On Tuesday (April 2), a popular Denver brewery, Grandma’s House, announced that it is going to be closing after more than 10 years of being a part of the Antique Row neighborhood on South Broadway.

Grandma’s House will be closing after citing complications with the property's landlord. The brewery took to social media to say that they “Waited until April 2nd, because unfortunately this isn’t a bad joke,” and that “After 10+ years, we will be closing the brewery at the end of April.”

The post went on to say what was next for “Grandma” and how she was “ going to take some much-needed time to relax and reflect on her next move, as she isn’t the same lady she was back in 2014 (when the brewery was founded)”. 

The brewery also claimed to have dealt with “possibly the worst landlords in all of Denver” and that they knew “this would most likely be not our long-term home.”

“Now is the right time to move on,” the post continues.

No official closing date has been announced yet, but this is now the second time a Grandma’s House location has closed its doors within the past two years.

A second Grandma’s House location in Trinidad only lasted from 2021-2023, with Grandma’s House owner Matthew Fuerst telling BusinessDen (a Denver business news publisher), “We knew it was going to be an uphill climb, and the first year was decent, but for a variety of reasons in year two we just saw a drop in revenue.”

It's over the river and through the woods for the moment for Grandma's House, it seems, as the brewery plans its next move going forward.
