“After grueling hours of thought and consideration, given the unpredictable and unknowable continuing circumstances of COVID, we made the difficult choice to turn off the taps at North by Northwest,” founder Davis Tucker told the outlet.
The brewpub opened in 1999 and sold 1,501 barrels in 2018, the most recent year for which data is available from national trade group the Brewers Association.
North By Northwest will auction off its brewing equipment on Wednesday, April 22nd, according to a Facebook post. Items for sale include tables, cookware, freezers, bar equipment, beer mugs and steins, televisions and more.
According to the post, the brewpub is selling kegs of its beer to customers, and the orders will be available for pickup April 23rd.
Only cash payments will be accepted. According to the brewpub, sales will be open from 11 AM – 4 PM and will last until April 25th.
