Roots Organic, 2005 - 2010

More big news, once again broken by John Foyston: Roots is dead, ending a sad final chapter in the story of what was one of my favorite breweries.
[Owner Craig] Nicholls had been trying to sell the pub and brewery for a reported $450,000, but a couple of deals fell through and he said Tuesday that every day the pub stayed open, he went deeper in the hole. He retains all rights to the name and the beers however, and said that it was possible that his beers might still be brewed and bottled and found on grocer's shelves.
More reax later. Now I'm off to Astoria for a couple days.

Hang in there, Craig.
