Brewlab in Iowa City will close its doors tomorrow, June 8, at midnight. Until then, fill your growler for $7 or have a pint for $3, and say goodbye to the neighborhood brewery.

They nearly closed up shop in May because they were struggling to find an investor, but hung on for another month.

Father and son Drew and Nathan Letcher opened Brewlab in the fall of 2015. At the time it opened it was the only brewery in Iowa City. In addition to beer, Brewlab serves cider and kombucha on tap, as well as a selection of cheese plates, panini and flatbread. They have hosted numerous events including trivia nights, live music and political get-togethers.

Little Village attempted to reach the owners for comment but they had not yet responded by the time of publication.

  1. It just wasn’t a good experience, fellas. I can say that I gave it 3 chances and ended up there once more when a group decided it was an easy place to meet (we left then too). Did they brew things there? I never even heard about anything like that happening. Bottom line: the place didn’t offer any unique attribute that wasn’t done better by someplace else close by.

    Better luck to the Letcher’s in their future endeavors.

  2. Fun concept!…only tried Brewlab once though. Sat for five minutes without any acknowledgement from the staff who seemed to be busier talking amongst themselves. Maybe I just went at a bad time, but not even a, “someone will be with you shortly”…or a “hello”? Never went back.
