Pawtucket's Bucket Brewery announced Friday that it will be shuttering its doors in the coming months, and their brewing facility will be put up for sale as a turn-key operation.
In an email sent to members of the Rhode Island Brewer's Guild, Bucket Brewery founder Nate Broomfield announced the facility's closure, citing business challenges.
"From the start, it's been a challenge to keep things going, but too much has piled up for me to be able to operate any longer," said Broomfield. "We'll be open for a while longer while we work through our existing stock, but will not be brewing to replace any of it."
Bucket Brewery was founded in 2010, and has been operating a 10 barrel (bbl) brewhouse in a 3,400 square foot facility located in the mill building at 100 Carver Street in Pawtucket since 2013.
Broomfield, in his email, thanked the local brewing community for their support, and encouraged beer enthusiasts to visit the brewery as it works through its existing stock.
"It's been a great experience to be a part of the Rhode Island brewing community as it has grown and evolved," Broomfield added. "Thanks for the support and friendship over the past few years. I truly appreciate it."
After Bucket clears its inventory, its brewing facility will be offered up for sale as a turnkey brewery.
"I will putting the space up for sale as a turnkey facility, so if you know of anyone looking to start or expand, point them my way," Broomfield continued.
