Keg & Case food hall’s Clutch Brewing Company says it will cease operations

posted in: News | 0

St. Paul’s Clutch Brewing Company announced on social media that it is going out of business at the end of the year.

The brewer, which is one of the main tenants in the Keg & Case Market at the old Schmidt Brewery on West Seventh Street, said it’s had a wild five years in business and made the announcement with a “heavy heart.”

“So many good times were had and providing a one-of-a-kind, safe, accepting, warm place to enjoy a delicious, locally-made beer has been an absolute honor for us.”

The brewery noted that were many factors in the decision to close, but ultimately it was not “sustainable” to keep the brewery running.

“Also, we still have plenty of beer to be consumed! Stop by and help us go out the right way: with a craft beer in hand and good times shared with friends and family. Thank you all!”

Keg & Case opened to much fanfare in 2018, with Clutch Brewing as one of the anchor tenants of the food hall.

However, the 2020 coronavirus pandemic led to a prolonged closing that took a toll on many of the vendors that leased space in the reclaimed brewery warehouse, which was rated the nation’s “best new food hall” by USA Today in 2019. Among them were In Bloom and Woodfired Cantina, which closed in succession after occupying Keg & Case’s only sit-down restaurant space.
