EDMONTON, AB – After almost seven years in business, Edmonton brewpub Situation Brewing has shut down brewing operations and sold off its brewhouse.
Owner Wayne Sheridan told prairie beer blog On Beer that the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic was too much for the company to bear, forcing it “out of the beer making biz” last month.
When it opened in 2016, Situation sold beer exclusively on draught with growler fills as the only take-away option. That remained the case until cans were introduced early in the pandemic in order to continue retail sales during the lockdown.
While the brewery is now shuttered, the bar and restaurant side of the business remains in operation for now, and Sheridan is reportedly in negotiation with a potential buyer who may restore the brewhouse and restart brewing on-site.
