The beer that’s sitting in tanks at Green Flash’s brewery may never reach the pint glasses of craft beer drinkers.
The facility’s contents were listed for sale online Saturday morning. It surprised locals and the craft beer world, brewing speculation about the beer giant’s future.
All parts of the brewery, including the brewing equipment, bottling line and kegging line are being sold through Heritage Global Partners.
“To be clear, this is NOT an auction or liquidation of the equipment. This an offering for the complete, turnkey operation only. We are seeking offers from parties interested to acquire everything from the site in a turnkey purchase, take over the lease, etc.,” Nick Dove, executive vice president of Heritage, said in an email.
Green Flash founder Mike Hinkley declined to immediately comment Saturday and said more information would come this week.
