Agrarian Ales Quietly Closes
According to The New School Agrarian Ales has joined Oregon’s growing list of brewery closures having quietly shut down operations in the late winter. Agrarian’s website is no longer active and its Facebook page hasn’t shown any activity since January.
Located just north of Eugene, Oregon Agrarian Ales was one of the state’s oldest farmhouse breweries, and one of a very few that was located on an actual farm.
The New School is reporting that several reasons may have led to the farm brewery’s quiet closing…
“The brewery’s closure seems to be tied to mismanagement of funds along with legislative issues related to farm breweries, rather than any issues of quality or sales specifically, although 2018 presented the brewery with a host of challenges that adversely affected its revenue.”
