Batch Brewing will be closed until at least Thursday, thanks to frigid temps


Batch Brewing Company, the nanobrewery that just opened in Corktown last week, announced this morning they'll be shuttering their doors until at least Thursday because the mind-numbingly cold temperatures have wreaked havoc on their equipment. 

According to a Facebook post their glycol chiller is "dead as a fried chicken" and they're currently working with their insurance company on a claim and exploring options for replacing or renting equipment that would help them get back up and running.
