After 14 years in business, Buckner Brewing Company will close Sunday.
In a news release given Monday the restaurant and microbrewery owners, Phil Brinson and Mark Sprigg, made the difficult decision to serve their last beer on February 3. Sprigg wants to move away to be closer to family, while Brinson will focus on his attention towards his venture, Jeremiah’s, in Sikeston.
The release states the two are hosting a bash this weekend February 1 and 2 before the final closing. Sprigg is inviting everyone to attend the event.
“We’ll have Mid Life Crisis playing music and will celebrate until the beer tanks run dry. It’s been a great 14 years. Thank you for your support, Cape Girardeau," Sprigg said in the release.
The historic downtown building, which enclosed Buckner’s, Ragsdale’s and The River View Room, along with brewing equipment are listed for sale with Jennifer Hendricks with Murphy Business of Cape Girardeau.
