301 Second Ave. SE, in the city’s Kingston Village neighborhood, in 2018.
“We will be making announcements about our new venture in the coming weeks,” the post said. “Our taproom will remain open until further notice.”
