Papago Brewing taproom to close, Scottsdale plaza to be demolished
PHOENIX — Papago Brewing Company’s taproom in Scottsdale will close in a couple of weeks as developers prepare to demolish the shopping plaza it calls home.
In a Facebook post, the brewery said it would close the 16-year-old taproom located near Scottsdale and McDowell roads Dec. 2 but that it would continue to make beer.
“Happily, this will not effect the production of all your favorite Papago Brewing beers including Orange Blossom and Coconut Joe and they will continue to be available throughout the state,” the post read.
The brewery said it was looking for a new retail location and was offering 25 percent off all bottles and cans to help clear its inventory.
“Papago Brewing has always been about sharing our love of craft beer, and we hope you will join us for one final round (until we reopen in a new location),” the post read.
Huss Brewing of Tempe bought Papago Brewing last year.
Mouth by Southwest reported that the plaza has long been scheduled for demolition.
It was unclear what would be developed in its place.
