    Very unfortunate for this to be happening. They laid off more people than what’s being reported and I know there will be more. The comments being made about staff being treated poorly are very much true. I will say Jim was a pleasure to work for and he did care about his employees.

    Fig died along with the king Jim. Every bit a good that was left in the company sadly pass away along with him. This company does not give a flying eff about the REAL employees who’ve been there through the thick and thin and who have/had undying loyalty. They don’t pay anyone for anything on time. Hell, they won’t even give employees the raises and wages they deserve. I also know first hand of all their shady ways. They also do all they can not give benefits to the employees. Their beer also continues to become more and more monotonous as they continue to pray on the new ignorant employees by feeding false hopes of a blooming career. This company just serves as a stepping to most people with real ambitions as they work towards their real career. I hope the new administration can fix the s***hole that place has become.

    I met the owners, thought they were lacking passion. I also went to the brewery on a couple of occasions when passing through the area and enjoyed the beers and vibe of the place. One of their problems is that they are in a small town and Firestone Walker opened up barrel works close by that sucked the beer geek traffic away. So the real thing that no one is talking about with this story is that it is just another sign that the craft beer bubble is bursting.

    I disagree. They are a top notch family owned and operated brewery. Their products remain excellent!! Although I have not yet worked there, I have known many of their employees over the past ten years. All have great things to say about working for this stellar family and business.

    Their management has always been shady AF, I worked for them as they failed to consistently pay their dues or bills. They get less and less awards each year, and make worse beer even after highinf “the best”. They screw their employees over in heartbeat, I feel bad for anyone that works for them. Looking forward to them closing their doors.
