Wilbur Brewing is Closing

For the second year in a row, we start Indiana Beer Week with news of a brewery closing. According to their facebook page, Wilbur Brewing will cease operations at the end of August.

Dan Hause opened Wilbur Brewing as a retirement project in 2009, operating out of an A-frame lake cabin that used to be part of a Girl Scout camp. The brewery attended a few Brewers of Indiana Guild events, but never really seems to gain a foothold in a very competitive Indiana beer market.

We wish Dan the best of luck.

  1. Hmmm...well, as a pretty big Indiana beer enthusiast who doesn't recall ever seeing or even hearing about this beer, I am not very surprised by this news. Or *completely* surprised, also for the reason stated above.
