We never like posting these stories, and luckily we don’t have to that often (only about 40 breweries shut down last year, compared to the hundreds that were added). Short and to the point, Purple Healer Brewing Co. announced its closure on its Facebook page recently:
With a big sigh and a tear in our eyes we here at Purple Healer Brewing Co. will be ending the operation at midnight tonight August 15 2014. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us in this journey and all the friends we have made. It has been a great ride! The best way for us to end this is with a big heart felt CHEERS.
“Thanks for all the beers”
