Wayzata BrewWorks announced it has closed in the following release:
Wayzata, Minnesota — (December 8, 2020) – After almost five years of having a lot of fun brewing and serving beer, and providing a venue for many to listen to fantastic music on Lake Minnetonka, Wayzata BrewWorks has announced their plan to close immediately, after never having any Coronavirus cases traced to the BrewWorks.
Wayzata BrewWorks opened in April 2015, almost instantly became well known for the view of Lake Minnetonka, live music, exceptional craft beer and great pizzas. The likes of Don Felder (Eagles), Big and Rich band members, local celebrities of Chris Hawkey, Kat Perkins and Marshall Charloff have all played at the brewery along with hundreds of other local talented musicians.
After enduring the spring shutdown, imposed by the Governor, and then managing thru the Governor’s mandated reduction of capacity during our most profitable part of the year on Lake Minnetonka. We are now faced with a second shut down imposed by Governor Walz, a shutdown that doesn’t involve any sustainable relief from the Governor in order to help alleviate the economic calamity brought to our industry as a result of his decision. We have many thoughts around the Governor’s actions; we will leave it at this; Until the governor and others making the decisions around shutdowns and restrictions are personally financially affected by those decisions, those decisions will continue to cause unnecessary financial hardship.
We would like to thank all our customers over the years, and most importantly our employees, who were the absolute best employees anyone could ask for.
