It is possible that the upcoming shutter of Mu Brewery marks the beginning of the burst of the brewery bubble. Not yet three years old in its brick and mortar, the Aurora beer-maker that formed on 11/11/11 announced that following a downer of a year in 2016, it will close its doors on February 18. This message was posted on the East Colfax brewery's Facebook page:
It is with great sadness that we announce Mu Brewery's last day of business will be February 18th, 2017. After several struggles through 2016 that unfortunately did not work the way we had hoped, we have decided that the best course of action is to close our doors. We cannot say enough how much we appreciate the support of all our fans and we would not have been able to accomplish what we had without your efforts. Mu Brewery will continue to be open during regular posted business hours and invites our community to come "Drink Mu Dry" on February 18th for one last "cheers"!
Mu, named after the Greek letter that stands for micro (brewery, of course), will be open daily until Saturday, February 18.
