On Wednesday, October 11, the Dillinger Brewing gang announced that their very last day as “Dillinger Brewing” is going to be Tuesday, October 31.
Therefore, just like others on Halloween, the local brewery will be dressed up as something new — only it’ll be on the day after (Wednesday, November 1) and it’s a permanent change. Owners Eric Sipe and Aaron Long mentioned that the new brewery that’s taking over will have its own branding at 3895 N. Oracle Rd. as well as the 402 E. Ninth St. taproom.
They shared the following on social media:
“We have had a blast over the past seven years, and will be hanging out/posting here with more details on a final Dillinger party! You may still be able to purchase Dillinger beer in distribution without a physical location, working on finding a partner now. Cheers!”
Sometimes when local breweries sell it means they’re being acquired by a bigger company like Anheuser-Busch, but that’s not the case with Dillinger — which is nice.
We’re not able to reveal the local business who purchased them just yet, but the Dillinger folks say that “they are local, you already know and love them, and they’ll do a great job.”
Stay tuned for more updates on who has purchased Dillinger Brewing as we creep closer to the original owners’ final day on Tuesday, October 31. Plus, if all goes as planned, you can still buy Dillinger Brewing’s beer elsewhere, likely in local taprooms around Tucson.
