Iron Fist Brewing, based in Vista, CA, has announced their permanent closure. Here is there official statement:
It is with heartfelt sorrow that after ten years we are closing our doors permanently. Iron Fist was founded by the Sieminski family in 2010 and this endeavor has truly been a family passion and a dream hard to give up.
The San Diego competitive Craft Beer landscape has transformed over the years which has resulted in an insatiable thirst for the newest, unique brew. In addition to our solid core beers that included Counter Strike, Renegade Blonde, Blood Orange and Velvet Glove, we spent the last year innovating. The brew crew put out same amazing small batch experiments for which we are very appreciative and have a great sense of pride.
When combining the lack of traction with our distributor, a competitive craft brew market and the final catalyst, the forced shutdown due to the Coronavirus, we just couldn’t sustain any longer.
We at Iron Fist are sincerely appreciative to our loyal customers and will truly miss each and every one of you. Ten years is a long time (especially long in craft beer years), and so many of you have shared life stories, joys and sorrows. You have given us ten years of memories to cherish.
We hope to run into you as we all continue to support our amazing craft brew community.
The Beer Alien crew have been fans of Iron Fist since their opening and we are sad to see them close. For those of you humans that also loved them, we ask you raise a toast of whatever you are drinking to Iron Fist Brewing and wish the crew well in these tough times.
