A popular Westchester County brewery is closing its doors after 15 years in business.

Peekskill Brewery Closing After 15 Years in Service

One of the brewery owners, Morgan Berardi, shared a heartfelt post regarding the closing on Facebook. In the statement, Berardi explains that Peekskill Brewery was hit hard during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

She writes:

Over the last 15 years, many societal tragedies have deeply cut us on a personal level. However, none have impacted the business of Peekskill Brewery as much as the COVID-19 pandemic.
The post goes on to say that Peekskill Brewery was a place where Berardi and her family watched their children grow, saw people fall in love, watched as their Biergarten became the hottest spot for the dog community, and saw customers visit PB as a pick-me-up if they were feeling down.

Berardi asks customers to understand that they have "done everything we could to keep PB operating including incurring debt and restructuring operations (several times to meet customer’s changing preferences and behaviors)."
Sadly, at the end of the day sales at Peekskill Brewery couldn't return to pre-pandemic levels and they can "no longer afford to operate."
