Back in March we heard the sad news that Speakeasy Ales & Lagers was closing due to, “difficulty securing capital investment, and outstanding debt obligations.”
Today we received happier news. Hunters Point Brewery in San Francisco, CA, has purchased Speakeasy Ales and Lagers’ brewing equipment and beer brands. Per Speakeasy, Hunters Point is considered the holding company, and had no plans on releasing new brands on the near future.
Founded by Ces Butner, previously of Horizon Beverage Company, Hunters Point will continue brewing the existing Speakeasy beer lineup with no changes for now.
“The beer quality will remain the same and we have every confidence that the current distribution network and territories will stay intact. We’ll be working closely with all the distributors. Right now we just need to revive the Speakeasy brands, and I’m prepared to do just that.” – Ces Butner
Hunters Point Brewery plans to have their taproom open as soon as possible, following a few additional hires to the 8 employees remaining after the original Speakeasy Ales & Lagers closure.
