After six years of concocting up unique beers with crazy names, a brewery in Justin, Texas is shuttering. Rabbit Hole Brewing will be closing its doors this Friday, September 6 and will have farewell parties to give cheers to the company the next two Friday and Saturdays.
Known for its most popular Rapture Fusion Brown Ale, Off With Your Red IPA, and Mike Modano’s 561 Kolsch-style beer, the brewery (located in an outer suburb of Fort Worth) published a post on its website to announce the closure.
“We did not make this decision lightly,” the post reads. “A number of factors have led to the necessity of this action, but the bottom line is that the business can no longer support itself in its current form.
“We would first and foremost like to thank our families and friends for their unwavering support. We would also like to give a special shout out to our fans and the North Texas brewing community. It’s been a wild ride and it would not have been the same without our friends and colleagues.
“We have built a family in the craft beer community and we will miss everybody dearly.”
Founders Matt Morriss, Tom Anderson and Laron Cheek initially started the craft brewery through a Kickstarter campaign to fund their tasting room and beer garden. They surpassed their goal of $12,000 by earning more than $13,000.
Along with toasting the past six years, the next two weekends at Rabbit Hole will include discounts on merchandise, beer-to-go and draft beers.
