Award Winning Brewery Permanently Closes in NYC
A brewery in New York City has officially closed its doors for good.
2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic has taken the life of another business. This time, it hits a little further from home, but still close enough to hurt. Mikkeller, a brewery in New York City, announced on Monday, October 19, they are closing their doors for good.
Mikkeller has another location in San Diego, California but has a location at Citi Field in New York City. In their Facebook post announcing the closure, they cited that fans will not be allowed in the stadium anytime soon. Mikkeller was open at Citi Field for just under three years.
While you might not recognize the name Mikkeller, you probably know what the cans look like. Mikkeller has their beers canned in fun, colorful designs, usually with a picture of a man in a hat or a woman with long hair. Mikkeller has won multiple awards. They were named the best Danish brewery and has been named amongst the best beers in the world for six consecutive years.
The full announcement on Mikkeller's Facebook reads:
