Casualties of Wort

Ever have a dream of leaving your mundane job to open your own brewery? May I suggest that you A.- don't. or B.- make sure you have rich friends to back you. and C.- open your brewery in the Northeast Heights, cause the one brewery in that area of town looks like it is closing its doors for good. Farside Brew Pub, formerly known as Bad Ass Brewery, has posted a Facebook message stating that "too many setbacks and unforeseen problems" will likely keep the struggling brewery from reopening. Though the brewery had a loyal following and supported local performers with open mic nights and music acts, competition from larger breweries with more established techniques may have proved to be too much for this nanobrewery. In the current craft beer boom there are bound to be more breweries that can't sustain a business, so you may want to hold off on that dream until you perfect that IPA or Saison. Anyone want to meet up at Boar's Nest for a pint??

I hate to see a brewery fail, but now that I think of it, I only went to this place once.
