The announcement is quoted in full below.

Friends, family and loyal patrons, we have some unfortunate news to deliver today. After much deliberation, we have come to the incredibly difficult decision to cease operations indefinitely. Over the past 12 years we’ve been humbled by all the local support, friendships, laughs and cheers that we wouldn’t trade for the world. It’s been a tremendous experience and we have all of you to thank for that!

We look forward to sharing a pint and a high five with you as soon as we’re able to come back together. Until then, please continue to support your local breweries offering curbside options and relief efforts during these trying times.

Signed, your JJ cast and crew.

Founded in 2008, James Joseph is the only production brewery in the Southern Nevada region. Though the brewery doesn’t have its own taproom, they did offer tours, and their canned beers were being distributed throughout Nevada and in a few other states.

Whether James Joseph shut down due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic is not entirely clear, but if so, they’re no the only brewery to close under those circumstances. Twenty-year old North by Northwest Brewing Co. of Austin, Texas just recently closed its doors for good while ten-year Argus Brewery of Chicago permanently shut down as well.

Nearly all breweries in the U.S. have been impacted by COVID-19 and according to a survey conducted by the Brewers Association, nearly half may not survive if the lockdown lasts as long as three months.
