We ambled down to Freshcraft last night looking for a pint of beer and a snack. But to our dismay, the spot was dark.
A sign on the door wasn't particularly helpful, only announcing that Freshcraft would reopen this weekend. And co-owner Lucas Forgy didn't say much, either, about why the bar was closed, simply stating that it was a good time to take care of some things.
Regardless, if you're pining after a rare draft selection from the joint, fear not: The place isn't gone for good, and you don't have to wait long for it to be back in action. In fact, Lucas promises the beer hall will be open for business as usual in time to serve lunch tomorrow.
