Interboro Taproom announces closure from tomorrow after 7 years of business
Following a successful seven-year run, Brooklyn’s Interboro Taproom establishment will conclude taproom operations at its East Williamsburg location (942 Grand Street) on December 31st, 2023. While specific reasons for the closure remain undisclosed, an official Instagram statement offered a cryptic yet optimistic sentiment.
On their Instagram account, Interboro wrote: ‘Life is just a party and parties aren’t meant to last… we’re gonna have to move our operations.’ Aside from this, they didn’t mention too much and the statement was fairly vague. This was met with a passionate response from past customers of the brewery who paid their respects.
The Interboro legacy will continue, however, as craft beer and spirit production will shift upstate, alongside the planned opening of a new tasting room sometime in the coming year. The precise location of this future venture is yet to be announced.
Since its 2016 debut, Interboro has cultivated a loyal following with its playful and distinctive brews, exemplified by the Bushburg Pilsner, alongside celebrated whiskeys, gins, and eventually, even foraying into the realm of canned cocktails. Yet, Interboro’s departure represents a growing trend within Brooklyn, with several notable businesses opting to either cease operations entirely or consolidate their physical presence. Just weeks prior, Red Hook’s Fort Defiance served its final meal, while Blue Marble ice cream and Ditmas Park’s King Mother wine bar announced closures within the same timeframe.
