Cox Brewing To Close By End Of 2023

After 8+ years, Cox Brewing has announced its closing by the end of 2023. The brewery announced in a social media post that “with the rising cost of goods and services coupled with a 2024 military deployment, it’s time to let go.”

The veteran-owned brewery originally opened in 2015 by the team of  Nick Cox (Brewmaster/ Owner) and Tim Kreider (Head Brewer/Owner). The two grew up as childhood friends before going into the military. Nick and Tim began homebrewing in 2006 and less than 10 years later would go on to bring Cox Brewing to life.

Five years after initially opening, Cox would expanded to the village of Rheems with their “Rally Point” Taproom. A large space that was military themed featuring a wide variety of beer, 20-foot bar, dedicated stage for live music, bunker, and outdoor patio. They closed their original location with the focus on this new, expanded taproom. However, earlier this year, the brewery had also announced the closure of that space and returned back to the original garage location.

You can see the full announcement they made on social media below regarding the companies official closure:

After running this family business for 8.5 years, we’ve decided that December 31, 2023, will be the last day we are open. With the rising cost of goods and services coupled with a 2024 military deployment, it’s time to let go.

Our families are incredibly proud of what we’ve been able to build together for the members of this community – we know it is more than just a place to drink craft beer. Our garage is sacred ground, and this decision was not easy for us.

We have watched love grow here and friendships develop; we also lost friends who were like family, and miss them. It has always been our priority to make the garage comfortable for our Veterans and first responders.

We dedicate these last three months to our loyal customers.

We are grateful (especially during the shutdowns) for your support, showing up, and choosing Cox Brewing Company.
So, some good news…

Wednesdays are back, we have a lot of beer to drink, and the parties and events will continue! So come over, get some pints, visit with the BEST brewery staff in this business, and help us finish strong! We will not go gentle into that good night. We’ll see you at the garage.

Cheers and with much gratitude,
Nick and Tim
