Goose Island Beer Co. has announced the closing of its Philadelphia brewhouse.
In a post on its website, the Chicago-based brewery writes the closure is due as a “direct result of the global health crisis” as well as “the significant impact COVID-19 has had on our business in Philadelphia.” According to a post on its website, the facility officially closed its doors on Dec.4.
“Over the past several months, the Goose Island team in Philadelphia has shown incredible resilience in the face of tough challenges,” reads a post on the brewery’s website. “We are grateful for each employees’ contribution to making the Philly Brewhouse a true extension of Goose Island.”
Located in the city’s Fishtown neighborhood, the 10,500-square-foot Philadelphia Brewhouse opened its doors in March 2018. In addition to a brewhouse, the facility included both indoor and outdoor seating areas.
The global coronavirus pandemic has had a massive impact on the craft beer industry this year, including the closure of Surly Brewing Co.’s beerhall in October and Three Floyd’s Brewing Co.’s brewpub in May.
